Soft Cell - A Man Can Get Lost


On this date in 1981, Soft Cell released their debut single, "A Man Can Get Lost". It was backed by "Memorabilia". They also issued a 12-inch at the same time with "Memorabiliaa" as the A side and a different song, "Persuasion" as the B side. The singles did not chart. Both "Memorabilia" and "A Man Can Get Lost" would appear in remixed form on their second album, Non-Stop Ecstatic Dancing, when it was released in 1982. Only there was a twist. The latter's song title changed to "A Man Could Get Lost" when on the album. The Leeds, England new wave band disbanded in 1984 but has gotten together again in recent years.
