Back in the mid-80s, Howard Jones was a favorite of mine. Somehow his earnest, New Wave, synth-pop tunes connected to the romantic/idealist that was the teenaged LtL. In particular his albums “Human’s Lib” (Howard Jones) and “Dream Into Action” (Howard Jones). His songs definitely feel dated, almost silly at time, but songs like “Elegy” and “Hide and Seek” still have the power to effect me and remain quite beautiful.
Occasionally I will listen to these albums, catapulting myself back in time for a brief time, letting the 16 year old LtL emerge and remember the innocence of it all.
