Cherry blossom, yes, but not cherries.


Before you judge me, make sure you're perfect.

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.

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.

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)
