Eyewear's Top Songs of 2012: #23 'I Owe You This' by Chad Valley
Here comes some more 80s pastiche/ homage. No one came closer to classic '82 new wave in 2012, than Chad Valley, with Twin Shadow, another 80s guy, whose song 'I Owe You This', when not sounding like 'Nocturne' sounded exactly like Tears For Fears. No, I mean, totally. I was in heaven when I heard this. It really was the year that The Hurting came back to haunt us all.
