I'm the single electric drum that will be 'played' during a lip-synched performance on the BBC's Top of The Pops program. The drummer will never look gayer.

R25 I love you!

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 2805/07/2013

I'm the Keffiyeh that blouses out of parachute jackets. I work well with houndstooth as well as red and black.

I make the band look too matchy-matchy, so the less-out bass player will wrap me around his left ankle. The keyboard player will wear me as a belt.

I was going to be worn on someone's head, but marketing said the fabulous gay pirate look has already been claimed by Adam Ant.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 2905/07/2013

I'm the halfway good looking guy with the seriously ridiculous hair-don't.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 3005/07/2013

I'm trillions of cubic meters of chlorofluorocarbons released into the atmosphere from all the cans of Aquanet used to make hair bigger and spikier.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 3705/07/2013

I am the Hoover that Lene Lovich is sick of. Apparently, I don't expand her mind enough.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 3805/07/2013

I'm Ambiguous Sexuality, and I can't decide whether I like David Byrne or Gordon Gano better. I guess I'll have David date tiny Chinese chicks and Gordon date very tall black chicks. Go ahead, speculate.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 4005/07/2013

I'm David Sylvain, seething that Duran Duran stole almost everything from my band and made a bloody mint off it.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 4105/07/2013

I'm that little dance Boy George does in the video for "Do you really want to hurt me?". In the late 80s my disk jockey partner used to do that dance which I thought was cute - he died in 1996 and then some time later I saw the video with Boy George doing the dance - it floored me, as it was exactly the same, I hadn't realised my guy had copied George, but it was perfect.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 4205/07/2013

I'm the train carrying away Jimmy Sommerville to his new life in the video for "Smalltown Boy" ...

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 4305/07/2013

I'm the guitar that no one knew how to play the first time they picked me up.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 4705/07/2013

.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 4805/07/2013

I'm the receding hairline on the lead singer of Flock of Seagulls. He works with me to create a look that absolutely no one else wore at the time but gets used in every homage to the 80s from Friends to The Wedding Singer. I'm rather proud of that and now reside at the back of Mike Score's skull.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 4905/07/2013

I'm the Keytar.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 5005/07/2013

I'm totally rad!

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 5105/07/2013

I'm a pair of overalls, and my hygenically-challenged owner is prancing down the cobblestone streets of a depressing mining town in Wales whilst swinging his arms wildly.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 5205/07/2013

Thank you for that one R43. I was 13 years old and the meaning of that video wasn't lost on me, it made me feel so sad. I didn't look at it that he was liberating himself to go somewhere else, it was more like he was exiled from everyone he loved. Very moving.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 5305/07/2013

I'm the band who may or may not be ironic.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 5405/07/2013

I'm high-school-musical production values.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 5505/07/2013

I am Roger Taylor's speedo in the "Hungry Like a Wolf" video.

I'm David Bowie, capitalizing.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 5705/07/2013

I'm that song you can't get out of your head but whose name you don't know.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 5805/07/2013

Ops

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 5905/07/2013

Actually R57, its more like David Bowie created the scene. Nearly all the new wave acts at the time credited him with being a big inspiration.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 6005/07/2013

I'm Madonna. I will outlive you ALL!

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 6105/07/2013

I am the WTF faces of people on the sidewalks in that Orange Juice video

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 6205/07/2013

I'm the musty smelling over-sized plaid wool topcoat purchased from the overpriced vintage clothing store in Ann Arbor. A budding trendy gay will wear me to art history class with a 50's costume jewelry broach jauntily attached to my collar and with a working class lunchbox carried ironically to hold my pens and highlighter. (I wish it were warm enough for me to wear my Chinese flats!)

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 6305/07/2013

I'm whipped good.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 6405/07/2013

i'm the spicy smoke wafting from the clove cigarettes in the hands of the groupies outside the band's hotel.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 6505/07/2013

I'm Kurt Cobain. I will destroy you ALL!

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 6605/07/2013

r2 wins!

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 6705/07/2013

OMG! Look at what fat slob the lead singer of The Cult turned into!

He can barely sing anymore. (The rest of the band looks great).

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 6805/07/2013

Sad, Ian was one of the sweetest and most beautiful rockers I've ever met. That was in the 80s. Billy still looks incredible. Also a really nice guy.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 6905/07/2013

I'm John Taylor's bleached blond bangs.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 7005/07/2013

I'm Adam Ant's sanity slowly dripping from his brain pan.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 7105/07/2013

I am the threat of nuclear war, who wove my way into many a new wave song.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 7205/07/2013

I'm the multi-artist 80s retro tour coming to a casino near you!

We're all best friends now despite the fact that we all hated each other then.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 7305/07/2013

I'm one of Nena's neunundneunzig Luftballoons.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 7405/07/2013

I am the Z. Cavaricci baggy parachute pants worn with a contrasting skinny tie by the bassist.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 7505/07/2013

I am one of a multitude of fashion horrors worn in a semi post modern ironic way. My wearer doesn't fully understand.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 7605/07/2013

I'm Haysi Fantayzee, billed as the Next Big Thing, and I will disappear without making a ripple.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 7705/07/2013

i'm the lack of defined abs on the band's sexually ambiguous male singer; i will only be considered attractive for a few more years, when muscle fascism becomes the new gay norm of beauty.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 7805/07/2013

I'm Alison Moyet and I want a fucking sandwich!

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 7905/07/2013

I`m a bouquet of gladioli hanging from Morrissey`s back pocket.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 8005/07/2013

I'm the lead singer of Baltimora, to date the only pop star who thought that looking like Peter Scolari was the key to success.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 8105/07/2013

I am the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal finding it hard to believe my ears and eyes.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 8205/07/2013

I`m Enola Gay.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 8305/07/2013

I'm the white Capezio shoes worn with tapered pleated trousers with a thin white belt. I'll carry the lead singer to exotic beaches all over the world where he will sing gayly to supermodels.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 8405/07/2013

I am the Heath Ledger troll.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 8505/07/2013

I am the John Hughes soundtrack residuals, without which your second career as a wood working artisan wouldn't allow your child to attend a state university.

[quote]I'm the thick, furry bush around Jon Moss's pendulous cock.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 8705/07/2013

I'm the knock-off Memphis Group furniture who turned up whenever needed.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 8805/07/2013

R80 The Smiths were not New Wave and they sure as hell were not New Romantic. They were just a rock and roll band, albeit probably the best rock and roll band of the era.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 8905/07/2013

Habitat R88, Habi-TAt

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 9005/07/2013

I used to have a Culture Club calendar and Jon was May. He was shirtless.

Damn, I blew so many loads looking at that picture.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 9105/07/2013

R89,lately there is some kind of understanding that all UK music from the 80s is New Wave and EVERYTHING is being put in that box even Culture Club and Wham!(???).

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 9205/07/2013

R89 Well, sorry if I wasn't correct.

For me, I meant the early 80s, mostly UK driven pop.

Others are correct that, say, the Smiths would not be "new wave."

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 9305/07/2013

I'm Live-Aid in Wembley. I'm the last hurrah for most of you bitches.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 9405/07/2013

[quote]Sad, Ian was one of the sweetest and most beautiful rockers I've ever met. That was in the 80s. Billy still looks incredible. Also a really nice guy.

I know Billy, and yes, he really is a great guy. Sexy too. But alas, very straight. Even in the 80's. Yes, I tried. (embarrassingly enough)

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 9505/07/2013

I'm Bono's mullet!

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 9605/07/2013

I'm Siouxsie Sioux's harlequin pajamas.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 9705/07/2013

I'm the "mime artist" who had Howard Jones's back...'til he found success and dumped my useless arse!

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 9805/07/2013

I am the worn out copy of Roxy Music's "Stranded" in John Taylor's childhood bedroom back in Birmingham.

I'm the nacerous layer of burnt gel on the crimping iron.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 10005/07/2013

I'm Morrissey and I don't belong on this thread or any thread. I've been bored since 1975.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 10105/07/2013

[quote] I'm Morrissey and I don't belong on this thread or any thread. I haven't taken a shit since 1975.

There, I fixed that for you!

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 10205/08/2013

"New Wave" is not limited to UK pop. Blondie and Talking Heads were New Wave. That said, the term never had a clear meaning. I thought of it as any music from the late 70s and early 80s that was from a new band and didn't suck, but that excludes Depeche Mode.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 10305/09/2013

[quote]I'm Bono's mullet!

Nobody was looking at Bono's mullet back then.

We were all focused on his tight pants.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 10405/09/2013

I'm Limahl's replacement as lead singer for Kajagoogoo. I am SO happy I'm about to be a huge pop star and everyone will remember me and talk about me for years to come.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 10505/09/2013

R92 : You're wrong. Multiple web-based sources include Culture Club among the New Romantics. One linked here. You can google others.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 10605/09/2013

R92. And New Romantics was a sub-genre of New Wave. Here is another source referring to Culture Club as New Wave.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 10705/09/2013

I'm the commercial running now for the Liberty Mutual Insurance Company. I am using Human League's "I'm Only Human" as background music.

I am reminding you all of how fucking great the song was back in the day. Great group too.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 10805/09/2013

I'm King's spray painted combat boots.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 10905/09/2013

I'm a rock and roll puppet in a band called Bow Wow Wow!

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 11005/09/2013

Boy George was one of the original New Romantics, hence Culture Club being lumped into that category.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 11105/09/2013

I'm Linda Rondstadt's criminally underrated New Wave-inspired Mad Love album.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 11205/09/2013

I am "Renaissance," the Village People's embarrassingly bad attempt to stay relevant during the last days of disco.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 11305/09/2013

R113 Thats not New Wave/New Romantic. Thats just plain old gay.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 11405/09/2013

I'm Annabella Lwin's precious flower, which Malcolm McLaren took.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 11505/09/2013

I'm Always Touched By Your Presence, Dear

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 11605/09/2013

I'm Warren Cuccurulo.

The bands I was in don't really fit into this thread, but I later showed off my huge erect penis, so I imagine you're slightly amused.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 11705/09/2013

I'm a 1983 high school dance. You can't imagine how awesome my music was.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 11805/09/2013

Warren Cuccurullo was in Missing Persons, which definitely was new wave.

I'm Warren Cuccurullo's tombstone which reads "Here lies Warren Cuccurullo underneath Tom Cruise."

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 11905/09/2013

I'm not lying down! In fact I'm quite an upstanding fellow!

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 12005/09/2013

I'm the hedge clippers Helen Terry cut her hair with!

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 12205/09/2013

I'm the visible penis in black vinyl pants at R113. I am actually way ahead of my time. You might see me again at a metal show in ten or so years.

by I'll Tumble 4 Yareply 12305/10/2013

I'm Limahl of Kajagoogoo, teetering on the edge of the closet door.
