Heaven 17

Heaven 17 are an English New Wave synthpop band originating from Sheffield in the early 1980s. Originally a trio, the band comprised Martyn Ware (keyboards), Ian Craig Marsh (keyboards) (both previously with The Human League) and Glenn Gregory (vocals). Although most of the band's music was recorded in the 1980s, they have occasionally reformed to record and perform since then, playing their first ever live concerts in 1997. Marsh left the band in 2007 and Ware and Gregory continued to perform as Heaven 17 since then. more »

I'm working every hour
But I'm heading for a crash
I'm sick of living fast 
And running short of cash
Tell me what's so bad about wanting to feel so good
I want a better life
And I'd like to buy one if I could
I've got my key
I've got my key to the world
Liquidity don't bother me
I've got my key to the world
They'll send me all their money
And all I have to do is sign
Living in a big way
A winner all the time
In just five golden hours 
I'd bought myself a car
I sold my soul for charge plate gold 
We know who you are
My key to the world
It's all too easy
Buying items on your wish list
It's easier than you think
But trying to fill the luxury gap
Has pushed me to the brink
To friends I am a legend
The man who had them beat
But to the credit agencies 
I'm Mr. Obsolete, delete!
My key to the world
