A song from German synthpop recording act Alphaville’s 1984 debut album of the same name. The single was a strong hit in Scandinavia and in the European German-speaking countries.
The single achieved more success in the United States than in the United Kingdom, but it failed to reach the American top 40 despite three separate US single releases.
The song’s music video shows the band performing in one of the halls at Holloway Sanatorium in Virginia Water. A number of people ranging from children to the elderly, dressed in ragged finery, awake to watch the band, then walk through a diamond-shaped glowing portal.
