Anglo For Your Ear: Philip Oakey and Giorgio Moroder’s “Together In Electric Dreams”

I’ve been on a Human League binge in recent weeks and stumbled upon this oldie-but-goodie on a greatest hits compilation. This solo collaboration between frontman Philip Oakey and super-producer Giorgio Moroder was featured on the 1984 soundtrack to the largely forgotten film Electric Dreams (featuring Oscar nominee Virginia Madsen).

Great song, tragic hair.

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
