Alien [Your’e Not The]

Alien-square

Alien ( you’re not )

I hadn’t heard this for ages and was amazed how ” now ” it sounded ….I bet you don’t know what this ones about do you…well I shan’t tell you…shan’t …shan’t …shan’t ..I think in one of my blogs I sort of half offered an “Other Side”  t shirt as a prize to the person who got the closest or came up with the most interesting ” off the wall ” idea of what this tracks about ..so there we have it…..I’ll maybe give you a clue …a famous singer with a cockney accent who also used to do the odd bit of acting used to sing about this sort of thing too….

This was one of those tracks were I went to town with the chords…I had my Yamaha DX7 on no7 orchestra patch and will have had it on full blast probably going through Steve’s bass amp at our rented house in New Brighton…I used to play football on Sunday afternoons with landlords son Stan…he was great Stan but I always got the feeling he wanted to tell me something like ” is there any chance you could not have it on The Orchestra patch no7 on your DX7 playing through your brothers bass amp full blast …it’s causing me hassle with your neighbours ”

I Vaguely remember playing it to max,Steve and Paul and playing it so loud they couldn’t really hear what was going on and them asking me to” calm down a bit..that’s it …so that’s an a flat..no it isn’t …what the fuck is that he’s playing Steve ” and me almost bursting into flames with the excitement of it all

Apart from writing it..I think the credit goes to Paul ,Max,Kev and Steve for making it into such a powerful track…Thanks lads…

You always wanted to fly high …
And in your mind you touch the sky …
Some when they look they pity you …
But in my mind and I know you’re free to be …
Just who you are …
And that’s a start …
You’re not tied down …
To be a star ..

hey hey .. you’re not the alien .. no no no .. no no
you’re not the alien .. no no no ..

When I just sit and look at you …
And you don’t even know the truth …
You aint even heard of nuclear war …
Or of the starving in Africa …
You don’t get down …

And that’s a start …
You’re not tied down …
To be a star ..

hey hey .. you’re not the alien .. no no no .. no no
you’re not the alien .. no no no …
