The Look of Love: Your views
Simon Le Bon, The Human League and Boy George
Did the show have you reaching for your make-up bag?
ABC's frontman, Martin Fry, returns to his heyday in a new series on Radio 2 which takes a look at the impact of the new romantics in the early 80s.

The radio show aims to be a mixture of music, social comment and reminiscences from some of the era's best-known pop stars.

"It is well researched, and takes you comfortably down memory lane but avoids any sentimentality by focusing as much on the social comment as the music," wrote BBC News Online's Helen Bushby.

But what do you think? Is the 80s ripe for the revival that has been threatening for the past couple of years? Were the new romantics making a subliminal stand against Thatcherism or merely enjoying the hedonistic decadence associated with the era? Was the show well balanced?
