The period saw a number of one hit wonders.
Synthpop is a subgenre of pop and electronic music in which the synthesizer is the dominant musical instrument. It originated during the New Wave era of the late 1970s and to mid-1980s, and it has continued to exist and develop ever since.

The movement was associated with bands such as Visage, Adam and the Ants, Ultravox, Spandau Ballet, Brian Eno and Roxy Music.Other key artists from the early-mid 1980s include Eurythmics, Talk Talk, A Flock of Seagulls, Tears for Fears, Pet Shop Boys, Devo, OMD, Japan, Thomas Dolby, Alphaville, Thompson Twins, Bronski Beat, Heaven 17, Howard Jones, Blancmange,Paul Haig, Norman Iceberg, Animotion, Propaganda, Modern Talking, Missing Persons, Real Life and The System.
