Sounds right to me. I read a review a long time ago, that said "1979" by the Smashing Pumpkins was a "90s new wave song", which makes sense to me (I liked that one first time I heard it too). :)

Did you ever hear "1984" by Incubus? The song is referencing the book, not the year, but if you listen to it you can notice an '80s synth line. I wonder if they intended it to echo the year 1984.

No, but even though I'm not into them, I should give it a listen ( 8) ). If they did put a synth in there, it probably was for that reason, 'cause in general they seem a very post-grunge "non 80s sounding" band.

Actually, some of Tori Amos' stuff from around 1998 is '90s synthpop...songs like "Spark", "Purple People", "Cruel", "Hotel", "Jackie's Strength."
