Every weekend my Internet radio is tuned to SOMA-FM’s Underground 80s. Every so often this (once) unfamiliar song comes on that has such a great chorus, and I love it!

Some minor Googling told me they were a German synth-pop duo from Berlin.
Hmmmm, OK, must search YouTube and see if there’s a video for this, and of course there is. OMG, but what a video… as Ed the Sock would say PURE FROMAGE, BABY!!! So incredibly cheesy it will make you squirm, but the hooks in the chorus get to you… uplifting in a way.
