Hold Me Now. Reminds me seeing the Twins after a Shaving foam filled Rag Day at Salford University more years ago than I care to remember. Oh what a day and evening. What a track. Awesome. They don’t make em like they used to. I even sound now like my dad did then. Scary.


Lay your hands on me, its joyous, uplifting and romantic.


If you were here – I spent a load of money getting an import CD just to get this track


Lay your hands on me!!!

Sister of Mercy…superb use of transitional lyrics, I loved the image of someone becoming a prisoner in their life and then in their mind…in fact, the greatness of Thompson Twins is that they make you feel good and think, so something for the head and for the heart!

Better answer the question then :)

You Take Me Up – because of the four shaped picture discs that formed into a jigsaw – so cool! And also Passion Planet on the flip side is brilliant!

Into the Gap. The fantastic title track of their best album sounds like Tom Bailey jamming with Blancmange. Never tire of hearing it.

My favourite venue!
