    Definitely disagree with his #1 choice. I'll never like anything about that fucking song

    Even he said "Rock It" was better. And it is. At least he went with "Jump" and not any of the Van Hagar synth ballads.

    That guy is a dick.

    No Thomas Dolby, Human League, New Order, Depeche Mode, or Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark riffs?

    Granted, synth pop was mainly a limey invention. Here's the most annoying synth riff ever



    How could anyone overlook it?

    This one is just cool




    And, of course:



    Yeah, that guy is total dick

    I've watched a lot of the Doctor Mix videos. I was going to start a new thread/game, "Gay, Or European?" and Doctor Mix would be the first cuntestant.

    I think he's more into R&B and that Italdisco shit.

    How did Gary Numan not make his list, for that matter? Even Reznor loved that shit...

    I probably would have thrown in some early Ministry too... even though Al Jourgensen claims to hate the record now....

    That makes sense. The dude seems to be completely clueless. Synth was a popularized early 80's thing to me

    Saw Howard Jones and Midge Ure a month ago. Plenty of synth riffage.

    Howard Jones should probably make at least a Top 25 synth riff list, if not the Top 10...

    Saga - On the Loose
    Any Cars?
    Journey
    Night Ranger
    Styx
    Genesis - ABACAB?
    Gary Wright
    Gary Numan
    The Fixx
    ATF - Der Kommissr

    Or "Chase" from the soundtrack of Midnight Run, used by Art Bell as his theme for Coast-to-Coast AM...



    Daft Punk?"

    It was. Huey and guitarist Chris Hayes along with their manager filed a lawsuit on behalf of Chrysalis Records. Like in most of these cases, they signed a NDA and settled out of court with Ray Parker Jr and Sony Pictures. No one knows what the actual monetary settlement was. Parker to this day is still credited with writing the song.

    A George Harrison "My Sweet Lord' moment, indeed.
