My office got a satellite radio toy a few months ago, and the usual office music wars eventually settled on a handful of stations we could mostly agree on. Jazz, 90s alternative, and then this eighties station out of Berlin.
Most of what the Berlin station plays is stuff we've all heard before, aside from the occasional song in German. But then this one song came on in English that I had never heard before, and because the lyrics were a bit of a mondegreen, I failed in my Google fu. My boss used an app on his phone to determine that the song was "Hymn" by Ultravox, which never hit the top forties in the US, hence why I had never heard it before.
I'm sure there are other song gems I either didn't hear when they first came out (or in the ensuing decade), but which I'd probably enjoy.
Anyone have a similar experience?
Also, the video for that song is just badass.
