Default Favourite song ever...

...so my avatar has been up for quite a while now.

Anyone know what 12" extended mix this record cover is?

After much internal deliberation it is my favourite song of my whole life. Seriously.

Hint: Early 80's.

The band that did this song evolved out of the death of the leader of it's predecessor band.

It was actually a suicide. And the song itself is, well not a tribute, but a response to his death.

It can very well be argued that this song was the groundbreaker in electrobeat/blitz music.

It still is, I believe, the best-selling 12" dance single of all time.

Googling is allowed.

Death... predecessor ... there's a lotta dying going on there.

Your favourite is a lonnnnnnnnnnng tune, amigo. (hint: that could be a hint)

Shall I divulge, or allow the guessing to continue?

I would have trouble choosing just one for myself, but Boston's Long Time would probably be it.

Cheers!

Gary
