"Don't let it be so" (MP3, 3.5 MB)

A wonderful new wave piece by people who must have listened to The Cure and New Order a lot. To me, the singer sounds European but not English. Taped off French radio around 1991.

[...] something [...] listening retrievably
Oh no no no

And in my dreams there's a place I go
[...]
In my dreams forever I [...]
It's always been yesterday and you don't speak to me
No no no no no no no don't let it be so
No no no no no no no don't let it be so
Oh no
Your wild whisper dreaming aloud
Believe [...]
When I smile it means nothing at all
Everywhere I go I see you but you don't speak to me
No no no no don't let it be so
No no no no no no no don't let it be so
No no no no no don't let it be so
Oh no no no no no no no don't let it be so
Oh no no no
"Neighbours" (MP3, 2.1 MB)

Taped off French radio around 1985. The singer sounds USian.

Should you deduce by spying on my actions
True actions
Amusing myself, I'm finding just distractions
Distractions
Well, don't [...] me, don't you take me for a ride
If you do, [...]
You better hide, hide, hide, hide, hide, hide
Everybody's milling round and trying to find something to say
[...]
Well, don't doubt a fool if you don't doubt yourself
Check them out, shout out, believe
You better believe
You can't believe
You can't believe
Would you reduce to [...] fine time for action
Action
Losing yourself, that's fine, what a distraction
Distraction
Well, don't doubt a fool if you don't doubt yourself
Check them out, shout out, believe
You better believe I had a wall-to-wall [...]
The way it's laid would break your heart
You better believe we've got passionate neighbours
The way they love tears walls apart
Will I be
Will I be
Will I be drifting in [...]
