New release Springtime Cherries
 
We hope to cheer you up with this,
It was a creative remote cooperation we did yesterday. The video was finished right after the premiere of THE MANDALORIAN on German TV.

BTW, it was the 1st day back in Freedom for me after 2 weeks of quarantine

hajak 23 Mar 2020 19:06

Thank you very much for this,sounds great.
I didnt know this demo existed never Heard of it

Mart 23 Mar 2020 20:02

Lyrically brilliant and a great tune.
Where is Alexandria[?]?

Halfnelson 23 Mar 2020 22:18

Thank you very much AV & Tobias! Much appreciated. Very bad omen for Paris though... [wink]

MalilaM 24 Mar 2020 05:57

Thanks for the song and for the video, Tobi!
We miss Martin. <3

Thank you to all the AV team for this gift, we're spoiled with this nice surprise! Made my day [smile]


Springtime Cherries

Walking all alone in a crowded street
People passing by as perfect strangers
Since you have been gone
I learned I never lived until I really nearly died
And now the carnival is over
And I feel just like a man without a name

Like a ship without a fool,
Like a box without a tool
Like a clown without a joke,
Like the night without a cloak
Like a forest without trees,
Like a lover without Paris

Just like Springtime without cherries
I'm sure one day I stop needing you
But I hear you laughter with evey fibre of my soul
You're winding chains of pain around my mind
While I'm going to where no one knows who I am
To places where you never were
And my heart is a lonely hunter
And I feel just like a gun for hire

Like a word without a wing,
Like a ray without a sting
Like a look without an eye,
Like a crook without a lie
Like a piano without keys,
Just like honey without bees

It feels like Springtime without cherries
Yes, there's no denying,
I see you everywhere since this summer of thousand julies
You know, I sent you mails from my extensive travels
Telling you that I'm feeling ok
But there's not enough in this world to impress you
Even if it was for my fucking lies

Like a ship without a fool,
Like a box without a tool
Like a clown without a joke,
Like the night without a cloak
Like a forest without trees,
Like a lover without Paris

Just like springtime without cherries
Just like springtime without cherries
Just like springtime without cherries


Kaz 24 Mar 2020 19:22

Don't know about anywhere else, but cherries come out in summer here.

Halfnelson 24 Mar 2020 19:38

Recolt from end of may to mid-august, so it's ok. Moreover if some comes to fruition at end of may that means there is cherries even before, just not ripe yet.

As Paris is mentioned in the song it makes an adtional pun:
cherries - chérie in french (sweetheart, dear, honey, beloved etc.) [wink]

MalilaM 24 Mar 2020 19:48

Isn't Japan's famous cherry blossom festival some time in April?

Kaz 24 Mar 2020 20:17

Cherry blossom, yes, but not cherries.

jetset 25 Mar 2020 10:39

Wait, cherries grow on cakes, don't they?

humanracer 25 Mar 2020 13:43

Anyone thinks it sounds like Sexyland?

MarianGoldfan123 27 Mar 2020 16:12

Yes, it has Sexyland vibes to it. I absolutely love this song! Will it be for purchase at any point (on the usual digital storefronts)? I'd love to have a FLAC version. Beautiful track. Thanks for this.

hajak 27 Mar 2020 16:20

I think this song is much better than Sexyland,lovely synths.
And Why not release it together with other demos,like a new DS

I think so, too. It has a lot of polish to it considering the fact that it's a demo. It would easily be releasable as it is now. I can only assume this particular mix is the last one they made before they gave up on it. I'm not gonna exaggerate any: I woke up this morning and got a message from another fan of the band and they asked me if I saw this was released a few days ago. I didn't for some reason (Facebook didn't notify me of any posts by either the Alphaville or Marian Gold pages). I listened to it and I immediately loved it :) It made my day. I've had it on loop for a while now.


A new set with unheard demos such as this one would be the best thing ever. As far as I can tell, this song was never mentioned to anybody / on the forums at any point in time. The closest thing we have to it was a supposed song called "The Carnival Is Over", which this song's lyrics talks about. I doubt they have anything in common since this song mentions other AV songs ("A ship without fools" - Ship of Fools) so it's plausible to think that the "carnival" song is it's own thing.

I totally agree with you,I wouldnt mind a demo of Question of happieness
or maybe the lost songs from CROG:
Over the hills and far away
Eternally yours

MarianGoldfan123 27 Mar 2020 16:40

Oh gosh, I agree. I'd love to hear another mix of Criminal Girl, preferably the last one made before the song was scrapped.


I'd happily pay money for high quality versions of these demos. One thing which I wonder more than anything is if an English version of Kalte Asche exists. A track supposedly exists which is called "Cold Ashes" so it's likely. I know the German lyrics were written in 2005 (or I think so)

Criminal girl is great

shapeseven 29 Mar 2020 19:46

You guys better keep looking forward to what we‘re bringing you tomorrow. I am überexcited and anxious awaiting your reactions, so to say :-)

jetset 29 Mar 2020 20:20

In the starting blocks here, we're spoiled, danke!

Mart 29 Mar 2020 20:39

Our nerves are at an end waiting[bigeyes]

Halfnelson 29 Mar 2020 21:48

Does überexcited means doing unspeakable things in a taxi? Anyway, thanks for the warning Toby, waiting anxiously!

It means just being barely able to await a release :-)

hajak 29 Mar 2020 22:10

Thank you very much,really looking forward to tomorrow

MarianGoldfan123 30 Mar 2020 04:17

I have a theory on what it could be, but Marian's past statements about it would contradict / debunk what I think it is :)

shapeseven 30 Mar 2020 07:38

Enjoy the ride.

hajak 30 Mar 2020 08:00

Thank you very much,this one is much better than the version on Strange attractor[smile_big]

When is this version recorded[?]

Halfnelson 30 Mar 2020 12:44

Love it a lot! Thank you very much Marian, Toby, AV.
Thank you Rainer...

jetset 30 Mar 2020 13:28

You've cracked me up on this one, Halfy [laugh]

Mart 30 Mar 2020 14:36

Demo 15!! Can't wait to hear the other Demos[smoke]

MarianGoldfan123 30 Mar 2020 14:51

I really like this version, but I will also say I love what Marian / the band did with it by the time it was released. The final version is a bit better I think :) It doesn't sound right as an upbeat track.



Off topic but you-know-who's been reposting these demos on his channel. Ridiculous...

vafe 31 Mar 2020 11:18

here is a beautiful cover from Michael Carroll:

MarianGoldfan123 22 Feb 2021 13:03

I hope that someday this track gets released officially in some form. I would love to buy a digital version... Ideally lossless. Not sure if Marian stores all of these demos as WAVs (if the Moonbase releases are anything to go by, he stores them as 128kbps mp3 files and probably keeps the project files if he needs to re-visit / export them at a higher quality).

This is easily my favorite release. I fell in love with it the second I heard it.
