20 May 2013 - M - Pop Musik

New York.  London.  Paris.  Munich?!


This 1979 single, one of the first big synth pop songs ever released, was an early definer of what would be the MTV sound for several years.  M, a project by Robin Scott, performed this song as a way to bridge rock and disco.  There was a huge generation gap when it came to music, with disco being the contemporary sound after rock and roll had dominated for so long.  But, really, it was all just pop music.

Of course, you remember this much-parodied video featuring Scott as a DJ and an extremely whitewashed look.  So, go ahead and enjoy your MTV nostalgia.
