Back in the 80s, 'Sex' was too fruity to put on daytime tv and was reserved for late night viewers only but in today's society it looks quiet tame..
'Sex' came out in 1982, lead vocals by Terri Nunn and was from the album "Pleasure Victim"
BERLIN - DANCING IN BERLIN
BERLIN - NO MORE WORDS
BERLIN - LIKE FLAMES

The sexually charged "All Touch" was sung by the Canadian band ' Rough Trade' and was their first 1981 U.S hit.
The lead singer (Carole Pope) has one of the best raunchy voices in music ( i think ) which matched her attire sometimes, often seen strutting the stage in her bondage gear and singing lesbian themes...
You Go Girl... compared to some of her other videos, this is quiet tame.. cheers

As a synth loving dude, I loved this era..
The "New Romantic" era starting roughly 1979 - 1984 and with punk now dead ( kind of )..clubs around London ( Blitz & st Moritz ) started to cater for a different taste, fronted by heavy synths, big hair and puffy pirate shirts ...
Bands like "Adam & the ants", "spandau ballet", "Visage" and "Duran Duran" took to this scene like a duck to water...
In Australia we had similar bands ( "real life", "pseudo echo", "dear enemy" and "kids in the kitchen" ) that were sort of in this "new romantic" category.. So i have decided, for your musical pleasure to look at my top 10 "New romantic" bands and remember the best era of synth music.. enjoy..
UPDATE - 28/03/2014 = Music Download now available...
No 1 = VISAGE - fade to grey
No 2 = SPANDAU BALLET = cut a long story short
No 3 = DURAN DURAN - girls on film ( naughty version ) ( warning - nudity )
no 4 = CLASSIX NOUVEAUX - guilty
no 5 - ADAM & THE ANTS - stand and deliver
no 6 = JAPAN - quiet life
no 7 = HEAVEN 17 - temptation
no 8 = TRANS X - message on my radio
no 9 = KAJAGOOGOO - too shy
no 10 = ULTRAVOX - the voice
Again ... my request goes out for a time machine .. ANYONE ???.. Maybe one day in the future or was that the past.. cheers.
