Forever Young

Ved inngangen til den siste helgen i august 2006 vil Min Mening presentere en teksten til en sang som Min Mening finner aktuell selv i dag, 22 år etter at den ble gitt ut. Og nei, det er ikke Johnny Cash jeg presenterer denne gangen, men den tyske gruppen Alphaville.

Nok snakk, her er teksten:

---

Lets dance in style, lets dance for a while
Heaven can wait were only watching the skies
Hoping for the best but expecting the worst
Are you going to drop the bomb or not?

Let us die young or let us live forever
We dont have the power but we never say never
Sitting in a sandpit, life is a short trip
The musics for the sad men

Can you imagine when this race is won
Turn our golden faces into the sun
Praising our leaders were getting in tune
The musics played by the madmen

Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever, forever and ever

Some are like water, some are like the heat
Some are a melody and some are the beat
Sooner or later they all will be gone
Why dont they stay young

Its so hard to get old without a cause
I dont want to perish like a fading horse
Youth is like diamonds in the sun
And dimonds are forever

So many adventures couldnt happen today
So many songs we forgot to play
So many dreams are swinging out of the blue
We let them come true

Min Menings redaktør (jeg digger den tittelen) vokste opp på 80-tallet, og min musikksmak er nok preget av det. Men uavhengig av det mener Min Mening at denne teksten til Alphaville er minst like aktuell i dag som den var da den kom ut med albumet "Forever Young" i 1984.
