    ....I don't want to interrupt a private conversation, but casually my name has been mentioned so I can give my own, right?... I'm thinking if I should start a new thread about "80s music & sunbathing in spanish beachs"

    Triv,

    What year were you there? Gosh, was it partAY heaven or what? Like do those people know how to have a good time and do they ever sleep? I was out dancing and at the beach (lucky I made it to class!) every day and every night...the clubs there ROCKED...so besides being an excellent dancer, you're fluent in Spanish too I imagine???

    I also had fun in Madrid, Ibiza and Mallorca, and have a friend who lives on the main commercial beach stretch in Mallorca...hoping to get back there someday soon.

    *****

    Guancho!

    Hola mi amigo! Start that thread...I'll play!

    ROCK ON! ,

    Out of the choices presented, "Goody Two Shoes," (that song always makes me get up and boogie) but "I Melt With You" was a close second.

    B-Movie's "Nowhere Girl" is a great song. I used to love it so much, but the love has died down as it seems that it's every new wave girl seems to think it's "their song". Ha ha.

    Jane...out of your list...I'd have to go with The Damned, "Alone again, or". I LOVE this song and am a huge damned fan. Dave Vanian's voice is so good. I have like 6 versions of this at least! hehe. It's one of many songs I'll never get tired of.

    I'm amazed that my fav', Kids in America, is in second place! I thought only me and about three other people even remembered that song!

    I bought that album three times back in the '80s. My girlfriend borrowed the first copy and never gave it back. The girlfriend's friend got the next copy away from me, and I don't know what happened to my third copy. Not too long ago I ordered it off e-bay - brand new and man does Kim look as good as I remembered. Nobody's gettin' this copy away from me! I even ordered the "Gold" CD so I could play it all the time and not worry about wearing out the record!

    I'm not surprised that Kim Wilde's "Kids In America" is in second place, Valley Dude. It's a fantastic tune that still sounds great today, twenty years on! And I still want to hop up and dance whenever I hear it!!!

    Of the tracks listed here, I voted for "I Ran - A Flock Of Seagulls". I love the reverb (echo effect) on the vocals, giving that "spacey" fururistic sound. I also like the way the end lines are held on '...I walk along the avenue/I never thought I'd meet a girl like youuuuuu Meet a girl like yoooouuuuuu...' again adding that spacey sound.

    Mike Scores ridiculous hair cut was the perfect image for this type of music, though in the video clip for I Ran, the hair is not as obvious, and he looks awkard (and a bit like a half-wit!!) as he raises and lowers his arm and finger to "play" the keyboard. A better image of his hair (and indeed the whole futuristic look) can be seen in the video clip for "Space Age Love Song".

    For me,"I Ran" screams the '80's. Keyboards; electric drums ; reverb effects and the highly melodic tune all charasteric of the early '80's new wave, or as I prefer (no guesses why! My name, maybe???) new romantic period.
