Vintage Video: Thomas Dolby

For pure synth heaven, you really can’t beat Thomas Dobly. He was a bit of a phenomenon in the 80’s.

His first hit to make it in the U.S. was “She Blinded Me With Science”.

The next one I remember is “Europa and the Pirate Twins”. This is an interesting take on first love.

And here we are with “One of Our Submarines”. I’m decoding the morse code in this, it’s mostly gibberish. They could have at least did the … — …, aka SOS. At least this one features some real guitar. It’s not completely synth driven but close.

Finally we have “Hyperactive”. A little up-tempo piece by Dobly that is pretty guitar centric with a bit of horn too!
