HD Throwback: Modern English – I Melt With You (Official Video)
For this evening’s HD Throwback we bring you Modern English’s smash hit “I Melt With You” featured on the 1982 release After the snow. While this electric single strikes many an an upbeat love song the lyrics actually allude to an impending apocalypse with lyrics such as “the world crashing all around your face” & “a pilgrimage to save this human’s race,” the melting is quite literal. The Modern English lead singer Robbie Grey, explained: “I don’t think many people realized it was about a couple making love as the bomb dropped. As they made love, they become one and melt together.” The record eventually rose to #7 on Billboard’s Top Tracks chart in the year 1983, but can be considered an easy #1 in the hearts of the British and American people as well as the rest world. Check out the amazing video above and ride this wave of nostalgia.
