I love most everything synth-based, especially Synthpop, Futurepop, EBM, Industrial, Industrial Dance, Synthwave, Darkwave, etc. Hell, I even like some synth-based New Age music (in other words, not Yanni). But you know what I really like? Those genres with women vocalists! So it’s music time with women vocalists (and musicians) in the Synthpop, Futurepop, EMB, Industrial, and Darkwave world! I didn’t realize there were so many until I actually started thinking about it. There are so many I’ve had to break this up! So here is Volume 7: U – Z.

Go and join the army
Said the father to the son
See the world around you boy
And learn to use a gun
Think you’re something special
Well, we’ll make you just the same
There’s nothing wrong in dying
After all, it’s just a game
Just a game.

Read the morning paper
There’s a picture of a cross
“We were proud in them days”
By the way, I think you lost
Trust me when I tell you boy
That God is on our side
Even Jesus cheers us on
Against the other side
Against the other side.

He who shouts the loudest
Is the on who’s in control
We who never listen
Are the one’s who pay the toll
Tell us that it’s time at last
To make a final stand
I’m glad ‘cos all I wanted
Was to kill another man
Just to kill another man.
