Rated: E · Book · Music · #2247218
From 1969 to 2019, here’s my personal picks for the best synthpop songs of all time.
Since the 1960’s, synthesizers have become more and more prominent in the world of music. In the 1970’s artists such as Kraftwerk, Giorgio Moroder, and Jean-Michel Jarre began crafting songs entirely using synthesizers, and thus the synth-pop genre was born.

From its boom in the 1980’s to its decline in the 90’s to its revival in the 2010’s, synth-pop has evolved and changed, intersecting with other genres and branching out into new subgenres along the way. Because of this, synth-pop is a diverse and eclectic genre, containing a diversity of styles ranging from the toe-tapping dance hits of Eurythmics and Yaz to the moody ballads of Ultravox and Soft Cell.

This book contains my (admittedly amateur) picks for the 100 greatest synth-pop songs, listed in chronological order from 1969 to 2019.
