Korona Song Series - Chapter 17

Dear Friends,
now with the beginning of 2021 many challenges and projects are laying in front of Alphaville. Since the pandemic is still around, we will also carry on with our Corona series. But in the light of all these additional activities, a fixed monthly sequence of new Monday surprises can no longer be guaranteed. Rest assured that we will do our best to continue in entertaining you all through these confused times. Stay tuned and rely on Alphaville's slogan since long ago:
"DELIGHT IS OUR PROFESSION!"
So next Monday's Corona Song No.17 will be an astounding travel in time concerning both sound and image. It will consist out of multiple glittering edits deriving from different stages of its production. I myself was quite astonished that our plan in the end worked out since we are talking here of a typical Alphaville production, meaning, that the song in this new format with all its different elements comprises an impressive time frame of about two years. So due to that you will experience its creation from first raw stages up to much later incarnations in one big, harmonious arrangement, embraced by Mr. Rain's incredible visual artwork. I hope you will like the result as much as we do over here in Alphaville. And to those who are interested in solving the riddle which song No. 17 might be, I recommend to have a closer look at the image belonging to this announcement.
Love and peace and stay alive!
Marian Gold

'And to those who are interested in solving the riddle which song No. 17 might be (...)' . I hardly can see who Marian is referring to
Ok, here is my twisted guess: Marionettes With Halo, in reference to the man with attached strings to his arms and legs.

1) A3
could refer to (LP/MC):
Big In Japan (FY, TSC, FP), Jerusalem (AIU), She Fades Away (TBB), The Mysteries Of Love (FH), Heart Of The Flower (SLC), Big Yellow Sun (H), Beethoven (P), Guardian Angel (S), End Of The World (CROG), House Of Ghosts (SA) and maybe Middle Of The Riddle (if Laserdic qualify).

Or more simply to 3rd Album in whole.

2) 'Rule' appears in:
Life On Mars, Fantastic Dream, Ariana, Middle Of The Riddle.

3) 'Big' appears in:
too many songs... and in the title of two already mentioned.

4) the drawning:
no better idea than jetset's one.

5) the door:
... have a 'Prostitute' vibes. 'Ivory Tower' is the (rule) 42nd album song. 'Fools' also come to mind...

I'd like 'Ivory Tower' or 'Middle of the Riddle' but I won't bet a single penny! I just hope not another 'Big in Japan'.

Te raconter enfin qu'il faut aimer la vie et l'aimer même si je suis fatigué du mensonge et de la vérité que je croyais si belle, que je voulais aimer et qui est si cruelle que je m'y suis brulé ... .

Cheers Halfy!
I had never really paid attention to the lyrics in details, and found out I had many parts wrong for all these years 😂
I enjoyed the song as much as the video, great artwork as always :)

Thank you so much ! That one was a fun ride. Not easy at all, but in the end I was impressed by the impact.
