After the horror of Cats I was delighted when a track from Jeff Wayne’s musical version of War of the Worlds popped up on my iPod earlier. This is a musical I actually do hold quite dearly! I went to see it live once.

This track is The Spirit of Man. After the martians have already begun to transform the landscape of Earth after successfully conquering it, a mad parson has lost his faith and mistakenly believes that the martians are Satan’s spawn. His wife tries to help him see reason but he is beyond it. While maybe not my favourite song from War of the Worlds, this is quite a powerful scene in a very unique and (in my opinion) underappreciated musical.

I particularly love the darkness of the guitar part at 6:50 onwards. It is so gloomy, depressing and post-apocalyptic and I do love it.

I don't know. I really like Vangelis in general. His film scores are wonderful (Blade Runner, Chariots of Fire, 1492: Conquest of Paradise and so on).

Throw in Jon Anderson from Yes and you have a very unique thing going on.

This is very relaxing.

Tell my doctor how to shake
Awake a nightmare that is only worse

I got a plane in the middle of the night,
Don't you mind
I nearly killed somebody, don't you mind,
Don't you mind

I gave you something you can never give back,
Don't you mind
You've seen my face like a heart attack, don't you mind,
Don't you mind

I was late but I arrived,
I'm sorry but I'd rather be getting high than watching the family die
Exaggerate and you and I
Oh I think I did something terrible to your body, don't you mind

I put your mother through hell, don't you mind
I hate your brother as well, don't you mind,
Don't you mind
Oh I was thinking about killing myself, don't you mind

I love you, don't you mind, don't you mind

I put your mother through hell, don't you mind
I hurt your brother as well, don't you mind, don't you mind
Oh I was thinking bout killing myself, don't you mind

I love you, don't you mind, don't you mind

Been a while since I listened to this. I do like chilling to it from time to time.

Plus I definitely agree that we're never gonna survive unless we get a little crazy. :updown:

A most accurate depiction of the 80s to be honest.

Not that I lived through it, but it surely must be how it was.

And I'll use you as a warning sign,
That if you talk enough sense then you'll your mind.
