Blue Peter: Don't Walk Past (1983)

Not everyone can necessarily name the band, but anyone who was in Canada in the 1980s will recognize the song.

Blue Peter's "Don't Walk Past" was one of Canada's most cutting edge entries into the techno-pop New Wave scene of the mid-80s and had every bit of 80s coolness-meets-snobbiness-meets-quasi-fashion to have passed for European. It could well have made it onto the American Psycho soundtrack.

Anyway, here is the original video for their lasting contribution to the 80s music landscape.

And here they are performing their signature song live in Toronto in May 2008.

The band is still together and still going strong. Check them out if you like at their OFFICIAL WEBSITE.
