Retro Saturday: ABC

As you know, my weekly musical flashbacks usually tend towards the more obscure end of things but after watching tonight’s "Pop Britannia" on BBC-2, I leapt off the sofa and exclaimed: "I MUST FEATURE ABC ON RETRO SATURDAY!!!"

"Poison Arrow" is just my most favourite ABC song ever - it tells a story and it’s immaculately produced by the brilliant Trevor Horn who is also one of the best producers of all time. This song is now 26 years old but has never sounded dated to me: it still sounds as fresh as the day I first heard it. Enjoy the mighty Martin Fry and his gold suit at
