Thank you for listening David :)

Great show Gary. Always superb to hear Talk Talk and OMD. Great remix of I think We're Alone Now, I still can't believe Girls Aloud copied that, how desperate! Never heard those songs by Visage, Erasure or Dead or Alive before, but they were great, bands that always impress. I love that Alison number, her songs were always good with or without Vince Clark. Hearing True Faith a lot lately, it was on your most recent Introduction/No Introduction as well, can only be a good thing.

I am so pleased I haven't heard Girls Aloud's version of "I Think We're Alone Now", Over the years Tiffany's version has grown on me, wasn't keen on it in the 80s when it first came out, agree it is a great 12 inch version. Talk Talk sadly underrated for me. I like Alison Moyet's older stuff not so keen on her recent album. "True faith" a fantastic song as you mentioned, the video was great as well.

Thanks for listening mate and glad you enjoyed it.

Alison Moyet - Invisible wins outright in this set, what a great tune every time I hear it I can't believe the 80s let her down by not taking that to #1. Some other personal faves Animotion - Obsession, Tiffany - I Think We're Alone Now and OMD - Dreaming (not sure this was the best mix of that song - a bit too heavy on the production and lost the 7" radio friendly charm) . A few not too familiar with the closing dead or alive very nice, visage and talk talk both strong tracks but never heard either instead to my shame I knew every word of the opening phil collins instead :)

"Invisible" definitely deserved to hit the top spot when it was released, it is one of her best singles and the 12 Inch is a belter. For some reason OMD released 2 different 12 Inch versions of "Dreaming", the other 12 inch is better. I can't believe I opened the show with Phil Collins!!!!! Thanks for listening mate and you enjoyed the tunes :)
