World's Worst iPod: Spandau Ballet "True"

Spandau Ballet only made it up to #4 in the United States with their 1983 song "True," but it was even a bigger hit in England.

It seems a lot of Triple M listeners liked this song because it was in the movie "Sixteen Candles," while others thought it was just a little too slow and drippy.

Here are "the Spans" on the British TV show "Top of the Pops."  Enjoy. Or don't.
