missroserose: (Psychosomatic)
That strange, paradigm-shifting, serious-o.O-faced moment when you hear a song you've always previously dismissed as period-pop-pap of the aggressively-banal "High school is the best years of your life!!!" sort, only to realize that it contains lyrics like these:

Let's dance in style, lets dance for a while
Heaven can wait we're 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 don't have the power but we never say never
Sitting in a sandpit, life is a short trip
The music's for the sad men

Can you imagine when this race is won
Turn our golden faces into the sun
Praising our leaders we're getting in tune
The music's played by the mad men


So, uh...yeah. Well played, Alphaville. Well played.

(Also, the video looks like several early Tim Burton movies swirled together with a bit of Python and a dash of cheesy period sci-fi to boot. Surprisingly entertaining.)
