Gary Numan – M.E. (1979)

YouTube – AmazoniTunes

The Pleasure Principle was Gary Numan’s third studio album, but his first under his own name and not as Tubeway Army. In 1979, the album was a no.1 hit that would break ground for all the synthpop acts that would quickly follow – Ultravox, The Human League, OMD etc. But much like the rest of his early work, a track like ‘M.e.’ is going to better known as a sample elsewhere; in this case, its the hook for Basement Jaxx’s 2002 hit ‘Where’s Your Head At?’.
