Spandau Ballet - True

This song by Spandau Ballet had become a true classic, in more ways than one. This classic found a second life in the world of R&B and Hip Hop when it was covered and sampled by many R&B and Hip Hop artists for years to come. Let's appreciate this classic gem by Spandau Ballet.

It's 35. Its sound is timeless.

I have this song in a 80s playlist. I'm so glad I grew up when these songs were being released

Arguably Spandaus best song. They also were a more soulful group compared to their contemporaries of the time like Duran Duran who were more Dance orientated. I wonder how a Spandau/Nile Rodgers collab would have sounded though.

Love it, remember it as a child and its in my hot 1983 song list.

.

You are all missing one other - late 1982's Communication, it is about 80s synth as it gets. Plus you know the Kemp brothers acted and very well as the Krays in a 1990 TV movie.

Got some kind of love for you, and I don't even know your name
