Song of the Week

Erasure is a British synth-pop duo that was extremely popular in the mid-to-late 1980's. An openly gay group, they've had some battles with homophobic groups over the years.

They were the epitome of synth/new wave movement in the 1980's and although they are still around, they certainly aren't as popular as they once were.

Their song "A Little Respect" features a powerful keyboard sound, with a manufactured dance-style drum-beat, and lyrics you just want to shout at the top of your lungs. Straight or gay, it doesn't matter, the song is fantastic, and very up-beat.

The video is a tad on the goofy side ... probably should've been more meaningful ...
