Thompson Twins - Hold Me Now

Thompson Twins were to many the very image of what was wrong with 80's pop music, to me quite the opposite. Tom Bailey, Alannah Currie and Joe Leeway did everything pop stars are supposed to do, including dressing up in ridiculous outfits, and with a song like "Hold Me Now", actually showing a certain ambition, incorporating xylophone, a grand piano and some Latin percussion into the standard synths and fretless bass that were so the rage when it was released in 1983. It paid off too. "Hold Me Now" was a big hit, and I think it works pretty well 30 years on. I'll be careful about labelling this song a classic, but it's a more than decent pop song.

Watch and listen
