While Sparks’ No. 1 in Heaven was totally Moroder-driven, on 1980’s Terminal Jive Moroder stepped back a bit and Harold Faltermeyer was clearly in charge. You can hear it too: No. 1 is disco and Terminal Jive is a new wave affair.

Anyway, this is a great jam, but it’s only my second favorite about the pleasures of Humberthumbertism. As usual, Ray Davies defeats all comers.
