If I'm not mistaken, 58 with only two used twice ('People so benign, life is slowing down' & 'It were days like these when the time was ripe'). Wich is a bit odd as the verses appearing four times both use a different sheet of paper each time.

This song & the one before, good easy listening at first glance, are growin' on me too. A job well done gentlemen!

...and probably more if we count the potential loss with the gusts of wind

Excellent remake of the Whiskey track. The lyrics are brilliant. But is it Marian singing?


Great work Shapeseven. Again, this one is very highly professional looking

I really enjoyed this version! It's come a long way from its "Universal" beginnings, that's for sure!


I was quite moved when he got to the spoken part with all the messages. It's a little something that we all have to remember, no matter what, and I can think of a few people in different chats who could use those messages as a reminder.


I also refer to "MoonGirl" for morale boosts, but this works well, too!

I noticed on the Geniuslyrics website somebody posted the lyrics a few days ago with this song bio:

"This song has a long history, reaching from our present 21st millennium way down to the year 1985. Back then Bernhard, Rick and Marian were writing music for their second album. This song was originally planned to be part of a series of three or four continuous pieces telling of a little boy who grows up alone in an abandoned house only supported by strange technical devices and a dubious entity who speaks to him via a television set."

I've never heard anything about his before. Can anyone verify this information and maybe point me to a source? I'm very curious. Thank you.


Dance like no one is watching
Love like you'll never be hurt
Sing like no one is listening
Live like it's your last day on earth...

On Alphaville's facebook page they posted exactly what you quoted :)

I was convinced that there was a central story that was told in the whole of Utopia, the way songs were coupled together by certain lyrics.
Perhaps this story had something to do with that...???
