about

Space Oasis came about in a funny kind of way. There is a cult German Sci-Fi Program from the 60's called
The dances the space space travellers do in the 'bar' of the space station are hilariously funny. The soundtrack is legendary. One song called "Bolero on the Moonrocks' inspired me to want to write a lyric about dancing in space. The video too was inspired by the theme, the director and his team creating something of a lunar landscape in which i could strut my disco stuff. Of course a giant mirrorball had to be included and the perspex box in which i stand and sing, whenever i'm not wafting around the landscape/set was an idea i had long had, about being entrapped, but in a stylish kind of way, with a nod to 60's perspex design. Well, something like that anyway.
Co-written by Martin King, who had the original backing track, onto which i wrote the song, it was then taken over by the Electribe guys at first, and later ended up on my 'Deadline' album. Personal favourite video Moment: Pedal Steel player in a country and western outfit and a skirt.
A songs journey, further than space.

Track Name: Space Oasis
I, have a feeling
and my ability to reason's
gonna let me down
and oh I, can't understand it
that one single trip up on your wings
can turn my cloud around

oh and here
am I listening to the rain
trying to receive a message
feeling the pain
because you'll be
here with me

we are dancing on a star
don't tell me when the party's over
we're in a space oasis
a sea of tranquillity
we are dancing on a star
don't tell me when the party's over
and we will fall my love
in reverie

I, have a feeling
that the serenity of senses
gonna make me doubt, oh yeah
and so I, won't ever believe that, no no
that only one slip into your vision
can make the whole world spin around

oh and here
am I walking on the moon
trying to find out a meaning
knowing that soon
you will be here
here with me
floating for only a moment
in eternity
