Eureretro Tuesday - Pure

Lightning Seeds were an offshoot of the megaband Big in Japan... no, not that song by Alphaville, the band, you silly (one that would also go on to produce Frankie Goes to Hollywood, The KLF (see second video), and Siouxie and The Banshees (see third video). Their first major hit, "Pure."

You have to love a song that can be described as "80s British Psych-Pop."

Note the amazing melody usage of the cell phone/walkie talkie.

An ode to 60's hottie Jayne Mansfield.
