great vocalist, Dale Bozzio, like an American Clare Grogan almost
another New Wave American outfit that made no impression whatsoever in the U.K. (well, not until they stopped being New Wave in this case and did a horrible, huge-hit power ballad AOR type thingy whose title escapes me) was Berlin... like Missing Persons, they're on the radio still, a lot, usually with this tune ...
unlike Missing Persons (an obviously proficient and seasoned rock band who'd gone Noo Wave... indeed some of them supposedly played with Zappa!), Berlin were fully-fledged synth-pop... indeed one of the few American examples that can really rank with the U.K. and European outfits of the time (I mean, Our Daughter's Wedding, gimme a break... and as for early Ministry...)
on "The Metro", Berlin are a bit like an American Visage... vapid Europhilia at its most alluring
