China Crisis – Wishful Thinking (1983)


A lot of chat about 1983, among a good set of friends last week. Annus mirabilis or not? Well, ‘Blue Monday’, ‘Uncertain Smile’, ‘Liquid Liquid’, ‘Blister in the Sun’ and ‘Modern Love’ are already blogged and represent a very good start. Now for something very archetypal of that time… China Crisis and ‘Wishful Thinking’. Gary Daly and Eddie Lundon were established songwriters searching for that one song. I am not sure ‘Wishful Thinking’ is it, but what they had discovered was the sound of pure synth pop. The song featured on their sophomore album Working With Fire And Steel. Have a great week.
