Never Turn Your Back on Mother Earth Written by Ron Mael When she's on her best behaviour Don't be tempted by her favours Never turn your back on Mother Earth Towns are hurled from A to B By arms that looked so smooth to me Never turn your back on Mother Earth Three days and two nights away from my friends Amen to anything that brings a quick return to my friends To my friends Never turn your back on Mother Earth Well, I'll admit I was unfaithful But from now I'll be more faithful Never turn your back on Mother Never turn your back on Mother Never turn your back on Mother Earth

Space Age Love Song Written by Alister Score, Francis Maudsley, Michael Score + Paul Reynolds Verse 1 I saw your eyes And you made me smile For a little while I was falling in love Verse 2 I saw your eyes They touched my mind And though it took a while I was falling in love Verse 3 I saw your eyes And you made me cry And for a little while I was falling in love I was falling in love Falling in love Falling in love Falling in love Falling in love

Tears Run Rings Written by Marc Almond Verse 1 On heavenly rain You fell into my life Unforgettable smile Unforgettable lies In the name of the cross Or a banner of love With the hand of a friend Or under a blanket of trust Chorus The angels sighed A little girl cried The tears run rings around my eyes Verse 2 We're going to set fire To the house in my heart We're going to set fire To the whole damn world I don't understand The wicked things we do In the name of the good In the name of the few Repeat Chorus x2 Verse 3 Don't look up at me With your innocent smile When the bed is burning Around my head When a war breaks out It'll be no surprise Your unforgettable smile Your unforgettable lies Chorus 2 And I've got to stop running To make my start We've got to get together Before we fall apart Verse 4 They're pulling down the old slums To build the new They're bringing back the old rules To please the few In the name of the cross Or a banner of love With the hand of a friend Or under a blanket of trust Repeat Chorus x2 Repeat Chorus x2 Verse 5 Pull down the old slums To build the new Pull down the love I built with you Promise of tomorrow You never kept And you try to burn the house down When I slept Verse 6 The nation's in disorder There's chaos in my heart We've got to get together Before we fall apart

Home 04:28
Home Written by Vince Clarke & Andy Bell Verse 1 I ain't never going home 'Cause I'm having a good time I ain't never going home 'Cause my time is come Pre Chorus 1 I'll wait for the winter To lie at my door White stretches out before me Leads me to the hall Chorus 1 White circles play within my mind Ices over and freezes life Time will come, time will come, time will fall Bringing the world to its feet Bringing the world to its feet Verse 2 I ain't never turning back 'Cause I've come this far And I'm lost within my tracks I will follow the north star Pre Chorus 2 I'll wait till the springtime Is breathing at my door The wilderness before me Heeds the lions roar Chorus 2 White circles play within my mind Ices over and freezes life Time will come, time will come, time will fall Bringing the world to its feet Bringing the world to her hands and her knees Pre Chorus 3 I'll wait till the winter Is lying at my door Time stretches out before me A stone's throw from the door Chorus 3 White circles play within my mind Ices over and freezes life Time will come, time will come, time will fall Bringing the world to its feet Bringing the world to her hands and her feet Bringing the world to its feet

Wind of Change Written by Klaus Meine I follow the Moskva Down to Gorky Park Listening to the wind of change An August summer night Soldiers passing by Listening to the wind of change The world is closing in Did you ever think That we could be so close, like brothers The future's in the air (I) can feel it everywhere Blowing with the wind of change Take me to the magic of the moment On a glory night Where the children of tomorrow dream away (dream away) In the wind of change Walking down the street Distant memories Are buried in the past forever I follow the Moskva Down to Gorky Park Listening to the wind of change Take me to the magic of the moment On a glory night Where the children of tomorrow share their dreams (share their dreams) With you and me Take me to the magic of the moment On a glory night (the glory night) Where the children of tomorrow dream away (dream away) In the wind of change (the wind of change) The wind of change Blows straight into the face of time Like a stormwind that will ring the freedom bell For peace of mind Let your balalaika sing What my guitar wants to say Take me to the magic of the moment On a glory night Where the children of tomorrow share their dreams (share their dreams) With you and me (with you and me) Take me to the magic of the moment On a glory night Where the children of tomorrow dream away (dream away) In the wind of change (in the wind of change)

about

Yes, Ladies and Gentlemen, it's that time of year. Time for a Holiday!

As we say goodbye to 2020, and welcome 2021 with open arms, we round off the year with some classic chestnuts from our fave synth heroes.

This year it's Scorpions, Erasure, A Flock of Seagulls, Alan Parsons Project, Doves, Marc Almond and Sparks.

Thanks to all our amazing fans for your support in 2020. It's been a hell of a year, but it's nearly over, and we can all look forward to an amazing 2021.

We have lots of new releases planned for 2021. Goodbye Berlin is now scheduled for release in February.
This will be followed by our mega project, which will see Parralox covering all 16 tracks from the The Human League's Special Edition of their seminal Travelogue album.

Enjoy your holidays, and take care of yourselves and your loved ones.
❤️ John, Johanna and Louise.

about

Parralox Melbourne, Australia

If ever there was a new electronic pop band to encapsulate and emulate the legendary stylings of Depeche Mode, The Human League, Erasure, New Order, Pet Shop Boys and the spirit of Madonna in her 80s day-glo era, then Australia’s Parralox are that modern-day reincarnation. ... more
