The Second Only Makes You Wonder

In 1985 the German group Propaganda released two classic singles. Both were featured on their second album A Secret Wish. Propaganda were fantastic synth pop. They were on the famous ZTT label and produced by the genius Trevor Horn. Singer Claudia Brucken was fabulous then and still is today. Their first great single was Dr Mabuse which got to number 27 in the UK charts and was a top ten hit in Germany. The second song by them is song number 23 of my 40. This is Propaganda and Duel.
Sophie Ellis Bextor did a Sophie Ellis Bextor type cover of the song many moons later. Here's her version.
