Ultravox - Vienna Top Of The Pops (1981) (HD)

One of the best Ultravox tracks ever in my opinion, it's "Vienna" on Top Of The Pops from 1981.Not sure about the hat though... :-)

Extended and re-edited to the full length audio track as they missed out almost the first 30 seconds of it...


"Vienna" is a song by the British new wave band Ultravox. It was the third single and the title track from the band's fourth album.

The single was released on Chrysalis Records on 15 January 1981, and is notable for spending 4 consecutive weeks at #2 in the UK singles chart without ever getting to #1. "Vienna" was kept off the UK #1 slot by John Lennon's "Woman" for a week, and then by Joe Dolce's novelty hit, "Shaddap You Face", for a further 3 weeks, although "Vienna" did sell more copies than either of these records and ranked as the 5th best selling UK single for 1981.

It also won "Single of the Year" at the 1981 Brit Awards. To date, it remains Ultravox's signature song, being their most commercially successful release and is often played live by Midge Ure in solo performances, as well as being voted Britain's favourite single to ever peak at number two in the charts in a 2012 poll run by BBC Radio 2 and the Official Charts Company. It was awarded an honorary number one by the OCC.

Ure said of the track: "We wanted to take the song and make it incredibly pompous in the middle, leaving it very sparse before and after, but finishing with a typically over-the top classical ending."
