Shooting Star
by Dollar

Tonight of nights you should be far away
A million miles from where you are
You'll hear the rhythm as it sounds across the sky
Above your heads a shooting star

And they'll be dancing in the moonlight
Dancing in the strange light
Voices from the bright lights
I wonder who they are
Don't worry 'cause it's only a shooting star

They move in closer with their gleaming eyes
Arrested chariots of fire
Don't make a move for they begin to speak
I do believe they wear a smile

And they'll be dancing in the moonlight
Dancing in the strange light
Voices far and friendly
They know just who you are
Don't worry 'cause it's only a shooting star
Repeat

In the moonlight

I just discovered this song and I'm obsessed with it. This is the genesis of Flock of Seagulls and a lot of other poppy New Wave bands. And that bass line? It has been copied and copied and copied again!

@BADGER In later productions Horn would be playing in the background .

You are defintely right.. I loved so much that band " a flock of seagulls".

Jeff Cobb a certain Trevor Horn (The Buggles) was involved with Dollar and if he didn't produce this he had a major influence.

At the time these guys were heavily criticised as stupid and silly. Listening to these tracks again though, they were fantastically crafted pop tunes, a very difficult thing to achieve in the music business.

@Countess of Groan They were extremely well packaged and produced. I always thought that their voices were weedy but electronics and recording techniques, even over 40 years ago, can make up for a lot of deficiencies.

Thank Trevor Horn (The Buggles) for production.

A lot of music seems better to me now than it was in the day. The reasons are IMO, the quality of the other music at the time made this "teeny bopper" music and nothing special, whereas the current standard of pop music now makes this seem much better than it was in the 70's.
