English musician Robin Scott, aka “M”, released his “Pop Muzik” single in May of 1979 in the UK where it rose to #2 on the charts. The song released in August ’79 in the US and it climbed all the way to #1.
I was a fan of the tune and bought the 45 when it came out. I’d have been 12 years old or perhaps a freshly-turned 13-yr-old if I picked it up closer to when it hit #1 in November in the US. New Wave for young teens. Turn up your internal synthesiser, put on your skinny tie and enjoy.
