Seven said that the order of the songs in the video is:

Mafia Island
Enigma
House of Ghosts
Heartbreak city
Rendezvous
Mafia Island again

Some Words from Mafia Islands text can be Heard in that vocal part
Here is the text to Mafia Island so you can compare yourself:

MAFIA ISLAND (Gold)
(Chephren’s Barge/Kathrin’s Barge)
Yes, we sailed over the storm whipped, jade-green sea
On Chephren’s barge to Mafia island
We broke coral and drank whiskey in the glowing heat
And the sunsail slattered in the wind like beserk machine guns
And the girls from the bar, they were bathing at the beach
And they sang in a melancholic voice soft words that were caught
Between the sound of the waves and they sang in a melancholic voice
We’re stuck here for good, the radio had broken off
Just a few days ago
The ether swelled as the earth ran dry
Nothing moved in the flickering ardour
And the girls from the bar, they were bathing at the beach
And they sang in a melancholic voice soft words that were caught
Between the sound of the waves
Yes, they sang in a melancholic voice…

Hope that helped

Hi Hajak,

Thanks. Youre right. The lines "And they sang in a melancholic voice soft words that were caught
Between the sound of the waves and they sang in a melancholic voice" are sung at 3:40. Strange thing is that in the live versions on youtube, these lines are missing. At least I did not find this part in the song.....

As was posted earlier in this tread:

Here’s the preliminary track list for STRANGE ATTRACTOR (still subject to change in terms of order and songs included):Source alphavillenow.com
Mafia Island
Heartbreak City
Rendezvoyeur
Sexyland
Fever
Makebelieve
The Wine Of Astonishment
Enigma
Rendezvous
Nevermore
House Of Ghosts
Giants
Around The Universe
Marionettes With Halos
Beyond The Laughing Sky
A Handful Of Darkness


Marian said on the chat that it will be 13 songs on the album and that
Rendezvous and The Wine of Astonishment is not on the album.
So one more of these 16 song is not on the album, the question is which???

My guess will be Fever(but I dont know)

Doomed variety acts…

I'm not sure, but isn't Beyond the Laughing Sky a new version of an older song? I mean, does anyone know if some of those songs are remakes?

None of them seem to be remakes, and Marian has told us they all are new songs. You can take a look at the magazine Alphaville Now; Tobi has published a lot of information there about the new material and other stuff. :)

It is assumed that the song "Beyond laughing in the sky" is the evolution of the song "My very blood". All others are new songs.

I see "Giants" on the list, so wouldn't that count as a remake, since they also did that one on Crazyshow?

If so, I think I see one there that won't make the list for SA.


Hello, my friend...
