For me songs like, 'Army Dreamers' by Kate Bush, 'Shock the Monkey', and 'Sledgehammer' by Peter Gabriel, are stand-out tracks.
It's difficult to find many hits from the mid to late 80's that don't feature the C.M.I. which is an incredible achievement for any musical instrument manufacturer!!!
Even tracks that don't feature a C.M.I, You can see that the producers have tried to engineer in the 'Sound of the C.M.I'.
Other outstanding artists have all used the C.M.I to great effect, ie: Thomas Dolby, 'M', F.G.T.H, Tears for Fears, The Thompson Twins, Landscape....('Einstein A Go-Go'.....what a fantastic example of '80's synth pop!!), Jan Hammer, Jean-Michel Jarre, ABC, Hall & Oates, Supertramp, Jon Astley, Michael Jackson, Yes, Trevor Horn (Art of Noise), Geoff Downes, Stevie Wonder, Vince Clarke (Yazoo), Sir Paul McCartney, Devo, Julian Lennon, The Cars, Yellow, Lindsey Buckingham, Herbie Hancock, David Gilmour, Elvis Costello, Scritti Politti, Starship, Teddy Riley, Brian Wilson, Foreigner, Madonna, Eurythmics, Mike Oldfield, Prince, OMD, Steve Winwood, Duran Duran, John Paul Jones, Paul Hardcastle, Queen, Keith Emerson, Alan Parsons, Fleetwood Mac, B-52's, Pet Shop Boys and Stewart Copeland.
and last but by no means least, Rick Wright of Pink Floyd, (R.I.P....I had the pleasure of meeting Rick many moons ago.....he was one of the kindest, gentlest, and talented people I have ever met....he will be sadly missed, I still can't believe he is no longer with us).
