Japan - Adolescent Sex (album version)

Apparently they re-recorded this for the 45, but I prefer this version, in part because the entrance of the synth line is delayed until about one minute in, and comes as a surprise.

Speaking of, I'm obsessed with the eerily charismatic boredom of keyboard player Richard Barbieri in this video (see 0:57 and following). It's like it's too unspeakably tedious for him to even play those four chords.

Excited to see a post on Japan. And what a sleeve photo.
