Expansive09's profile picture
Stone cold 80's New Wave classic synth bass, chunky strats, horn stabs and Michael's vox. You get hooks, great lyrics and that je nais se qoui sound thats unmistakably the 1980s! Gone are wah-wah pedals and disco beats of the 1970s what you get was that progressive new pop sound being carved out. Worth owning just for The Swing!
