What we deal with on this blog is of course mostly time warps, so let's head back to 1983, when Spandau Ballet ruled the charts with the ingratiating ballad "True". It was the title track from their third album that represented a huge change in direction for the group. Their first album was a pretty good synth pop or new romantics album, their second is harder to describe, and their third is a bid for world domination. Singer Tony Hadley did his best to appear as an heir to Bryan Ferry, of course ending up as a poor man's version, but let's give him some credit for trying. Also, as this song shows, Spandau Ballet knew what they were doung now and again. "True" is an excellent song.
