Frankie Says Video Killed the Buggles

Book: Black Swan Green

Author: David Mitchell

Music: Video Killed the Radio Star

Composer/Artist: The Buggles

‘Put the blame on VCR’ … hahaahahahaha! That was very cutting edge in 1980, though. Trevor Horn – who was half of the Buggles (or some fraction, anyway) – was responsible for Frankie Goes to Hollywood and, whatever you feel about The Buggles and this song, the guy responsible for Relax, Two Tribes, The Power of Love, and Welcome to the Pleasuredome deserves some love and respect.
