Modern English original I Melt With You North American Tour Pin - $15 (Independence, MO)

condition: new
size / dimensions: 1 1/2"
This is an original vintage "Modern English Spoken Here" promotional pin, button or badge from their Tour of North America. What started with airplay of the English import at one American Radio Station and then passed to another and another and another exploded into a huge hit. Playing to crowds of 100 to 200 'art' students back home and all of a sudden Modern English was playing 'I Melt With You' to crowds of 5,000 American kids who sang the lyrics of their song as they played it. It was life changing. The song has endured. Modern English might be the definition of the 'Modern One Hit Wonder', but oh what a hit it was.

It measures about 1 1/2" in diameter. This is brand new, never used. The edge shows a 1983 manufacturing date in the USA For promotional use only. These pins are rather rare.
