Alphaville- Forever Young

If you love classic 80's synthpop, this is for you. If you don't dig it, I completely understand. All of my best friends in high school were big in synthpop...and it was the 90's. I was one of the only kids in my group who liked non-synthesized music. Erasure, Pet Shop Boys, and Depeche Mode were the holy trinity of my cronies' musical taste. So coming from that background, Forever Young by Alphaville is a fantastic album. It features the classic single, "Forever Young." The arrangements can be a little simplistic a la Kraftwerk, but the songwriting is as good as you'll find in the genre.
