Song of the Day

It was end of March 1986. I guess it was the 30th. My parents, my best friend, and I spent some days in London. On the afternoon of that day we stumbled in a Video Café. When we entered my friend and I were standing there with open mouths. The walls were covered with monitors. Each wall made one big screen out of the many monitors. The played the current pop songs and we felt like in heaven. It was so special. Sitting in there I heard this song (and saw this video) for the first time in my life. Whenever I hear it or think of it, I remember the moment sitting in that Video Café in London.

Kyrie Eleison – Mr. Mister

Kyrie eleison
Kyrie eleison, kyrie

The wind blows hard
Against this mountainside
Across the sea into my soul
It reaches into where I cannot hide
Setting my feet upon the road

My heart is old
It holds my memories
My body burns a gemlike flame
Somewhere between
The soul and soft machine
Is where I find myself again

Kyrie eleison
Down the road that I must travel
Kyrie eleison
Through the darkness of the night
Kyrie eleison
Where I’m going, will you follow
Kyrie eleison
On a highway in the light

When I was young
I thought of growing old
Of what my life
Would mean to me

Would I have followed
Down my chosen road
Or only wished
What I could be

Kyrie eleison
Down the road that I must travel
Kyrie eleison
Through the darkness of the night
Kyrie eleison
Where I’m going, will you follow
Kyrie eleison
On a highway in the light

Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh

Kyrie eleison
Down the road that I must travel
Kyrie eleison
Through the darkness of the night
Kyrie eleison
Where I’m going, will you follow
Kyrie eleison
On a highway in the light

In Love and Light!

Wow ! You post so many songs I loved and had forgotten until you post them. Thanks again. You might want to check-out Denis Leary’s new show on FX, Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll. This video sure reminds me of this new show.

Oh, is that what the words were? Kyrie eleison? Is that a name? I always thought he was saying ‘carry a laser’. Actually I knew those were the wrong words but I couldn’t imagine what he was saying.
