21/04/2021: “True” by Spandau Ballet

Okay. You got me. Not every song on here is a hidden gem. Usually, they are a bit ‘cooler’ than this, though.

Regardless, this one is a classic for a reason. It exudes 80s chillout, every note dripping with calm, lazy contentness.

It isn’t without its cringey moments. Sometimes the lyrics are vacuous to the point of meaninglessness. But, nonetheless, it has become an enduring hit.

Released in 1983, the song was the title track and third single from True, and went to number one in the UK.
