Who's with me?
(reply to my post about jada pinkett-smith, it will make me feel special)
the only ultravox song i've ever heard is vienna. and whenever i hear it i always spend the really quiet intro going "IS THI S VIENNA? IS IT?" and then when it goes
this means nothjing to meeeeee *piano DUNN DUNN DUNN DUNN*
i go "YEAH IT IS" and people around me groan.
if my stylus wasnt fucked, i'd put their greatest hits LP on right now.
is da bomb, or whatever you cool kids say.
is the best phreakin thing ever.
i am not being ironic.
the John Foxx -era Ultravox! stuff. It sounds even better now than it did at the time.
fuckin suck. ESPECIALLY vienna!
are clearly retarded!!
but they still suck
Ultravox, are great.
Vienna is the ultimate 80's song!
but if you were 15 and used myspce you would have worked out how to make forums show actual pictures of hearts.
Kids are great aren't they. So creative.
Ultravox, YEAH!!!!! They were nearly as good as Magazine. Sometimes, me and him get drunk and fight over the CD player, "Systems of Romance" vying for precedence over "Real Life"...
It is a real shame that all anyone seems to know is "Vienna" - the first three albums are pure New Wave class.
Some great Ultravox songs from the John Foxx period (before Midge Ure got sway and it all went pish):
"I Want To Be A Machine"
"Hiroshima Mon Amour"
"Someone Else's Clothes".
