If there ever was an electronic hit that personified the 80’s, Mr Vain would be one of the most iconic of those. Even though it was actually released in 1993, it topped charts across Europe and got at least a Gold certification for sales in nine countries, including the USA, UK and Australia. The backing electronic beat with synths layered throughout isn’t the focal point of the song – all it does is provide the goods to dance to. The vocals instead are what made the song so famous, being easy to sing along to and catchy at the same time. Chances are you’ll have heard this before, and that just goes to show how much of an impact it had in terms of the 80’s influences in electronic music.
