I must go for On the beach as well, according to me, the best song on the whole album! Love everything about it, the intro - so mystical and realistic, the whole song itself!!!

I think "stranger than dreams" is almost as good as "joyride" and "colours" are on Dreamscapes!

Yes I have to add "Stranger than Dreams". It took me a while to actually listen to it. I skipped it many times because I thought it was "just another boring instrumental" but it's really great! It has a lot of the Alphaville-magic I fell in love with!!


Take care

Weird isn't it? Same story for me! In the beginning I skipped always the song until a day that I was to lazy to puch on the next button and I listened to that song! And now I listen a lot to it!

Did you know that "Stranger Than Dreams" is exactly the same song as "Ford Galaxy" on Rainer Bloss' album Drive In III from 1999? The song was written in 1991. I don't know if the original title was "Ford Galaxy" or "Stranger Than Dreams".

It's one of my favorite instrumental songs

best guitar on Crazyshow on Upside down, it made me remember of the Bowie Cover by the Berlin Band "Dan" they covered "Starman" and the guitar sounds familiar on Upside Down, funny that credits to Upside down says, Guitar by Dan (whoever thats is...)
