Bubbling under: Fade to grey (Visage)

Any Eighties' hits compilation should include this 1980 one-hit wonder from British New Romantics icons Visage (image credit), which at that time included Midge Ure of Ultravox fame. Backed by a wall of synthesizer sounds, lead singer Steve Strange whispers his sketchy lyrics, while a young female student from Luxembourg murmurs lines in French. Fade to grey is at the same time bizarre and catching, and can be enjoyed both as great music to listen to and as a fantastic dance record.
