    A classic in every sense of the word Paul. And I love the picture sleeve too. It has a haunting quality to it. I think most of us know this song, but if not, you’re our star educator. You present true monumental songs that are part of the New Wave music canon that can be appreciated by new and seasoned ears who come in contact with your marvelous rips.

    A great way to start the week my friend!! You are superb in your selection!!

    A defining moment in the 80s. Thanks Paul. For some reason I always got b-movie and the Lotus Eaters confused.


    DjPaulT Reply:

    I will have to check out Lotus Eaters I am not real familiar with them. Something new for me to investigate 🙂


    Omar Reply:

    The Lotus Eaters’ best known song was The First Picture Of You from ’83/’84. But their best singles were You Don’t Need Someone New and It Hurts.

    OMG!!! Lot’s of memory on this one along with Switch On, Switch Of in the Philippines! Thank you very much.

    Lotus Eater had a popular hit in the Philippines also called German Girl. Apparently, there were 2 mixes of this song from different 12″ vinyl.
