B MovieNowhere Girl[New Romantic]

Released in 1982.

The legendary webcomic Nowhere Girl was named after this.

October 20th:

The Human LeagueTogether In Electric Dreams[New Wave]

Released in 1984.

I must admit I was looking for “Giorgio Moroder”,

since I had first heard it when seeing “Electric Dreams”

and I actually took the time to read the credits and find the composer

after liking the track so much.

Didn’t know that Philip Oakey (the frontman of The Human League) worked together with Giorgio Moroder.

Still love this song today.

October 19th:

Siouxsie And The Banshees – **Happy House

** [Post Punk]

Released in March 1980.

The reggae drums and very distinct guitar didn’t sound like Siouxsie And The Banshees at all – back then, but if you look at them after this song (and the whole Kaleidoscope album) it’s what makes them special.
