A mystery for you audiophiles.

Came across this the other day...and thought I'd post this mystery to give our ATS music experts a crack at it.
It seems experts have been trying to identify this song for over 40 years...with entire staffs of music institutions working, full-time, to identify it.

Does it come from another timeline/dimension?
To date...it remains a mystery.

THE MOST MYSTERIOUS SONG ON THE INTERNET:
www.youtube.com...



For those who are asking yourself what's so mysterious about this song: Well, this song was recorded from a German radio station called NDR, between 1982 - 1984, and until now, nobody was able to identify who is the author of this song, the title, the nationality, the year of release, the name of the band... Well, not even an information about it.

It's been 13 years of search, and nobody found any information about this song on the internet.

We were able to find the person who recorded it from the radio, this person also can't say who is the owner of the song! It's literally a ghost song from another dimension.




Analyzing the lyrics of this song, we can deduce that this song talks about sad things, and probably about tragedies. Possibly this lyrics makes high references to wars, or something that "destroys" us humans. All researchers agreed that this song talks about the Cold War, psychological trauma and about how many lives were lost during the war.


INTERPRETED LYRICS:

Like the wind,
You came here runnin',
Take the consequence forever.

There's no space,
There's no tomorrow,
There's no sense...?

Check it in, turn it all,
And the sun will never shine.
They're a long way away,
In the subways of your mind.

Like the wind,
You're gonna suffer/somewhere,
Let us drown in your own failure. - (Not sure, 99% inaudible verse)

There's no place/blames,
And there's no sorrow,
In the young and restless dreamer.

Check it in, turn it down,
And the sun will never shine.
Another any way,
In the subways of your mind.

[INSTRUMENTAL SOLO]

Check it in, turn it down,
But the sun will never shine.
Another any way,
In the subways of your mind.

Check it in, check it out
It's the summer blues/With sun or moon?
Tear it in, tear it out
It's reading you

Check it in, check it out
It's the summer blues/With sun or moon?
Tear it in, tear it out
It's reading you

Check it in, check it out
It's the summer blues/With sun or moon?
Tear it in, tear it out
It's reading you

Check it in, check it out
It's the summer blues/With sun or moon?
Tear it in, tear it out
It's reading you,
Another any way
In the subways of your mind.

Check it in, check it out
It's the summer blues/With sun or moon?
Tear it in, tear it out
It's reading you

Check it in, check it out
It's the summer blues/With sun or moon?
Tear it in, tear it out
It's the real excuse.

Check it in, check it out
It's the summer blues/With sun or moon?
Tear it in, tear it out
It's the real excuse.

Check it in, check it out
It's the summer blues/With sun or moon?
Tear it in, tear it out
It's the real excuse.

Some kids gave a demo tape to a radio station.

Radio station guy: "no one will ever listen to this crap but I'll play it for you"

40 years later

The internet: "More please"

My guess:
Cold War era...Germany...could be spy stuff...communicating Coded messages to operatives.

I am not a music expert but I love any kind of music that has flow, rhythm, nice patterns. In my mind I see shapes and color when I hear sounds.

This is my impression:
Could not make it through it. It sounds like 80s gay rock a bit but that is not the reason. I could enjoy the guitar but the overall feeling and impression was jittery. No warm colors, mostly blue and white. The high frequency sound that is introduced here and there completely kills it for me. It felt like a bad fever dream.

It was an experience but I pass on hearing it again.


dreading... that is the word I looked for.

+1 to the demo tape idea.
Just some kids who tried to start a band, but their music just didn't cut it.

it is not in any way "literally a ghost song from another dimension."

A garage band from Riverside California in 1978 called Calusa.

Agreed in that I could not make it through that song, and how bad it made me feel


I also agree with FauxMulder in that the song is most likely a demo from some kids.

Cool topic though! Thanks, TAT!

ETA: The feeling I got from that song was very much like how music made by a.i. makes me feel. Here's a remedy for soulless music

It sounds like mediocre 80's synth-pop. Bland, unremarkable and quite unappealing and more than a tad depressing. Quite similar to much of the music in the 80's I guess. My guess is that the artist is unknown because nobody wanted to be associated with this song.

To me, the song sounds like one used in "Eddie and the Cruisers" by John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band. I can't be for sure, my memory isn't what it used to be. But it is about the same timeline... IDK

"From another dimension." Seriously? People believe that? SMH

I'm pretty sure that nobody was supposed to take that line seriously.

The intro sounds a tad like Cutting Crew's - I Just Died In Your Arms, from about the same timeline.

People write songs all the time, this one generated interest about three decades later. It makes me sad sometimes when I think about the good songs that were never recorded and the ones out there that I haven't heard yet.

Sounds exactly like anything and everything new wave I would have listened to between 1982 and 1987.
If I had to compare the voice of the vocalist....I'd say Depeche Mode.
My guess as to the mystery is that it was an early track by someone who went on to be successful but they hate it and don't want to admit it's them.
Edit to add...
Listening to the mysterious song immediately took me back to this.

My money is on this being The Smith's early work release.

Reminds me of something that might have played on a John Peel Sessions on BBC Radio 1.

Too bad John's dead or he might remember it.

BBC 1 also played throughout Europe.

I also wonder if the local German town had a College Radio station where this might have been recorded from.

I've solved it! It's freaking Ricky Gervais!

Look him up on YouTube! He was in an 80s Synth Pop band called Seona Dancing.

I could totally see Ricky doing this for a laugh.

I totally misread the title as "The Most Mysterious Dong On The Internet" and seriously questioned if I should click.

Good thing I re-read the title just to be sure XD
