The cowbell heavy original version of Mid nineties hit song, “Missing” by EBTG and my childhood nostalgia/laserdiscs
Missing, 1994 single by Everything but the Girl.
A favorite song of mine, oddly enough from the mid 90s. Mostly I was listening to 80s songs on radio in South Florida / Miami … and PA… also watching vh1 classics on reruns on programs such as Solid Gold (I wish I had been exposed to my favorite program, “Top of the Pops”, on BBC back then.
The episodes of “Top of the Pops” from the 1980s are an archive I’d love to own on DVD, or laserdisc, for that matter. I do believe in analog video and digital sound similar to the qualify of the videos on the gold laserdisc cd-video 5″ media formats released in the 80s up until the final one ever released, which happened to be David Bowie’s hit Ashes to Ashes in December of 1988:
which happens to also be my favorite ever Bowie song, a tough list of choices.
Never heard this new wave song before but it’s not bad! If you like the same bands I do pretty much or new wave synth music then give it a listen! You might like it, as the synth line captivates your feel good brain chemicals well (played during the vocal breaks in this song).
This is me reviewing the song as I am listening to it for the first time. It’s still playing as i am writing this part of my post. It seems to be at and outro refrain “there’s no place like home…” “don’t you worry about the situation…they’re out there fighting for the state of the nation…” goes the chorus hook (as I’m listening).
The song’s outro arrangement is instrumentally impressive and I’m curious as to who the producer and audio engineer team was for this composition!
If you like new wave bands and synthpop – especially New Order, The Cure, Joy Divison, Pet Shop Boys, Electronic, The Smiths, Morrissey, The Human League, Tears for Fears, David Bowie and related artists then you’ll love my blog!
