EDITORS’ NOTES

New Wave’s electronic innovations bathed the ‘80s in sparkles. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the bright, ebullient synth-pop of a-ha’s “Take On Me” or the punchy digital textures of Scritti Politti’s “Perfect Way.” Even rock fell under technology’s sway: Prog titans Yes turned out a wildly futuristic sound on “Owner of a Lonely Heart,” while The Cars swapped guitars for lush keys on the slow-dance classic “Drive.” Los Lobos’ “La Bamba,” on the other hand, saluted the old-fashioned roots of rock ‘n’ roll.
