Music Box: Synth Pop Heaven

Three often-overlooked synth classics from the early '80s:

"Love Action (I Believe in Love)" by the Human League. The video for the band's smart followup to the No. 1 international smash "Don't You Want Me" is almost as hot as singer Phil Oakey's wedge haircut ...

"Fade to Grey" by Visage. Steve Strange was never more haunting ...

"Pocket Calculator" by Kraftwerk. Best remembered for "The Model," the band's 1981 single also added up nicely ...

The Visage song is one of my favorites. I'd like to suggest an addition to your list of the overlooked,
"Vienna" by Ultravox.
