A couple of months ago, I was listening to my personalized Yahoo radio; among the endless songs was "Crushed By The Wheels Of Industry", by none other than the Heaven 17. And I'm thinking to myself, "OMG, isn't that that band named after that one in 'A Clockwork Orange'?" (I had gotten the movie on DVD, so that's how I figured it so easily, though that goes without saying...)

I took a listen to some of their other songs, & now, I absolutely love these guys! [Big Grin] Their albums go for good prices on Amazon, so I should be getting them shortly...Anyway, their music is so whimsically delightful. I wonder if there are any other fans lurking around here... [Wink]

I thought their biggest hit was Let me Go.. That is the only song by them I know, but I love it. Maybe I should buy their Greatest hits to see whats on there!

Certainy here in the UK it's Temptation that most people start singing when their name is mentioned....
********
Ive never been closer
Ive tried to understand
That certain feeling
Carved by anothers hand
But its too late to hesitate
We cant keep on living like this
Leave no track
Dont look back

All I desire
Temptation
Keep climbing higher and higher
Temptation
Adorable creatures
Temptation
With unacceptable features
Temptation
Trouble is coming
Temptation
Its just the high cost of loving
Temptation
You can take it or leave it
Temptation
But youd better believe it

Youve got to make me an offer
That cannot be ignored
So lets head for home now
Everything I have is yours
Step by step and day by day
Every second counts I cant break away
Leave no trace
Hide your face

All I desire
Temptation
Keep climbing higher and higher
Temptation
Adorable creatures
Temptation
With unacceptable features
Temptation
Trouble is coming
Temptation
Its just the high cost of loving
Temptation
You can take it or leave it
Temptation
But youd better believe it

Keep us from temptation
Lead us not into temptation

Trying to find it
Temptation
Youve got to get up behind it
Temptation
Put your dime in the hot slot
Temptation
But its a million to one shot
Temptation
You think that youre right no
Temptation
Youre going to fake it tonight now
Temptation
Give me a breakdown
Temptation
Because its time for a shakedown
******

You can find out more at their website, HEAVEN 17 DOT COM

You need to register (free) to see all the site, but there's a whole load of information there - and the news that the band are still together and still touring!

I have a few albums by them, I think Penthouse and Pavement was the best. I think some members of Heaven 17 were in the original incarnation of Human League before they split and got the two girls in the band.

We don't need this Fascist groove thing was a popular song as well.

I did hear something about the Human League ties. Very fascinating to know that, actually, since I'm also a fan of their music, too. ^_^

I have the 12 inch of Let Me go somewhere. They take up a lot of space, as do laser discs. But they are sure fun to look at.

Tell me about it; my mom still has a lot of her old 80's vinyls. ^_^

I only knew of Let Me Go, but I downloaded the songs you guys recommended and they're good...so anyone who liked Let Me Go should try to get their hands on some of their other stuff.
