80's music : [Part I] NEW WAVE (Thread)

Hii there !
It's rainning today, and what I enjoy a lot is listening music during my lost time. I listen all kind of music.
I really love 80 musics specially.
But there is a kind of Music in 80 musics I love it's called NEW WAVE (or synthpop). And I wanted to share some tracks !

First of all what's New Wave means ?

"New Wave is a subgenre of rock music that emerged in the mid to late 1970s alongside punk rock from USA and UK. (Wikipedia)
Typical instruments :Electric guitar – bass guitar – drums – synthesizers – vocals

I love those instruments, mostly synthesizers ! :'D

The first new wave's group I love are TALK TALK :

Talk Talk was an English musical group, active from 1981 to 1991. I appreciate them for the voice of Mark Hollis, the instrumental, and their lyrics !

Others New Wave groups :

Duran Duran : The Reflex

Depeche Mode : Just can't get enough, and also Enjoy the silence.

Bed sitter

Tainted Love : more popular

Let's share others music :3

for the entire way down, from Massachusetts to Florida, and while we were down there
the only station we listened to was strictly 80s New Wave
and we absolutely loved it
Depeche Mode, Duran Duran, Peter Gabriel, Tears for Fears, and more
