I think each one of us has a soundtrack of life, that is, certain songs that connect with formative situations in life. The first love, a moment when you were very happy or maybe even unhappy lost someone.
The song "Forever Young" by the German synthesizer pop group Alphaville was released in 1984. It was the band's second single. There are songs that shape one in many different ways. This one is in my personal Top5.
In 1989 I was lucky enough to catch an Amiga license album. In the GDR, Western music was hardly to be found. The VEB Amiga Berlin pressed few albums, which were under the counter and if, then only with relations to get. In July 1989, shortly before my 17th birthday, I was able to buy an album on the black market. This moment of happiness.
I wanted to cover the track, as a small tribute to this wonderful song.
In the original they used the Jupiter 8, PPG wave, Logan String Melody 2 and for the solo at the end the Arp Odyssey. I recorded everything with the Juno-106. That is also from the year 1984.;)
