#AtoZ 1981 Songs to Remember – “V” is for “Vienna”

I chose 1981 music as my theme this year. My newest novel The Summer of Princess Diana is set in the summer of 1981, and oh! the music! Let’s take a look back at a pivotal time in the music industry.

Released on January 9, 1981 by the British band Ultravox, “Vienna” is symbolic of the new wave music that defined the early 1980s. It was the most commercially successful song for Ultravox, but did much better in Europe than in the States.

The video, seen below, was shot on locations in London and Vienna.
