    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

                  They're a lot better than Human League or Orchestral Bowel Movements In The Dark.

                      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...
