                          # 138 - The Human League - The Lebanon

                          UK # 11, US # 64

                          "The Lebanon" was released as a UK single in April 1984. It failed to replicate the Top 3 success of the band's previous singles "(Keep Feeling) Fascination" and "Mirror Man", only reaching number 11 in the UK Singles chart[8] and number 64 in the Billboard Hot 100, becoming their lowest-charting single ever in the United States.[9] In Israel the track was banned by some radio stations, but it didn't stop it from reaching number 1 in the chart. [10] The track is nearly always played by the band live.

                          # 137 - Depeche Mode - See You

                          UK # 6, DE # 44

                          The video for "See You" was directed by Julien Temple.[9] It was also the first video with Alan Wilder. He can be seen briefly playing the piano and he also appears in several photo booth strips. The first part of the video was filmed at Hounslow railway station in London. At the beginning of the video there is a speakerphone, much like the one on the cover of Music for the Masses, released five years later. The band did not like the video, and it did not show up on the 1985 video compilation Some Great Videos, which included the band's videos up to 1985 except the "A Broken Frame" singles and "Get the Balance Right".

                          Probably not the very best from each act so we are not too tearful about either departure.
