CD Reviews

Kitsch Melancholy
Marcelo Marcal Da Silva | Rio, Brazil | 06/20/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This song was huge in Brazil and still today it is aired by our Adult Radios. I think this song is now my favourite song of all times. It took me years to get to its title and who played it but finally a british neighbour told me the name of the song/band and I could find it in a compilation here. I see that this was #6 in the UK back in 1985, but it should've gone 1 for it's really a melancholic, kitsch and melodious song. It reminds me of Love Unlimited's "So Glad That I'm Woman" (don't know why) and even of some of ABBA's harmonies. I'd love to know more about Rah Band."
"Clouds Across the Moon" could be made into a movie, easily

"It is an apocalyptic vision of the future. A woman tries to contact her husband who's in Mars, fighting who knows who, and she has few minutes to tell him that she misses him. The fact that Mars is close enough to the Earth in order to establish a clear communication makes the song scientificly accurate. It breaks my heart when the operator tells the woman there are cosmic storms in the asteroid belt and she has to hurry. When the communication is lost and she says she'll try to contact him next year, we realize not only her sadness but the limits of technology in the future, and the elliptic orbit of the planets, following Kepler's law.

"Clouds Across The Moon" is one of the most complete songs of the eighties. Reaches a perfect circle at the coda, and is melancholic and sad but danceable. Totally underrated, the Rah Band should be put next to artists as Human League, Simple Minds, Duran Duran and Spandau Ballet.

The ultimate space age love song!

"Cannot stop thinking of the environment as displayed in "2001 - A Space Odyssey" and similar when hearing this song. A classic."
