"There she stood, this fancy fashion creature"
I love it when I discover older songs that sound to me like direct precursors to some of my favorite music of today. Take James Freud (a glam-pop artist popular in Australia in the 80's). I can completely see Melody Club singing this song, Modern Girl. It's got that great, glossy, synthy sound and it's ridiculously catchy. Unfortunately, I haven't found another song by him that's this good. It's a shame, because if all of his stuff was this perfect, he might almost be as good as Melody Club! As it stands, for me he's a one hit wonder. The video is quite entertaining as well. Campy as hell, of course, but that makes it all the better... a perfect representation of videos in 1980.
