Way of Life The Puppets
Oh 1983 I'm always going on and on about 1983. Another fabulous dance track from 1983 was The Way of Life by The Puppets. WAY OF LIFE It has a delicious mixture of electro, new wave and even italo disco. In D.C. it got heavy play on OK100 which was an urban station I was partial to at the time.
Though the band was from Long Island their twelve inch single came out on the seminal Canadian dance label Quality. Shaun Brigton of the new wave band Nervus Rex formed The Puppets and Way of Life hit #3 on the Billboard dance charts. Though a hit single in Canada the band broke up so they could be dumped into that one hit wonder category.
