((Alphaville)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Written by Patrick McNamara

Alphaville is a band from Germany born in 1983 A.D.

In this music blobbers opinion, they're responsible for one of the absolute best synth-pop songs of the '80s.

And here it is.

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

God, I ❤️ that song.

And in case you're thinking this band was some kind of one hit wonder, "Forever Young" wasn't even their biggest hit!

This jam was.

That's a good one too. Was huge in Japan.

But Forever Young will forever be the Alphaville jam for me.

🎶 It's so hard to get old without a cause
I don't want to perish like a fading horse
Youth's like diamonds in the sun
And diamonds are forever 🎶

SUCH A GOOD JAM.

Anyway, what I really came to tell you is that Alphaville is about to play their first NYC show EVER (in the history of their existence!) this summer.

(first shows in Chicago and LA too)

I don't know how this is possible for a successful band that was born in 1983 A.D. but there you are. You should go see them.

Listen for the music blobber in the crowd singing this part beautifully:

🎶 So many adventures couldn't happen today
So many songs we forgot to play
So many dreams swinging out of the blue
We let them come truuuuuuuuue 🎶

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
