I sure would like to listen to this track in German. In my opinion is sounds better. But I couldn't figure out how to make this station prefer German language.

This actually ain't bad, this song. I was reminded more of the Police than David Bowie to be honest.

I remember when Laurie and I always played this song; long live the 80's, new wave, and trance music of today!

The 80's WAS A great time for music, not too bad now either. We have that and now. I know I just turned 60. Check out Agnes Obel.

Love this song! It is my dream to go to space, or die trying. But I'm afraid that when i go, I'll never be happy anywhere else.

This is a great song, but surprisingly hard to find on MP3. I would have loved to drop Peter Schilling (where ever he is) a dollar, but I ended up using a YouTube to Mp3 Converter to get it.

Another reason why the 80's was the best decade for all music songs and genres!!!!!

MartyVH, I agree it is all up there, what is down here came from up there. But I would still stay down here if I had to ride a big burning flame on top of a rocket topped by a tin can. (but I still love the Saturn V)
