The Fixx – “Red Skies” (1982)
One of the clearest and most memorable nuclear songs from the early ’80s, the Fixx’s “Red Skies” mostly relies on the repetition of the line “Red skies at night” to depict nuclear holocaust. It’s a great, moody example of the era, its synth line both infectious and squirmy, capturing the anxiety in the culture.
