(01/22/2023 21:06:38, room alphaville) MalilaM (to Bernd): It's great to stay up to date with your work!
(01/22/2023 21:07:20, room alphaville) Denis_MM: Thanks!
(01/22/2023 21:07:21, room alphaville Bernd (to MalilaM): Thank you, Malila!
(01/22/2023 21:07:21, room alphaville) MalilaM (to wii): It was a great idea. This chat always brings up great memories. ;D
(01/22/2023 21:07:42, room alphaville) wii: Yeah, this chatroom must be about 20 years old now 8)
(01/22/2023 21:07:45, room alphaville) Krapplund (to MalilaM): Halleluja....yes!
(01/22/2023 21:08:18, room alphaville) Mumu: The chat has been out of order sometimes. Happy to see it back.
(01/22/2023 21:08:45, room alphaville) wii (to Mumu): I know, sorry about that
(01/22/2023 21:08:48, room alphaville Bernd (to wii): at least 20 years. I remember chatting her about me leaving alphaville...and that's more than 20 years ago...
(01/22/2023 21:08:55, room alphaville) Anke: :o
(01/22/2023 21:09:01, room alphaville) Mumu: And even more happy to see so many people.
(01/22/2023 21:09:10, room alphaville) wii (to Bernd): yeah, I remember
(01/22/2023 21:09:18, room alphaville) Guest785: hello i am orlando
(01/22/2023 21:09:22, room alphaville) Krapplund (to Bernd): "Alphaville ohne Bernhard ist wie eine Apfelstrudel ohne apfel" 17'04'2003
(01/22/2023 21:09:35, room alphaville) Krapplund (to Bernd): ;)
(01/22/2023 21:09:39, room alphaville) Mumu (to wii): FB take too much place.
(01/22/2023 21:10:01, room alphaville) wii (to Bernd): first question for you, when is the 2nd Atlantic Popes album ready for release?
(01/22/2023 21:10:06, room alphaville) alphaandre (to Bernd): yes must be in 2001 or 2002, i can remember too, where is the time
(01/22/2023 21:10:38, room alphaville) MalilaM (to wii): Yeah, it's great that you have been keeping the Dreamroom for such a long time. :kiss
(01/22/2023 21:10:43, room alphaville Bernd (to Krapplund): YEAH! I remember that phrase very well. Every time I eat Apfelstrudel (like yesterday) I must think of you!
(01/22/2023 21:10:44, room alphaville) Krapplund (to alphaandre): it was 2003
(01/22/2023 21:11:02, room alphaville) Krapplund (to Bernd): muahahaha sorry
(01/22/2023 21:11:11, room alphaville) Guest167: Hello. Clare from uk here
(01/22/2023 21:11:12, room alphaville) Mumu (to MalilaM): Our family is always here, waiting for us.
(01/22/2023 21:11:18, room alphaville) Guest785: orlando of alphaville future power
(01/22/2023 21:11:32, room alphaville Bernd (to wii): Oh...The worst question right at the beginning
(01/22/2023 21:11:38, room alphaville) MalilaM (to Bernd): There are a lot of Atlantic Popes released by now. Any plans to putting them together in a CD some time soon? ;D
(01/22/2023 21:11:39, room alphaville) Krapplund (to Guest167): Welcome!
(01/22/2023 21:11:51, room alphaville) wii (to Bernd): O:-)
(01/22/2023 21:11:59, room alphaville) Mumu (to Guest167): Hello Clare ;)
(01/22/2023 21:12:28, room alphaville) Nightangel: Yes, I haven't seen this type of chatroom for 20 years. Hi, everyone. I'm just amazed that there is still such a chat
(01/22/2023 21:12:43, room alphaville) Philipp: 20 years old... And I'm now just 27 years old... :-O
(01/22/2023 21:13:03, room alphaville) MalilaM (to CB_Fort_Will): :-]
(01/22/2023 21:13:11, room alphaville) Guest785: great song hold on
(01/22/2023 21:13:20, room alphaville) wii (to Nightangel): I know, we like nostalgia around here
(01/22/2023 21:13:37, room alphaville Bernd (to wii): We are working on it.... and you know that most of the songs is already done. Releasing an album these days works differently... at least Max and me decided to go the "modern" way... Streaming, streaming streaming....single songs, single songs single
(01/22/2023 21:13:51, room alphaville Bernd: Eher will be a 2nd album soon...
(01/22/2023 21:14:29, room alphaville) MalilaM (to Mumu): Indeed. This place will always feel like home for me. ;)
(01/22/2023 21:14:32, room alphaville) wii (to Bernd): can't wait, the songs are great so far, excellent productions, as always
(01/22/2023 21:15:09, room alphaville) Nightangel (to wii): thats nice
(01/22/2023 21:15:18, room alphaville Bernd (to MalilaM): Yes. The plan is there. There will be a Cd and Vinyl. That´s the plan
(01/22/2023 21:15:18, room alphaville) Anke: My favourite is the Happy Waiter, would love to have a loooong version of that one.... any plans to extend it, Bernd?
(01/22/2023 21:15:19, room alphaville) Mumu (to MalilaM): Even when we are away for a long time, we don't forget it, and are happy to go back.
(01/22/2023 21:15:58, room alphaville) MalilaM (to Bernd): It was a really good idea. That way we don't have to wait too long for the next release. I'm still old fashioned though and I like the CDs ;D
(01/22/2023 21:16:07, room alphaville) Mumu (to Bernd): Good new. The songs are so great.
(01/22/2023 21:16:20, room alphaville) alphaandre (to Bernd): i think it´s difficult and a financial question, most reallistic i think is a limited edtion of CD and Vinyl sold via Internet
(01/22/2023 21:16:23, room alphaville) jetset: Good evening to all 🙂
(01/22/2023 21:16:35, room alphaville) MalilaM (to Mumu): :kiss
(01/22/2023 21:16:40, room alphaville) Mumu (to jetset): Hello
(01/22/2023 21:16:53, room alphaville) Krapplund (to Patten74): Welcome!
(01/22/2023 21:17:05, room alphaville) Anke: Hello
(01/22/2023 21:17:25, room alphaville Bernd (to wii): Nostalgia is ok. When you are 62, there is no way ou oof nostalgia. But I am definitely living in the presence. Not in the past. But I am also not denying the past at all.
(01/22/2023 21:17:30, room alphaville) Guest785: power music 2001 forever pop!
(01/22/2023 21:17:31, room alphaville) MalilaM (to jetset, Karen_Cojo): :-]
(01/22/2023 21:17:56, room alphaville) Krapplund (to jetset): Welcome!
(01/22/2023 21:18:02, room alphaville) Mumu (to Karen_Cojo): Hello :)
(01/22/2023 21:18:33, room alphaville) wii (to Bernd): about music, I definately live in the past, I listen to mostly older music, to be honest
(01/22/2023 21:18:49, room alphaville) Karen_Cojo: Evening all
(01/22/2023 21:18:57, room alphaville) Krapplund (to Karen_Cojo): hello!
(01/22/2023 21:19:23, room alphaville) Karen_Cojo: New name. It's been ages!
(01/22/2023 21:19:25, room alphaville) Mumu (to Bernd): I'm a funny bird. I'm fond of older music, but also enjoy new ones.
(01/22/2023 21:19:35, room alphaville Bernd (to Anke): Hmm...Happy Waiter? I guess there are no plans for a longer version, it even won't be on the album I guess.. We didn't took it serious... was a fun thing. But you are not the only one who likes it
(01/22/2023 21:19:48, room alphaville) Attractor: Hello Bernd, can you tell us, be will remastered editions of Prostitute and Salvation in this year? Or in the future?
(01/22/2023 21:20:09, room alphaville) wii (to Attractor): excellent question
(01/22/2023 21:20:20, room alphaville) Guest785: sounds like a melody 2020 remastered
(01/22/2023 21:20:22, room alphaville Bernd (to alphaandre): Yes. It will be a limited edition for sure.
(01/22/2023 21:20:30, room alphaville) Krapplund (to Attractor): 8)
(01/22/2023 21:20:59, room alphaville Bernd: You'll have to excuse me if I take a little longer with the answers, my typing hasn't really evolved in the last few years. That annoys me most myself.
(01/22/2023 21:21:03, room alphaville) alphaandre (to Bernd): since AV is in the media again with Eternally Yours...there was an article at T-Online "Wie realistisch ist eine Reunion" can you imagine to be official a member of alphaville again ?
(01/22/2023 21:21:25, room alphaville) Nightangel (to Bernd): limeted means?
(01/22/2023 21:21:29, room alphaville) Anke: ohhhh.... I can feel and hear the fun you had! :)
(01/22/2023 21:21:32, room alphaville) wii (to Bernd): no worries, take you time :)
(01/22/2023 21:21:46, room alphaville) Krapplund (to alphaandre): 8)
(01/22/2023 21:22:06, room alphaville) follow_me: Hello everyone 🙃 Hello Bernd😊
(01/22/2023 21:22:07, room alphaville) Guest785: a victory love 1992 in harvest.
(01/22/2023 21:22:30, room alphaville) jetset (to Bernd): Do you have a release date in mind for the second album or just take your the time to decide the right time, freely?
(01/22/2023 21:22:40, room alphaville Bernd (to wii): I admit, that I also like the older stuff more, than most of what I hear since 20 years... It's a question of taste. But there are always some great new songs coming out.
(01/22/2023 21:23:55, room alphaville) ChristianeMM (to Bernd): Listening to some Atlantic pope songs (and "comparing" them with some Alphaville classics... :) ...), I'd like to ask if you feel more connected to the "Dark wave / Gothic" scene, or still to "pop" music.
(01/22/2023 21:25:07, room alphaville) ChristianeMM (to Bernd): *popes of course... sorry for the typo. :)
(01/22/2023 21:25:25, room alphaville Bernd (to Attractor): YES. I think I can say that and I can promise that there will be remastered re-issues of Prostete and Salvation.I just started to collect all the old tapes and this chat is in-between transferring all kinds of versions of "Flame" to my computer
(01/22/2023 21:26:30, room alphaville) Philipp (to Bernd): Very nice!
(01/22/2023 21:26:46, room alphaville) Attractor: Thanks, it will wonderful!
(01/22/2023 21:26:59, room alphaville) Krapplund (to Bernd): what to say? PURE LOVE!
(01/22/2023 21:26:59, room alphaville Bernd (to Nightangel): It means, that we will print a few hundred ...and not more.
(01/22/2023 21:26:59, room alphaville) orlando: bethoven 1994
(01/22/2023 21:27:07, room alphaville) wii (to Bernd): sounds fantastic, can't wait, those albums have a special place for me.
(01/22/2023 21:27:26, room alphaville) MalilaM (to Bernd): Cool!
(01/22/2023 21:27:33, room alphaville) Anke: Sounds great
(01/22/2023 21:28:00, room alphaville) follow_me: Great news
(01/22/2023 21:28:03, room alphaville) wii (to Bernd): so, you still have access to all the old original master tapes?
(01/22/2023 21:28:08, room alphaville) follow_me: Great news
(01/22/2023 21:28:10, room alphaville) Anke: ;D ;D
(01/22/2023 21:28:32, room alphaville) orlando: inside out 1997
(01/22/2023 21:28:36, room alphaville) Nightangel: ah ok
(01/22/2023 21:29:12, room alphaville) Krapplund: Shit...have to listen to Salvation at once
(01/22/2023 21:29:13, room alphaville) Moonbo (to Bernd): + hopefully Salvation & Prostitute on Vinyl ;D
(01/22/2023 21:29:22, room alphaville) alphaandre (to Bernd): that´s so great to hear, i think you know it over the years...these two albums for me are best AV Albums ever...Flame, there are much great versions..although soul messiah...wishful thinking.... i´m really happy to hear it :) :)
(01/22/2023 21:29:33, room alphaville) orlando: monkey in the moon dreamscapes 1998.
(01/22/2023 21:30:09, room alphaville) wii: I really would like to see Dreamscapes on streaming services.
(01/22/2023 21:30:59, room alphaville) Anke: oh yes, dreamscapes should be on streaming as well as Crazy show
(01/22/2023 21:31:05, room alphaville) Mumu: Yes, it would be great to have Dreamscapes like that.
(01/22/2023 21:31:06, room alphaville) orlando: leben on hende best 1983
(01/22/2023 21:32:09, room alphaville Bernd (to alphaandre): Hey Andre, yes, I have read that too. And I also thought it was very nice what Marian said about it. Marian and I have such a good and friendly relationship nowadays, as never before. All quarrels and resentments are laid to rest. Nevertheless
(01/22/2023 21:33:18, room alphaville Bernd: @jetset No release date in mind. The good thing is that we can afford and want to work without pressure....
(01/22/2023 21:34:20, room alphaville) Anke: having appeared in the etrnally yours videos and being more present again with AV, Will you also go on their Eternally yours symphic tour? or at least pop up here and there as a surprise?
(01/22/2023 21:35:06, room alphaville) wii (to Bernd): have you and Marian ever talked about you producing the next Alphaville album?
(01/22/2023 21:35:18, room alphaville) Karen_Cojo (to Bernd): with all the latest trend being towards AI being used in creative projects, can you envisage ever adpoting AI technology for any of your future projects?
(01/22/2023 21:35:22, room alphaville) Krapplund: Salvation, 25 years since the release last september....shit so many memories to that album
(01/22/2023 21:35:25, room alphaville) alphaandre (to Bernd): glad to herar: i remember on a sentence you said in 2003 where you leave AV "selbst Parallelen kreuzen sich irgendwann" even parallels also cross at some point :)
(01/22/2023 21:35:35, room alphaville Bernd: @Attractor Prostitue and Salvation will be released together (that's the plan right now). Supposed to be this year. Ot better: the plan is to finish off everything this year... release plans are done by the record company.. And that´s ok with me... So it
(01/22/2023 21:35:57, room alphaville) wii (to Krapplund): 25 years, what happened with all that time?
(01/22/2023 21:36:27, room alphaville Bernd: He Willy. I just realize that a message is limited in twitter... ?????
(01/22/2023 21:36:27, room alphaville) Krapplund (to wii): could be the beer 8)
(01/22/2023 21:36:56, room alphaville) wii (to Krapplund): could be 8)
(01/22/2023 21:37:16, room alphaville) Krapplund (to wii): ;D ;D ;D
(01/22/2023 21:37:41, room alphaville) MalilaM (to Bernd): Yes, it only allows about two lines of text
(01/22/2023 21:37:43, room alphaville) Krapplund: listen to Salvation
(01/22/2023 21:37:46, room alphaville) orlando: forever young in dreamscapes vol.1
(01/22/2023 21:38:09, room alphaville) wii (to Krapplund): remember that AV concert in Sweden without any beer at all?
(01/22/2023 21:38:28, room alphaville Bernd (to ChristianeMM): I would say "Pop music". But I actually do not think in these pigeonholes. Anyway, I don't think about which drawer I want a song to be in
(01/22/2023 21:38:42, room alphaville) Krapplund (to wii): no....where was that?
(01/22/2023 21:39:09, room alphaville) Krapplund: Sounds strange even for sweden
(01/22/2023 21:39:12, room alphaville) wii (to Krapplund): don't remember right now
(01/22/2023 21:39:23, room alphaville) Nightangel: unfortunately I have to go again. I wish you a lot of fun together. Greetings from Janni
(01/22/2023 21:39:29, room alphaville) wii (to Krapplund): it was a school
(01/22/2023 21:40:06, room alphaville) Denis_MM (to Bernd): Regarding your songwriting process and workflow (besides working with different partners of course), can you give us some insight into it?
(01/22/2023 21:40:09, room alphaville Bernd (to alphaandre): Part 2 of the answer: Nevertheless, we are very different and have our different opinions and perceptions. In this respect I can imagine EVERYTHING.
(01/22/2023 21:40:12, room alphaville) Denis_MM (to Bernd): And how does your recent songwriting process differ from writing/co-writing Alphaville hits like "Sounds like a melody"?
(01/22/2023 21:40:19, room alphaville) Krapplund (to wii): hmmm...västerås?
(01/22/2023 21:40:22, room alphaville Bernd (to alphaandre): part 3: It's not about me becoming an official AV-member, but only about the question if we experience magical moments together and make unique music together. For this we both would have to recognize this moment together... and you just don't
(01/22/2023 21:40:30, room alphaville) orlando: atlantic popes skin
(01/22/2023 21:41:12, room alphaville) wii (to Krapplund): could be
(01/22/2023 21:41:23, room alphaville) Svetlana (to Bernd): Do the Atlantic Popes have plans to do something with Alphaville?
(01/22/2023 21:41:53, room alphaville Bernd (to wii): DS wohnt be on streaming again... not for the next years, I guess. There is an easy reason for that: The remastering re-issues! You understand?
(01/22/2023 21:42:05, room alphaville) orlando: good evening out chat
(01/22/2023 21:42:16, room alphaville) wii (to Bernd): yeah. that makes sense
(01/22/2023 21:43:05, room alphaville Bernd (to wii): YES! All master tapes of all the albums (1-5) are at my place...
(01/22/2023 21:43:41, room alphaville) Krapplund: By the way...someone that will join any of the Alphaville gigs in Sweden next month??
(01/22/2023 21:43:55, room alphaville) wii (to Bernd): take care of them, they are worth their weight in gold :)
(01/22/2023 21:44:53, room alphaville Bernd (to Moonbo): YES. Vinyl is the main idea about the re.issues. Because they were both not released on vinyl at the time.
(01/22/2023 21:45:23, room alphaville) Krapplund (to Bernd): Great!
(01/22/2023 21:45:38, room alphaville) Moonbo: excellent
(01/22/2023 21:46:03, room alphaville) alphaandre (to Bernd): thanks for answer..maybe i still hope and i think it will happen that you both find these magicial moment (again) :) :)
(01/22/2023 21:47:22, room alphaville Bernd (to wii): Marian and me talk a lot.... ;) As I have tried to say before, anything is possible, but there is no plan. From my point of view, everything has to happen spontaneously, with passion and magic.
(01/22/2023 21:47:39, room alphaville) Anke (to Bernd): please make that magical moment happen
(01/22/2023 21:47:55, room alphaville) alphaandre (to Bernd): from Prostitute exists an VHS "Prostitute EK" or so, with an making of of Fools, are there plans to re-release it too ( like on TBB Songlines)
(01/22/2023 21:48:15, room alphaville) wii (to Bernd): let the magic happen, that would be so cool
(01/22/2023 21:48:29, room alphaville) Moonbo (to Bernd): do you plan to release any rarities for download on Atlantic Popes website?
(01/22/2023 21:48:32, room alphaville) Patten74 (to Bernd): hi. Are there any unrelased songs among the tapes
(01/22/2023 21:48:42, room alphaville Bernd (to alphaandre): Oh...I said smart things like that back then. There I am surprised....
(01/22/2023 21:49:02, room alphaville) wii (to alphaandre): I have that VHS tape :)
(01/22/2023 21:49:04, room alphaville) Krapplund (to Patten74): good question
(01/22/2023 21:49:35, room alphaville Bernd (to Svetlana): Everything is possible. But there are no plans.
(01/22/2023 21:51:41, room alphaville Bernd (to alphaandre): It might happen. MArian and I both don't rule that out. But neither of us puts any pressure on it, and neither of us has a plan. It has to happen...and then it will be good.
(01/22/2023 21:52:05, room alphaville) Svetlana (to Bernd): Thanks for the answer!
(01/22/2023 21:52:15, room alphaville) Anke (to Bernd): No Crazy show on streaming for the same reason then?
(01/22/2023 21:52:48, room alphaville) alphaandre (to Bernd): yes you definitely said that :) i think we printed the sentence years ago in special edtion of the golden news, made by Alexandra´s really a long time ago :)
(01/22/2023 21:53:33, room alphaville Bernd (to alphaandre): This EPK of Prostitute might be used during promoting... I don't know... that's part of the creative process, that has jus begun.
(01/22/2023 21:54:17, room alphaville) Karen_Cojo (to alphaandre): 20 years. Feels just like yesterday
(01/22/2023 21:54:38, room alphaville) Anke: true
(01/22/2023 21:54:56, room alphaville Bernd (to Moonbo): Probably not on the AP-Website... if we do things like that, we will use BANDCAMP for that.... there is some unreleased and strange stuff..
(01/22/2023 21:55:46, room alphaville Bernd (to Patten74): Not that many. Still in search mode.
(01/22/2023 21:55:59, room alphaville) ChristianeMM (to Bernd): Thanks for answering. :) I also think these are pigeonholes, and I especially love music that connects elements from different genres. Such as "A victory of love" for example, which felt much "darker" for me than most pop songs at that time.
(01/22/2023 21:56:21, room alphaville Bernd (to wii): Yeah... also have the VHS. But no player ;)
(01/22/2023 21:57:07, room alphaville) Krapplund (to Bernd, wii): I got the vhs also
(01/22/2023 21:57:07, room alphaville) wii (to Bernd): my old AKAI still works, but I have to get that VHS converted to digital
(01/22/2023 21:58:13, room alphaville) Krapplund (to Bernd): we get Astral Body on the Salvation-release i hope
(01/22/2023 21:58:26, room alphaville) Patten74 (to Bernd): So there might be some hidden tresures😃
(01/22/2023 21:58:56, room alphaville Bernd (to Anke): Crazy show is a different topic. That was after I left. Need to ask Marian. The "DS-Problem is, that it contains mainly alternative versions of songs from the first two albums. Those songs are needed for the re-issues.
(01/22/2023 22:00:32, room alphaville) alphaandre (to Bernd): about creative process for the double release of Prostitute and salvation, a idea: a DVD as Bonus, with Fools making of, the music video of soul messiah, and some rare live recordings from this time maybe from the show Salt Lake City.
(01/22/2023 22:00:51, room alphaville Bernd (to Krapplund): Astral Body might be an idea....
(01/22/2023 22:01:14, room alphaville) Krapplund (to Bernd): an idea?? HAVE TO BE ON IT!
(01/22/2023 22:01:19, room alphaville) Krapplund: hehehe
(01/22/2023 22:01:31, room alphaville) wii (to Krapplund): :)) :))
(01/22/2023 22:01:49, room alphaville Bernd (to Patten74): Yeah for should be a surprise when it comes out.. ;)
(01/22/2023 22:01:53, room alphaville) Krapplund: Great song...but did´nt fit to the album back than
(01/22/2023 22:01:58, room alphaville) Attractor: After the remastered album releases do you plan (or the record company) the 12” singels remastered rerelease in a box? Next year will be the 40th anniversary of Forever Young, and a 12” with the singles will be amazing. What do you think?
(01/22/2023 22:02:40, room alphaville) Anke (to Bernd): Thank you for answering, I understand that perfectly
(01/22/2023 22:03:12, room alphaville) Patten74 (to Bernd): offcourse. Thanks for rhe ansvers
(01/22/2023 22:04:46, room alphaville Bernd (to alphaandre): Thank for the ideas... all welcome. Some things jus might not be possible because of "rights". And... we don't just want to throw everything together. It should be absolutely album related.
(01/22/2023 22:07:11, room alphaville Bernd (to Attractor): I really don't know. Interesting idea. But it's definitely a question for the record company..... That will be a "product"...that needs to be sold... if you know what I mean?
(01/22/2023 22:07:48, room alphaville) Anke (to Bernd): Did you take part in the poll? Which is your favourite song on Eternally yours
(01/22/2023 22:08:51, room alphaville Bernd (to Lu): :kiss
(01/22/2023 22:09:27, room alphaville) ChristianeMM (to Bernd): As you co-wrote "Sounds like a melody", may I be so bold to ask you if you could listen to our cover version and give us a (very... :) ) short feedback? The song is very dear to us.
(01/22/2023 22:10:13, room alphaville) wii (to ChristianeMM): where can we hear it?
(01/22/2023 22:10:36, room alphaville Bernd (to Anke): My favorite songs of Eternally Yours are Welcome to the sun, summer in Berlin, Dance with me. Yes, I took part in the poll...chosing WTTS
(01/22/2023 22:11:47, room alphaville Bernd: Eternally Yours is great!. I'm extremely grateful to Marian for making this effort and really going through with it. That was not so easy.
(01/22/2023 22:12:12, room alphaville) wii: Lassie come home is my favorite, so beautiful...
(01/22/2023 22:12:38, room alphaville) ChristianeMM (to wii): Thanks for asking! I hope I am allowed to post it in the chat, otherwise please ignore the link. ;) It is a live recording:
(01/22/2023 22:12:39, room alphaville) Moonbo (to wii): Mine too
(01/22/2023 22:12:50, room alphaville Bernd (to ChristianeMM): Yes...sure. Send it to me via FB. To Bernd Gössling. Not to Bernhard Lloyd.
(01/22/2023 22:13:34, room alphaville) ChristianeMM (to Bernd): Thank you, I will! :)
(01/22/2023 22:13:48, room alphaville) Anke: ;D ;D ;D :D They are all amazing versions of huge songs! Wtts, ET, Moongirl and Dwm are my faves, I opted for ET
(01/22/2023 22:13:49, room alphaville) wii (to ChristianeMM): listening......
(01/22/2023 22:15:00, room alphaville) Anke (to ChristianeMM): Thank you for sharing your song here
(01/22/2023 22:15:40, room alphaville) wii (to ChristianeMM): I like it, good vokal performance
(01/22/2023 22:15:42, room alphaville) alphaandre (to Anke, Bernd): i agree too, Eternally Yours is great, the FY B-Side Welcome to side ... wahnsinn ... first time listen to EY with my welcome to the sun..i thought can someone write such a beautiful song, i mean i know that song...
(01/22/2023 22:16:01, room alphaville) alphaandre: but on EY with this
(01/22/2023 22:16:21, room alphaville Bernd (to ChristianeMM): Thank you! I will have a listen...
(01/22/2023 22:16:33, room alphaville) Moonbo: goodnight all
(01/22/2023 22:19:17, room alphaville) wii: I think next time, we'll do some more promotion for the chat, we used to have any more online users.
(01/22/2023 22:19:28, room alphaville Bernd (to Anke): It's all fantastic. Especially when the symphonic versions are interpreting the songs in a different, new way.
(01/22/2023 22:19:30, room alphaville) wii: many more, I mean...
(01/22/2023 22:19:32, room alphaville Bernd (to Anke): My only criticism is that the big three are a little too close to the original....without really adding a real new touch. But that is also a matter of taste
(01/22/2023 22:19:39, room alphaville) ChristianeMM (to wii): Thank you very much!
(01/22/2023 22:19:58, room alphaville) Krapplund (to Bernd): I think the same
(01/22/2023 22:20:04, room alphaville) Denis_MM (to wii): That sounds great, more people should know about this opportunity to chat with Bernd!
(01/22/2023 22:20:15, room alphaville) wii (to Bernd): for me that slow songs work best with an orchestra
(01/22/2023 22:20:36, room alphaville) MalilaM (to wii): I agree, althought it's been far less chaotic than other chats. ;D
(01/22/2023 22:20:55, room alphaville Bernd (to wii): I am fine with the amount of users. Otherwise I do not get behind with the answer at all ;)
(01/22/2023 22:20:56, room alphaville) Anke (to Bernd): I agree and Inthinknthe big three are appearing too often, in too many versions! only my humble opinion...
(01/22/2023 22:21:01, room alphaville) wii (to MalilaM): yeah, it's been crazy at times
(01/22/2023 22:22:37, room alphaville Bernd: Have I answered all questions? Or did I miss one or the other?
(01/22/2023 22:22:48, room alphaville) ChristianeMM (to Bernd): Thanks a lot in advance! Wow... It's great to be able to speak with one of the creators of this beautiful song.
(01/22/2023 22:23:11, room alphaville) Denis_MM (to Bernd): I think you missed mine. ;)
(01/22/2023 22:23:14, room alphaville) Anke: will we see each other in one of the symphonic shows?
(01/22/2023 22:24:05, room alphaville) Anke: sorry, Dennis, you go first...
(01/22/2023 22:24:13, room alphaville Bernd (to Denis_MM): Which one?
(01/22/2023 22:24:19, room alphaville) Denis_MM (to Bernd): I asked about the songwriting process, but I understand the question may not be the easiest to answer in a short time. ;)
(01/22/2023 22:24:30, room alphaville) Denis_MM (to Bernd): Regarding your songwriting process and workflow (besides working with different partners of course), can you give us some insight into it?
(01/22/2023 22:24:35, room alphaville) Denis_MM (to Bernd): And how does your recent songwriting process differ from writing/co-writing Alphaville hits like "Sounds like a melody"?
(01/22/2023 22:25:01, room alphaville Bernd (to Anke): I will be at the concert in Berlin in June
(01/22/2023 22:25:31, room alphaville) Denis_MM: Sorry to ask such a specific question, but for me as a non-professional musician and songwriter this is very interesting.
(01/22/2023 22:25:32, room alphaville) alphaandre (to Bernd): Thank you very much, it was a pleasure :) and yeah i really looking forward for physical AtlanticPopes Release und the ReIssue of Prostitute/Salvation. Danke und Gute Nacht :) :)
(01/22/2023 22:27:14, room alphaville Bernd (to Denis_MM): That's for sure not an easy question. There is nor real answer. Because there is no strict process. For me it's still try and error and grabbing something that's "special" and building everything else around it... And that "something" can be any
(01/22/2023 22:30:34, room alphaville) Anke: I hope to meet some if you in Düsseldorf and Frankfurt, looking forward... but also to all the popes releases O:-) :D
(01/22/2023 22:30:34, room alphaville Bernd (to Denis_MM): The process back in 83/84 with Marian and Frank was an ongoing magical moment.
(01/22/2023 22:30:40, room alphaville) MalilaM (to Bernd): Thank you for being patient and thorough with the answers. ;D :shy
(01/22/2023 22:30:46, room alphaville Bernd (to Denis_MM): One thing led to another... all with enthusiasm and passion. And like magicians we chose the right things from the many ideas, without knowing what we actually wanted and what we were actually doing.
(01/22/2023 22:32:19, room alphaville Bernd (to alphaandre): Thank you. I am also extremely looking forward to the Atlantic Popes release... but it's also fun to release one song after the other....
(01/22/2023 22:34:00, room alphaville Bernd: Ok... I'll say "good night" then. Thank you very much for all the questions and that you were here. Bye bye!
