With over 3,000 songs on my iPod, you would think it would be easy for me to choose what song/group to talk about every Tuesday. But, sometimes I go through so many songs in a week, it’s hard for me to pick just one.
This week I thought we would take a look at a band that was considered a “super-group” in the eighties.
The members of Asia included: John Wetton (King Crimson, Uriah Heep), Steve Howe (Yes), Geoff Downes (Yes, The Buggles) and Carl Palmer (Emerson, Lake & Palmer). The changed lead singers twice, once in 1985 and then again in 1990, but the above is the original and, by far, the best line-up.
With MTV gaining popularity by leaps and bounds (and still having a small percentage of “promotional videos” to play) this song got a lot of airtime.
One of the unique things about this band is, that for quite some time, all their album titles began with the letter “A.” Asia, Alpha, Astra, Aqua, etc.
I was so into this group that in my last year of art class in High School, my first painting was a montage of their first two albums. Some of the songs that you may remember include: “Don’t Cry,” “The Smile Has Left Your Eyes” and “Only Time Will Tell.” But, just like in true love, you always remember your first and theirs was today MyPod pick.
Enjoy this weeks MyPod pick from Asia and “Heat Of The Moment.”
