Daily Boom 80's Throwback: Thompson Twins- 'Lies' on Solid Gold

You told me you loved me
So I don't understand
Why promises are snapped in two
And words are made to bend

The Thompson Twins are one of the best known groups to come out of the UK during the early 80's synth-pop movement. They had a number of hits in the states with 1982's "Lies" being one of their first. It his number one on Billboard's dance chart and landed in the top 50 on Billboard's Hot 100. It's one of those songs with an unforgettable hook so you know it almost from the minute it starts.

The only thing that could be better than just the Thompson Twins is featuring their performance from Solid Gold from early 1983.  A classic synth track combined with the Solid Gold dancers is just about as 80's as it gets, don't you think?
