Thompson Twins

Greatest Hits (Love, Lies and Other Strange Things)

It’s easy to understand how this multi-ethnic, multi-gender band lit up MTV playlists and worldwide charts in the early to mid-’80s; their colorful, dance-ready ditties drew from a wide swath of influences, including reggae, calypso, and new wave pop. Their first hits—“Lies” and “Love on Your Side”—helped bring synth-pop to America, while the massive ballad “Hold Me Now” swooned a million teenaged hearts in 1983 and 1984. A deeper listen reveals the trio’s love of R&B and funk—and their often understated, theme-heavy lyrics—especially on later tunes like “Get That Love.” This collection includes all of the band’s singles from 1982 to 1987.
