Number 945 Tubeway Army "Are Friends Electric?" (1978) .
This is one of those rare gems that change music, some people will disagree, some will just nod and some will say "Its Crap". But hey, that music and it all comes down to personal choice. I remember way back when i heard this and here in Dirkadirkastan (New Zealand) there was no other song that even sounded like this not even remotely close. The synth hooks rip through this song like a freakyjason on halloween night. The beat echoes like a church bell on a sunday, constant and eerie with an even more spooky Gary Numan harping on at me "Are friends electric?" My friends might not have been, but Gary Numan's music was electric to my ears.
It was so different i thought i would never hear anything like "Electric" again, but little did i know it was the true birth of New Wave(to me anyway) and for what was to come.
Welcome to "The Definitive 1000 Songs of All Time 1955 to 2005" & the Mellow Mix Volumes.This site is merely to question Rolling Stone Magazine's Top 500 Songs. Everyone has songs they
like and everyone has dislikes. Remember music is like clothing.. there are many styles,
so why on earth would all people want to wear jockey "Y" fronts???
Oh, & don't forget to RATE the songs. Ta
