Modern English

Modern English are best known for the 1982 single “I Melt With You,” which kids these days often mistakenly think is by The Cure or Taco Bell’s marketing department. It turns out they’ve made a few other songs in their 30-year career, including an entire album’s worth released this past May. There are no head-bopping jangle ditties to be found on Soundtrack and no cheesy beefy melts at the Triple Door but instead a deep, dramatic selection that’s much more mature than any of us were in the 80s.
