The Songs of Alphaville

I remember the moment I was introduced to Alphaville. My sisters and I were lying on the floor with my cousins. We were looking through his LPs and I picked up one he had recently bought. The album? Forever Young by Aphaville.

I was hooked. My cousin made me a tape of their music that he had, and I bought some of their albums as they came out. It is difficult to think of which was my favourite track. I remember listening to Afternoons in Utopia often:

And I always enjoyed listening to Dance with Me:

Do you have any Alphaville favourites?
