Vienna by Ultravox
"Vienna", released on January 15 of 1981 by British New-Wave band Ultravox, would become the band's signature song. The song was hit in the UK, it would spend 4 consecutive weeks at #2 on the UK charts and would also win 'Single of the Year' at the '81 Brit Awards. It's a somewhat underrated track, but is widely loved by 80's purists. Myself included. This is classic synth pop, kids. It's dreamy, it's other-worldly, it's magnificent.
