Spitting Image of the 80's

It's the spitting image of the 80's; the revolving head of Thatcher, turning but not turning; the Thompson Twins telephoning on Telegraph Road; walking with a Walkman to Depeche Mode; Simple Minds and Communards while Cohen takes Berlin; OMD, the synthie model, looking good; CND, Enola Gaye, Greenham Common, Sade. 'Evil Empire, Perestroika, demonise the national striker, Tears for Fears, Hold Me Now, Everybody wants to Rule the world.The West End Girls, the Human League, forging a brand New Order, Amstrad, in a world gone mad, watch me Walking on the Moon!
