Catch Me I'm Falling by Real Life

Sticking with the Australians for a moment, Melbourne's Real Life had a completely unfair run of close brushes with success. While their 1983 debut album led off with minor hits "Send Me An Angel" and "Catch Me I'm Falling", it wasn't until "Angel" was re-released in 1989 that they really caught on in a major way with American audiences in particular. I'll no doubt refer to Real Life again, because I'm a big fan, but for now just let me point out that I've always kinda liked "Catch Me I'm Falling" a bit better than "Send Me An Angel." Of course, "Angel" is more overtly synthpop in sound; "Catch Me" has plenty of synths, but plenty of other instrumentation too.
