You Better Recognize: The Lexicon Of Love.

It was on this day in 1982 that a Waist High favorite, ABC's The Lexicon Of Love, went to #1 in the U.K.

The Lexicon of Love was produced by Trevor Horn and features orchestration by Art of Noise member Anne Dudley. "Tears Are Not Enough," "All of My Heart," "Poison Arrow," and "The Look Of Love (Part One)" were all Top 40 hits in the UK; the last two also charted in the U.S. In 2005, a deluxe 2-disc reissue was released on the Neutron label.

The Lexicon of Love not only established singer Martin Fry and guitarist Mark White as two of the decade's smartest and most skillful cross-breeders of Motownish dance grooves, but cemented ex-Buggle Trevor Horn's status as the era's defining producer.

In 1998 Q magazine readers voted The Lexicon of Love the 92nd greatest album of all time; "The Lexicon of Love stands as a landmark album in British pop."
