I used to get them as often as possible, but lately, of course, I haven;t had the money. The last combo I got was a Polydor TV 2-CD set called Electric Dreams, and it POPS baby.
Many of the usual suspects are on here, Midge Ure, Soft Cell, OMD, Erasure, Human League, but not always with the songs that must US folk heard. Each of the tracks charted in the UK...
New Order (duh)
Tears For Fears (2, including "Change")
Yazoo (2, including "Don't Go")
Duran Duran ("Careless Memories" what they could/should have been)
Re-Flex ("Politics of Dancing" of cuss)
Flock of Seagulls
Sharpe & Numan
XTC ("Sgt. Rock")
People at the station have borrowed/copied it about 100 times. Anyone have others that top this one?
And to add a little bit on the Avril thing: I saw the nominations and she pronounced David Bowie, David Bow-ee. If you consider yourself a "serious" rock/pop artist, how in the blue hell do you not know who David freakin' Bowie is?
