The summer of 1983 was, as I've mentioned before, a wonderful time of my life. Occasionally, that summer, this video, Heaven 17's "Let Me Go" would play on the big old color console television in the living room of the house full of guys that I lived in, and I'd have to stop, watch and listen. I know that "New Wave" has become kind of a perjorative over the years, but I still love what came to be called New Wave. Of course I love me some Ramones, Clash and Sex Pistols and other punk rock, but there's still room for the Cure, Modern English and of course, Heaven 17. And god bless the early and mid eighties, because in some ways they were the best years of our lives.
