Alphaville – Forever Young (1984)

Alphaville album coverForever Young by Alphaville has followed me for many years. Not because I have any intentions of being forever young but I think it is a nice popsong which sound a little melancholic to me. At release I did not know it. I first head it when I was in high school but went strait out to bye it.

The lyrics are quite funny:

“Sitting in a sandpit, life is a short trip

The music’s for the sad man“

Are music only for the sad people? I do not agree with Alphaville! Music are for sad as well as for anybody else no matter what mood you are in. Later Alphaville sing that:

“The music’s played by the madman”

Off course this might be the case but I do not think all musicians will label themselves as mad. Byt hey, it is a song and we do not have to agree on everything. And besides take a look at the members of Alphaville. They are stylish!

Here at MusicNostalgic we do not want to live forever. Do you?

Forever Young is on the album by the same name.
