As the Seventies faded into the Eighties, Top of the Pops approached its 1000th episode, MTV launched in America, and kids across Britain were falling in love with pop music away from the TV, through a small little box called a Walkman. Through their headphones came new, strange sounds: mechanical, but organic and alive. The synthesiser was the sound of tomorrow, today, and it was thrilling.
Electric Dreams is a soundtrack album from the film Electric Dreams, released in 1984.
Several popular rock and new wave musicians of the 1980s contributed original music to the film's soundtrack. The song "Together in Electric Dreams" by Philip Oakey and Giorgio Moroder was released as a single and became an international hit in 1984. It was later featured in their album Philip Oakey & Giorgio Moroder (1985). Another song, "Video!" by Jeff Lynne, was also released as a single (with a non-album track, "Sooner or Later", as the B-side). The soundtrack features two new recordings by Culture Club - "The Dream" and "Love Is Love" - as well as songs performed by Culture Club member Helen Terry ("Now You're Mine") and written by Boy George and Roy Hay ("Electric Dreams", by PP Arnold).
