Refresh Mode: The Best Ever Synthpop Post

When I can’t think of a title for a post I just come up with a stupid rhyme associated with a song title or band name. I’m so damn clever.

Information Society
What’s On Your Mind (Pure Energy) (Club Mix)
What’s On Your Mind (Pure Energy) (The 54 Mix)
What’s On Your Mind (Pure Energy) (Percappella)
What’s On Your Mind (Pure Energy) (What’s On Your Dub Mix)
The best ever synthpop song featuring a sample of Spock. These remixes are from the 12” single and are the last InSoc tracks I’ll be putting up for a while so savor them forever.

I Am The World Trade Center
Shoot You Down (The Minority Report Remix)
Don’t You Want Me
The best ever synthpop band with the most unfortunate name in the history of music. The first is a remix of their cover of the song by The Stone Roses and the second, as you probably already know, is a cover of the classic Human League song.

Depeche Mode
It’s Called A Heart (Slow Mix)
Fly On The Windscreen (Death Mix)
The best ever subtitle to a synthpop single of all time is on the 2-LP version of “It’s Called A Heart” which is “Special Limited Edition Twin Set Costing No More Than Two Pounds & Ninety Nine Pence.” They weren’t fucking around with it being limited either, as The Slow Mix was never released anywhere else (unless you count the ridiculous iTunes “box set” that has a bunch of ultra-rare songs that are only available if you buy the whole thing for $170). However, I paid far more than 2 Pounds and Ninety Nine Pence for the LP set – at least I think I did – I don’t know what the conversion of dollars to pounds is right now.

    I own this bad boy too – the reason they never released the Slow mix on the box set was the universal agreement by all DM members that its basically the worst remix they’ve ever released.
