It's a shame that you won't be posting any more demos of any kind anymore as I've come to realize that Marian seemingly has hundreds of unheard songs (maybe not this many but you get what I mean), but I understand the band's reputation would be tarnished if he were to upload them on there and probably label them as being a new song. I can see it now...


ALPHAVILLE - SONG DEMO (2018 THUNDERBABY REMIX)

or something stupid like that... I always had fun looking at your blog (I especially loved those covers you made for the demos!).

An other thing I wonder about is an alternative platform as I tend to believe that tumblr has no future. However, I didn’t find any free service yet, next would be to check out paid ones
Thanks for your answer,hope you find the time

Hey fellas,

AlphavilleNow will be available again soon. Not on Tumblr, but in a new place online and in a new context. The old contents will also be available again, probably as.pdf for download or as re-posts.

Reason is, that AlphavilleNow was running on Tumblr's platform, and I didn't see any way to adapt it to the new GDPR requirements. Letting the blog continue as it is would mean that it does not meet the requirements for up-to-date protection of user data, which would not be fair to users and would put us in legal trouble as content providers.

But don't you worry: the project is not dead - we are working on reviving it.
As soon as there is something new, you will find it on the official web site of Alphaville - www.Alphaville.de


Thanks to you and (quasi) see you soon,
Tobi

I sure hope so. God knows I'd nerd out in front of Marian. haha I'd be going on and on about the various demos he's made... I don't think he'd be impressed, but who knows..

Where can we find the lyrics for Little Moon For Psychopaths?
I can't seem to remember if the full text was published at the time, apart from the chorus bit:

You can be a giant and you can be a troubadour
For each and every sanity you will find a cure
Here’s the place to leave behind your earthly avatars
On my little moon of psychopaths…
So if you need a holiday far off from this world
You’ll be welcomed by my sirens’ songs and mysteries unfurled
Send out funny postcards from meadows full of stars
On my little moon of psychopaths…

Lyrics were posted in 2 consecutives posts on avnow. What you posted is part 2.


Sometimes you’re so sad and sometimes you’re so scared
And no one seems to know you and no one seems to care
I can hardly wait to see you comin’ past
On my little moon for psychopaths...
Nothing really matters and no one has a clue
A universe of questions that crumbles over you
Free your mind from sorrow and troubles’ aftermath
On my little moon for psychopaths...

You can be a giant and you can be a troubadour
For each and every sanity you will find a cure
Here’s the place to leave behind your earthly avatars
On my little moon of psychopaths...
So if you need a holiday far off from this world
You’ll be welcomed by my sirens’ songs and mysteries unfurled
Send out funny postcards from meadows full of stars
On my little moon of psychopaths...


1921 07 04


They were also encoded in the Moonbase mp3



Sometimes you’re so sad and sometimes you’re so scared
And no one seems to know you and no one seems to care
I can hardly wait to see you comin’ past
On my little moon for psychopaths...

Nothing really matters and no one has a clue
A universe of questions that crumbles over you
Free your mind from sorrow and troubles’ aftermath
On my little moon for psychopaths...

You can be a giant and you can be a troubadour
For each and every sanity you will find a cure
Here’s the place to leave behind your earthly avatars
On my little moon for psychopaths...

So if you need a holiday far off from this world
You’ll be welcomed by my sirens’ songs and mysteries unfurled
Send out funny postcards from mad owls full of stars
On my little moon for psychopaths...


March 1920 Kampen /Sylt


Also they are in the download area of the Dreamroom...

Thank you Halfnelson :)
I do have the original AVNow! mp3 but where are the metadata for the lyrics? Do we need a special software to read them?
