A perennial favorite (for some) from Terence Trent D’Arby circa 1987…”Sign Your Name’. Did you know…Following a series of dreams Terence Trent D’Arby legally changed his name to Sananda Maitreya on October 4, 2001. He proclaimed in an interview that “Terence Trent D’Arby was dead.

In December of 1988 the Belgian group Front 242, an EBM/Industrial band, finally got their first club hit with “Headhunter’ which reached #13 on the Billboard Dance/Club Charts.

I would say it’s NSFW due to it’s lyrical content and sexual theme, so save the viewing for a lunch break. It [...]
