Say Hello, Wave Goodbye  performed by  Soft Cell  (1981)
Composed by Almond/Ball
From: England
Recommended by Mike [profile] on Thursday 1st April 2004

A pop song of epic grandeur. Marc Almond's rather out of tune singing doesn't ultimately detract from what is a great song and a very good recorded performance. The synth player of the duo, Dave Ball, appears to have been a somewhat underrated pop genius.

from Non-stop erotic cabaret (Some Bizarre), available on CD (Mercury)
