A synth-pop mix for summer.

Not sure why, but I always feel like dated synth sounds and shamelessly poppy tunes accompany hot weather really well.  Here's a mix to enhance hot days and long sunsets.  I've subtitled this mix "I'm tired of crying on the stairs." 





1)  Simple Minds — 'Someone Somewhere in Summertime' (extended mix) (1982)
2)  Depeche Mode — 'New Life' (1981)
3)  The The — 'That Was the Day' (1983)
4)  Tears for Fears — 'Pale Shelter' (1983)
5)  Tones on Tail — 'Performance' (1984)
6)  Pet Shop Boys — 'Love Comes Quickly' (extended mix) (1986)
7)  The Blue Nile — 'The Downtown Lights' (1989)
8)  The Horrors — 'You Said' (2011)
9)  The Wake — 'Talk About the Past' (Kid Jensen Session) (1984)
10)  The Human League — 'Seconds' (1981)
11)  For Against — 'Amen Yves (White Circles)' (1984)
12)  Kate Bush — 'Experiment IV' (extended mix) (1985)
13)  Future Conditional feat. Bob Wratten — 'We Don't Just Disappear' (2007)
14)  New Order — 'Vanishing Point' (1989)
15)  Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark — 'Sacred Heart' (1981)
16)  David Sylvian and Ryuichi Sakamoto — 'Forbidden Colours' (1983)
17)  Gary Numan — 'Cry, the Clock Said' (1981)
18)  The Postal Service — 'Sleeping In' (2003)

Enjoy.
