Retro Futura Tour 2014
What it is: a gathering of some of the most popular British new-wave musicians from the 1980s How you remember Tom Bailey: as the bassist and vocalist of the Thompson Twins, whose super-hits include "In the Name of Love," "Lies,"and "Hold Me Now" How you remember Howard Jones: from his double-platinum album Human's Lib Jones' Hollywood connection: his song "Like to Get to Know You Well" soundtracked John Cusack fixing his Camaro in the surreal '80s comedy Better Off Dead How Ultravox's Midge Ure describes their hit "Vienna": "We wanted to take the song and make it incredibly pompous in the middle, leaving it very sparse before and after, but finishing with a typically over-the top classical ending. The whole thing was a bit tongue in cheek." Evidence the public might not have picked up on the joke: the single rocketed to the number-two spot, and was later named by Radio 2 to be Britain's favorite song to ever halt at the runner-up spot China Crisis's claim to fame: the hit single "Wishful Thinking" How Katrina Leskanich of Katrina and The Waves improved the '80s and water-park lines everywhere: by lending her vocals to "Walking on Sunshine"
