New Wave Wednesday: "Lies", by Thompson Twins (music video)

The New Wave band Thompson Twins hit #1 on the U.S. dance charts in January, 1983 with this classic, "Lies". The band's signature look created quite a stir in the "post-disco" days when most of American men were still sporting over-moussed John Travolta hair and gold chains and women were holding on to their big, poofy, Farrah Fawcett locks. The band's look may seem tame by today's standards, but during the early 80's, nobody was wearing dreds or faux-hawks.
