Well, do not have much information on it:
1. Sounded like Buggles
2. They sing something like "counting by numbers" very prominent in the song...

Maybe someone can help?
thx

Perhaps it was "Living by Numbers" by New Musik? Here are the lyrics:

Living by numbers
Adding to history
Living by numbers
I guess what's always meant to be

Refrain: Living by numbers, Living by numbers now

We've been living a long time
Counted out in the rows of files
Such a digital lifetime
It's been by numbers all the while

(Refrain)

You count the days but
Does it all add up to you?
Does it all add up to you?
While we're living by numbers
Living by numbers now

So you're living by numbers
And numbers you answer to
You can count down with numbers
You bet that someone's counting you

(Refrain)
(Repeat)

They don't want your name . . . (this part is spoken)
Just your number
(Repeat)

James,

you are a star.....this is exactly the song I was looking for....also, did not know that "This world of water" was from them too, both remind me of my youth.

Thank you very much for your help.
Regards,
Kalle

Wow! I finally got one before someone else! I'm glad I could help.

I never heard this song until a few years ago. I only had New Musik's "Sanctuary" album, and this wasn't on it. I heard "They All Ran After the Carving Knife" and "Straight Lines" on the radio, but my favorite song on the album was "Back to Room One."
