"Pop Muzik" by M

The mystery is not why "Pop Muzik" became one of the first so-called "new wave" records to top the American singles chart. It's an insanely catchy, fun song. Seriously, I have a friend who still has "Wanna be a gunslinger/Don't be a rock singer" stuck in his head to this day after I turned him on to the tune.

No, the real mystery is why it took me until the late 90's/early 00's (wow, that was weird to type) to discover "Pop Muzik". To this day, I rarely hear it on the radio, despite listening to stations geared to this very kind of music. What's the deal, radio programmers? Why have you made "Pop Muzik" so obscure?
