Music Matter 10/7/19

alpahville

Hailing from Germany, Alphaville wrote this song during the Cold War and wanted it to sound slightly hopeful but with lyrics that are actually touched on  dark subjects such as the fear of aging and death. Forever Young was released in 1984 and wasn’t a big hit when it was released but it has become well known because of its use in movies and TV shows such as One Tree Hill and Napoleon Dynamite.
