Animotion

Riding the wave of MTV-friendly synth pop of the mid-'80s, Animotion took the coldly catchy "Obsession" to the Top Ten in the beginning of 1985. After that, success was elusive -- the follow-up, "Let Him Go," barely cracked the Top 40 just four months later. In 1988, over half of the band left the lineup, including the leaders Bill Wadhams and Astrid Plane; actress Cynthia Rhodes and former Device member Paul Engemann became the lead vocalists. (Fortunately, the personnel changes apparently didn't cause any animosity -- Plane married Charles Ottavio, Animotion's bassist and one of the founding members of the group.) The new lineup was lucky enough to score a Top Ten hit with "Room to Move," a lightweight song from a Dan Aykroyd movie that was even more lightweight (My Stepmother Is an Alien). After that brief flash of success, Animotion disappeared from the picture. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

The video for obsession was great.
Favorite song from Grand Theft Auto Vice City
this was the 1st theme song for Saturday Night's Main Event.
I love the music of the 80's but don't want to relive it...
Great new wave song from the 80's. Thumbs up. However, I'm trying to build a Country channel. Why did this song show up after Johnny Horton and Alabama?
Hey Pandora, "room to move", isn't from "My Stepmother Is An Alien", it's from "Manniquin"!

What movie was this song the soundtrack for? Something about a male stripper and A Night... something.
80's were the best time to grow up. Best clothes, toys, cartoons, music!
GREAT SONG!!
How, EXACTLY, does a one-and-a-ha l f hit wonder get a best of album?

I am Obsessed with the 80's I sure do miss them and the music. The music had meaning and the videos were worth watching. *Wish I Had A Time Machine* I wouldn't hesitate to go back and live in the 80's again!!
I was born in 86 and of course am hearing this for the first time due to pandora! I love this song so much and just youtubed the video. Very low budget but great vid.
LOVE this song!!! One of the best in the 80's...when they had the best music and MTV actually played videos! Miss those days....
hard to believe this group was a one hit wonder
Yeah! This is music, when all was hastle free. No one messed with you!!
love stuff like this just bust in and throw down a song and then peace out you just dont get stuff like this now. hell mtv did play videos i saw them....we must preserve us now...those who have seen a video on mtv...that way we can tell the future what it was like way back when. not scripted fake reality shows. stick to your roots kiddies
