This genre was very influential during TheEighties (although it's OlderThanTheyThink; the very first synth album[[note]]as far as anyone knows[[/note]], ''The In Sound From Way Out!'' by Jean-Jacques Perrey and Gershon Kingsley, was an example of Synth Pop '''''in 1966''''', nearly 20 years before the genre became popular[[note]]in part because the 1966 Moog catalogue didn't include any keyboard module, so the two Perrey/Kingsley albums had to be painstakingly recorded one note at a time[[/note]]). The Tornados' 1962 hit "Telstar" is also pointed to as an UrExample[[note]]although their instrument was a clavioline, not a synthesiser as such[[/note]]. Whilst many eighties pop bands were not ''predominantly'' electronic, they were usually ''significantly'' electronic and made generous use of of their synthesizers and drum machines.
