As far as I remember „the carnival is over“ is a solitaire song. The respecting line in the lyrics is one of a few you might come across in misc AV songs

It would be extremely interesting (and worthwhile) do do a cluster/network analysis of all the Alphaville lyrics to visualize the obvious and hidden lyrical interconnections between all the songs. I wonder if some crazy buried message or mindblowing image would arise from that, or just a beautiful maze.



As I run a big data consultancy, I might do just that one day, and post it here

That sounds like a project which could complement Michael Carrol‘s Cosmic Meadows

Pb is that the vast majority of people who like a content don't usually bother to comment, but the minority of haters will automatically jump on their keyboard to explain why they would have done better (but not 'how').
I did not notice at all the sound quality, just that the song is too short, because when it stops I am like 'noooo, not yet!', which is a good sign !

The line 'And we chant in megascope' is still an enigma, I hear 'And we're changing summer's hope', very intriguing. Help Tobias !

„I sing "Cinascope" instead of "Megascope". I didn't like the sound of "Megascope." The term was a fictional extension of the existing term "Cinemascope". But there's no "Cinascope" either. But the real "Cinemascope" did not fit into the phrasing because of the many syllables. So I sing: "And we chant in Cinascope." "And we're changing summer's hope" is actually great. If I record the song again, I'll put in the line.“

Thank you so much Tobias, we’re so lucky to have you!
The mystery is solved, the line fits with the next one (...’screen’...).
My favorite being ‘in the dreams of someone’s else’ ��
Looking forward the next Monday’s For Good ditties ��

I've had this song on loop like crazy lately... It's such a great track. I'm curious on why it was mono, though: I'm guessing the mp3 you or Marian had on file was mono and nobody noticed until it was released. Seeing how the others are stereo, it surprises me in a way. I'd guess Komor produced every track heard on CROG at one point and they were all fully mastered and such! He's one hell of a producer I think. Really good.
