Sometimes you just have to give in to guilty pleasures. These are the songs I always feel embarrassed about when they shuffle onto my iPod, but what the heck. 26 years ago, I was a New Romantic, I had the baggy pants, the Tukka boots, the eyeliner. So here's a trip back to the Blitz Club, The Rum Runner, The Whisky A Go Go and Le Kilt - my Top Ten New Roomantic tracks. Strike a pose, people,
Like some New Romantic looking for the TV Snow...
It seems so sentimental, why should I care
Haunting notes, pizzicato strings, the rhythmn is calling
We're building fires that will burn until morning
Stay in time with the rhythmn and rhyme
Don't say I know what you're thinking, It's plain to see
One man on a lonely platform, one case sitting by his side.
Read a book and write a letter, Mother, things are getting better
Remember long ago when all the kids were
You better watch out, you better beware
