Un-music music

I love the minimalism of Young Marble Giants and The xx - and in online reviews the term "negative space" describes just what I like about them. So, what else should I listen to?

80s New Wave Song With A Lyric Like "Knock Me Down Like Bowlin' Pin."

I have been trying to figure out artist and title of an 80's New Wave song that I have heard two or three times over the years. Kind of poppy, keyboard heavy with a female vocalist. I believe on of the lyrics is "Knock Me Down Like Bowlin' Pin," but there is always a possibility that I misheard the line. I have been searching google and yahoo and webcrawler, etc. off and on for years trying to figure this out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Please name this song!

I'm trying to find this song. It is from 3'30" until 4'05". I can't make out the lyrics very well. Maybe 'Turn it up' or 'Turn me on'. I recognise it and it's driving me around the bend. Anyone? Thanks

Slang Lingo?

I have a friend who has been looking for a song with a line: When I was sixteen the American dream was not a thing of the past He thinks that it was a New Wave song from the early 80s. He's gone through old mix tape liner notes (tapes themselves are long gone) and thinks that it may be "Slang Lingo" by the Puppies but there's virtually no trace of that song on the internet.

New Wave (not French) Movies

Looking for New Wave movies. No, not the French New Wave. Movies from the 80s and beyond that were significantly influence by New Wave music, including using the music on their soundtrack and having characters that were New Wavers. Some punk crossover is fine.

Neue Deutsche Welle song identification

Any Neue Deutsche Welle experts around? I recently came across an old cassette (probably from '82 or '83) with a bunch of Neue Deutsche Welle songs on it. It could be a homemade mix-tape, or it could be a copy of an officially released compilation. I've been able to tentatively identify about half of the songs, but haven't had any luck with the others. Anyone want to take a crack at them? The first side of the tape is posted here, and the second side (with mostly unidentified songs) is posted here. Thanks! [more inside]

Modern music that sounds like the eighties?

I love 80s New Wave synthpop in a completely non-ironic way. I came of age with this music, and it's still a big part of my life. What contemporary music has that mid-80s synthpop vibe? I'm looking for both individual artists and songs. (For example, I think Kylie Minogue's "I Believe in You" has an 80s vibe, but not everything of hers does. But The Postal Service would be right at home in 1984.) Here are some examples of what I'm looking for: [more inside]

Hidden new wave gems

I love electronic pop/rock music with jittery singers (David Byrne), Talking Heads, Orange Juice, Bowie, Gang of Four, Sparks, Eno, Mission of Burma etc. Can you recommend something I might like that's been hidden under a rock from me? I want to hear something new (or lost) that is still something that I might, just might, like? I'm feeling a wee bit jaded at the moment...
