In the mid to late 80’s the music genre that got all the play on the radio was Synthpop which was an outgrowth of New Wave with a fast heavy dance beat and loads of synths. Since I loved New Wave I also loved Synthpop. One song that caught my ears in 1987 was “Never Can Say Goodbye” by the UK band The Communards. I was familiar with the original by the Jackson 5 and the cover by Gloria Gaynor in the 70’s so I can see why this cover was popular in 1987.


The Communards – Never Can Say Goodbye (1987)

I ended up buying the album “Red” and still have the cassette in my collection.
