Starting in the early 1980s as a large ensemble of quirky, guitar-based U.K. new wavers, the Thompson Twins scaled down to a trio after their first two albums and streamlined their music to a melodic-but-danceable synth-pop sound. The slimmed-down lineup of Tom Bailey, Alannah Currie, and Joe Leeway took that sound to the top of the charts throughout the '80s on both sides of the Atlantic, with such hits as "Doctor! Doctor!" and "Hold Me Now." The Twins hung it up in the early '90s, Currie and Bailey subsequently incorporating ambient electronica influences in their duo project, Babble.

Excellent price for some great songs!

Yes I am a child of the 80's :-)

I have a picture,
pinned to my wall.
An image of you and of me and we're laughing and loving it all.
Look at our life now, tattered and torn.
We fuss and we fight and delight in the tears that we cry until dawn

Hold me now, warm my heart
stay with me, let loving start (let loving start)

You say I'm a dreamer, we're two of a kind
Both of us searching for some perfrct world we know we'll never find
So perhaps I should leave here, yeah yeah go far away
But you know that theres no where that I'd rather be than with you here


You ask if I love you, well what can I say?
You know that I do and if this is just one of those games that we play
So I'll sing you a new song, please don't cry anymore
and then I'll ask your forgiveness, though I don't know just what I'm
asking it for



Prefer Cocteau Twins myself.

old school... but preferred when they recorded under Feedback Max

Trying to buy this at £2.99 but when you checkout it changes to £4.99! Will try again tomorrow to see if they sorted this....
