Together In Electric Dreams by Philip Oakley and Giorgio Moroder

What do you think?

‘Together In Electric Dreams’ was recorded for the soundtrack of the 1984 film ‘Electric Dreams’.  The song achieved more success than the film, although I must confess, when I first watched the film as an 8 year old, I absolutely loved it. 

This song is more relevant since the invention of social media and Skype. People can still communicate “face-to-face” no matter how far away they are. Even if someone has passed away their social profiles can still be tagged in photos and checked in to locations as a reminder to all their loved ones of important moments and places from during their life.

Lyrics

I only knew you for a while
I never saw your smile
Till it was time to go
Time to go away (time to go away)
Sometimes its hard to recognise
But comes as a surprise
And its too late
It’s just to late to stay (to late to stay)
We’ll always be together
However far it seems (love never ends)
We’ll always be together
Together in electric dreams
 
Because of the friendship that you gave
Has taught me to be brave
No matter where I go
I’ll never find a better prize (find a better prize)
Though your miles and miles away
I see you everyday
I don’t have to try
I just close my eyes
I close my eyes
We’ll always be together
However far it seems (love never ends)
We’ll always be together
Together in electric dreams
