Howard Jones – New Song (1984)


Howard Jones

Now if we are looking back, then why not to the beginning of time when Now That’s What I Call Music, Vol. 1 was fashioned out of the purest of ethylene and chlorine. The choice is a tough one, but I plump for ‘New Song’, the debut single by Howard Jones. From his 1983 album Human’s Lib, the song sounded remarkably like ‘Solsbury Hill’. Unlike Peter Gabriel’s timeless classic, this guilty pleasure is probably more famous for the aforementioned compilation than its own status. Howard and his ‘song came and went. Now’ lives on.
