This is why I love the '80s...



If this song and video doesn't put a smile on your face, then you're quite possible hopeless. Call your psychiatrist's office and ask them to up the dosage.

Philip Oakey is responsible for this tune -- the theme song to 1984's "Electric Dreams," starring Lenny von Dohlen and the always lovely Virginia Madsen. Oakey, of course, is best known as the front-man and singer for the Human League. In 2004, Oakey and the rest of the League were honored with the "Q Innovation in Sound Award."

Special thanks to uber-fan Bassnote for remembering this gem. I might very well have to put this in the top 10 list of happiest songs of the 80s. What other great 80s songs have we all forgotten about?
