lyrics

I remember when I heard Pop Muzik.
Just What I Needed and My Sharona
Then Devo’s Whip It, and Dolby’s Science.
and Numan’s Replicas it took me over.
MTV was a brand new stage
The Buggles put us in the plastic age.
The Human League and then Duran Duran.
And synthesizers they just took me over.

Chorus:
New wave of music
New wave or dancing
New wave of machines
I am a New Wave Boy.

New wave of fashion
New wave of freedom
New wave of thinking
I am a New Wave Boy.

Verse 2
The Thompson Twins they were telling lies.
Men without Hats and Naked Eyes
A Flock of Seagulls to Suburban Lawns
And Depeche Mode they just took me over.
Visage, The Normal and Los Microwaves
Soft Cell’s Non-Stop Exotic Cabaret
Japan, Berlin, Blancmange, and Talking Heads
All of the drum machines just took me over

Chorus:
New wave of music
New wave or dancing
New wave of machines
I am a New Wave Boy.

New wave of fashion
New wave of freedom
New wave of thinking
I am a New Wave Boy.

Bridge
Raiding the record store. Look for the most obscure. We always wanted more.
Saving for quite a while for a new hair style that would drive them wild.
Those were the days, those were the days.

Verse 3
B-52’s Talk Talk, and Polyrock
Adam and the Antz, The Plastics, Ultravox
Pete Shelley, Sparks, Landscape, and Wall of Voodoo
Kraftwerk’s Computer World just took me over
Yazoo, The Fixx , Re-Flex, and ABC
Eurythmics, Howard Jones, and OMD
Missing Persons, OingoBoingo, Kim Wilde
The Art of Noise they just took me over

Chorus:
New wave of music
New wave or dancing
New wave of machines
I am a New Wave Boy.

New wave of fashion
New wave of freedom
New wave of thinking
I am a New Wave Boy.

about

Synthetic Things Knoxville, Tennessee

Synthetic Things are Mitch Thomas and Tim Koon, a couple of synthesizer geeks with a deep love for New Wave music. Their music is rooted in New Wave but also takes it's sound from contemporary synth pop, electro pop, and EDM as well. The lyrical themes tend to humorously display a deep paranoia, as well as a fear of robots, technology, and human contact. ... more
