Ghosts

One of the most beautiful singles of all time - and one of the most beautiful covers as well. Japan's Ghost was a surprise UK top 10 in the early eighties, and marked the swan song of the band. It made way for a solo career of lead singer David Sylvian, who also takes the lime light on the cover art for the single, as well as for the corresponding album Tin drum, which featured earlier in the beautiful album covers series.
