Top Track # 14 - Hurts - 'Wonderful Life'
Many moons ago in the '80's a band/chap called Black released a rather ace tune called 'Wonderful Life'. This isn't it. It is, however, even more '80's than it's namesake . The band in question, Hurts, are a mix of Depeche Mode and the Pet Shop Boys, with a bit of Hue and Cry thrown in for good measure (top marks for the '80's style moody black and white video featuring a random dancing girl too). If that doesn't send you screaming out your front door in horror you'll love this track as much as I do. A Birmingham gig ASAP pretty please.
