Editors’ Notes

It’s easy to understand how this multi-ethnic, multi-gender band lit up MTV playlists and worldwide charts in the early to mid-’80s; their colorful, dance-ready ditties drew from a wide swath of influences, including reggae, calypso, and new wave pop. Their first hits—“Lies” and “Love on Your Side”—helped bring synth-pop to America, while the massive ballad “Hold Me Now” swooned a million teenaged hearts in 1983 and 1984. A deeper listen reveals the trio’s love of R&B and funk—and their often understated, theme-heavy lyrics—especially on later tunes like “Get That Love.” This collection includes all of the band’s singles from 1982 to 1987.

The reason "Sugar Daddy' was not on this album is beause, it's the Arista collection. Sugar Daddy from the album "Big Trash" was released on Warner Bros.

While many of their contemporaries indulged in stylish variations on Roxy Music or robotic electronic funk, the Thompson Twins were more pop-oriented, even when they strayed into dance-pop. Despite their success -- "Hold Me Now," "Lay Your Hands on Me," "King...
