When I was a wee lad, New Wave was still actually somewhat "new." I used to spend hours listening to KROQ and tape recording songs by holding up a hand held cassette recorder to one speaker of my sister's stereo. Mind you, we're talking about 1980-1983 or so. Devo, Oingo Boingo, Ultravox, Visage, Invisible Zoo, Kraftwerk, etc. were the bands of the day. I listened to those tapes until they wore out. Then suddenly Depeche Mode grew their hair out and started wearing wife beater t-shirts and growing facial hair and new wave went to hell, as far as I was concerned. There went the neighborhood.
Anyway, one of my favorite songs on my tapes was Seconds by the Human League. It was just such a great, anthemic, monolithic riff. Something made me want to hear it again recently, so I hunted it down and found it on this CD. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be anything else on the disk that I like even half as much, but being able to listen to Seconds again is all I wanted.
