80s music poll

So I'm probably going to end up doing a DJ set at Electric Dreams one of these days. So I'm looking through my collection and I start to wonder what other people think about a few of the people and bands in question. So I ask the people. Here's a poll. Pretty please?

Poll #179138 Stuck in a retro nightmare...

Nik Kershaw?

Actually, I really like/liked him.
17(47.2%)
Um, I remember 'The Riddle'. I liked that.
4(11.1%)
No, god, no, not the goddamn Riddle!
9(25.0%)
Who?
6(16.7%)

Japan?

I like everything they did. Everything I've heard, anyway.
18(52.9%)
Nothing before Tin Drum was worth anything.
1(2.9%)
Only the stuff before Tin Drum was worth anything.
4(11.8%)
Who?
11(32.4%)

Kajagoogoo?

Look, I know they're not credible, but they were quite good.
10(27.0%)
I've only heard that song 'Too Shy'. But I quite like it, I think.
6(16.2%)
'Too Shy' was the bane of my childhood. And now it's in my head again. Thanks so much.
16(43.2%)
Who?
5(13.5%)

Ultravox?

Yes! Never mind who was singing for them, the musical genius shines through with every note!
14(37.8%)
Only with Midge Ure.
12(32.4%)
Only with John Foxx.
2(5.4%)
I only know Vienna. Does that make me a heathen?
7(18.9%)
Who?
2(5.4%)

Gary Numan?

I tried to donate my hair when he needed a hair transplant...oh Gary...why couldn't you love me back?
12(32.4%)
He did 'Are "Friends" Electric', right? And that one about here in my car? I like those.
21(56.8%)
Synthesised shite. All that robotic nonsense and eyeliner really got on my nerves.
3(8.1%)
Who?
1(2.7%)

Human League?

I like them so much I can even listen to 'Don't You Want Me?' without cringing.
15(41.7%)
They should be shot for 'Don't You Want Me?', but the rest of their stuff is pretty good.
10(27.8%)
'Don't You Want Me' annoyed me so much I never bothered with anything else.
7(19.4%)
Only the first two albums.
2(5.6%)
Only the stuff after the first two albums.
1(2.8%)
Who?
1(2.8%)

A Flock Of Seagulls?

Hey, I *like* the hair. And the music.
5(13.5%)
One or two good songs. Nothing special.
12(32.4%)
I couldn't see beyond the stupid hair.
11(29.7%)
Who?
9(24.3%)


And do feel free to say anything else you might want to in a comment...plenty of room there for anti-stupid-hair vitriol or whatever...~s~

    So I was just thinking, ugh, I'm too crazy to post another song, why would I even bother anyway, when I was suddenly reminded of a track I had on Now…

    You know when everyone is going crazy about a book, or a film, or a band, and you just get sick to death of even seeing it mentioned, even by people…

  • (no subject)

    Well, clearly I'm not going to manage to post a song every day, because for the last...what is it, like, six? I have kept trying and then deciding…
