I feel kind of foolish even posting this question, because I have so few details to share.
Backstory - I am putting together a playlist of songs for an upcoming weekend - all the songs are going to be ones loved by my sister who passed away 5 years ago. The upcoming (September) weekend is the 5-year anniversary of her death and some of her (and my) friends are visiting and I have a set of activities planned that were her favorite things to do. So of course we need a playlist, right?
Any way… my sister went away to college in 1986, and discovered a band that I can’t remember the name of. It would have been a band currently putting out music in 1986, but I don’t know if 1986 was near the beginning, middle or end of their career.
I used the get them mixed up with Alphaville, which annoyed my sister. I am almost 100% sure their name also began with A. They were probably kind of synth-poppy and soft. Maybe some variety of Scandinavian?
If I think of more details I will share them.
Anyone have any ideas? Sigh.
