JOHN FOXX - BURNING CAR (lost hit)

Hello and welcome back....John Foxx ( Dennis Leigh) was originally the lead singer of the band "Ultravox" before leaving the band and replaced by Midge Ure.
Released in 1980, "Burning Car" made it to No 35 in the U.K music charts. Its a hard edge electronic song with heavy use of classic Analogue Synthesizers.
Enjoy.

THE PEPPERS - PEPPER BOX (very lost hit)

Hello and welcome back....A classic example of very early (1973-4) classic synth, this one hit wonder from a french band called The Peppers made it to No 6 in the music charts.
No singing but an excellent tune with the sweet sounds of the Moog Synthesizer.
Enjoy .

ASIA - HEAT OF THE MOMENT (lost hit)

Hello and welcome back....Asia was born from other members from different bands, the one who caught my eye was the Synth player, Geoff Downs,who was from the band Buggles (Video killed the Radio Star).
Other refugees that called Asia home came from bands like Yes, King Crimson & Emerson Lake & Palmer.
Hitting the top 5 in the music charts, the song Heat of the Moment was one of my favourite songs around 1982 and still remains to this day....An excellent example of old school bands moving to mainstream and what they can achieve.

DARYL HALL - DREAMTIME (lost hit)

Hello and welcome back..... An excellent song from the other half of "Hall & Oats", Released back in 1986 this song still sounds refreshing and has a happy vibe.... Heavy on the Flanger towards the end but then again it was a Dreamtime.
