Though active throughout the '80s as a musical entity, Britain's ABC presented most of its lasting work on its wonderful debut, The Lexicon of Love. Here's a chronological look at ABC's finest song offerings, appearing largely during the first half of the decade, even if the inferior single "When Smokey Sings" ultimately stands as the group's biggest American hit. What is it that feels so different about ABC when compared with the other synth-pop and new wave groups playing keyboard-driven pop during the early '80s? There are a lot of totally viable answers to this question, but unquestionably the best place to start is with frontman and clear leader Martin Fry. Aside from his slick trademark gold suit that probably no one else could pull off , Fry transmits a tremendous amount of sophistication and flamboyance in his vocal performance here, somehow avoiding descriptors such as vampy or campy.
