  • Description

    78-track, 4 CD compilation featuring iconic tracks from legendary artists such as Queen, Blondie, Duran Duran, Eurythmics, ABBA, and many more. The album showcases the emergence of synthpop as a dominant sub-genre of new wave, following the breakout success of former Tubeway Army singer Gary Numan with his debut #1 solo single 'Cars'. Electronic music took over the charts during the early 80s, Duran Duran's 'Planet Earth' and Japan's 'Quiet Life' filled our soundwaves alongside tracks such as 'Vienna', 'Tainted Love', 'Together In Electric Dreams', 'Never Ending Story' and The Human League's breakthrough single 'The Sound Of The Crowd'. Plus Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark's 'Enola Gay' and Paul Hardcastle's '19' gave voice to powerful social statements.
