Alphaville - The Nelson Highrise (Sector One: The Elevator) 1984

This is not the original version from the b-side of "Sounds like a melody" - it's an Alphaville remix from a retrospective CD that comes pretty near to the original mix.

Hypnosis - Bormaz (1983)

That's the B-side of "Oxygene" - and a fantastic lasershow track in our hometown discotheque back in the 80s. Still and always lovely.
