    In this opportunity I present you a song from 1983, titled big in Japan by the German band Alphaville.

    In 1982, singer Marian Gold and keyboardist Bernhard Lloyd were part of a musical project called Nelson Community, there they formed a band called Chinchilla Green that did not prosper. That same year, Lloyd formed a band with Frank Mertens, another keyboardist, then they called Gold to be the singer, thus was born the band Forever Young, which would later be renamed as Alphaville.

    Alphaville is a German new wave band that was very popular in the 1980s. Their most popular songs were Big in Japan, Sounds Like a Melody and Forever Young, all contained on their 1984 debut album Forever Young.
    In 1983, Alphaville released their first single titled Big in Japan, which would soon become a worldwide hit and which along with Sounds Like a Melody would be a preview of their Forever Young album, which also included the hit of the same name. Despite the success obtained, Frank Mertens leaves the band and is replaced by Ricky Echolette on keyboards and guitar, who was their partner in Chinchilla Green.

    In 1986, they released another single called Dance with Me, which would be a great success, as a preview of their second album entitled Afternoons in Utopia. In 1988, they released a compilation containing all the band's singles up to that moment and, the following year, they released The Breathtaking Blue, which included the single Romeos.

    Alphaville took several years to release their next album, meanwhile, Marian Gold made a solo album in 1992. It was in 1994 when Alphaville made their fourth studio album, called Prostitute. In 1996, Ricky Echolette left the band but left some contributions for the album Salvation, which would be released the following year. Source

    En esta oportunidad te presento un tema del año 1983, titulado grande en Japón del grupo alemán Alphaville. esta canción me trae recuerdos de cuando estaba en sexto grado de la escuela, tenía 10 años de edad! Hoy te la presento al estilo venezolano, con Cuatro y mandolina, sobre la base de Bajo y batería.

    En 1982, el cantante Marian Gold y el teclista Bernhard Lloyd formaban parte de un proyecto musical llamado Nelson Community, allí formaron una banda llamada Chinchilla Green que no prosperó. Ese mismo año, Lloyd formó una banda con Frank Mertens, otro teclista, entonces ellos llamaron a Gold para que fuera el cantante, de esta manera nació la banda Forever Young, que más tarde sería rebautizada como Alphaville.

    Alphaville es una banda alemana de new wave que fue muy popular en la década de 1980. Sus canciones más populares fueron Big in Japan, Sounds Like a Melody y Forever Young, todas contenidas en su álbum debut Forever Young de 1984.
    En 1983, Alphaville edita su primer sencillo titulado Big in Japan, que pronto se convertiría en un éxito mundial y que junto con Sounds Like a Melody serían un anticipo de su álbum Forever Young, que incluía también el éxito del mismo nombre. Pese al éxito obtenido, Frank Mertens deja la banda y es reemplazado por Ricky Echolette en teclados y guitarra, quien fuera compañero de ellos en Chinchilla Green.

    En 1986, editan otro sencillo llamado Dance with Me que tendría gran éxito, como anticipo de su segundo álbum titulado Afternoons in Utopia. En 1988, editan un recopilatorio conteniendo todos los sencillos de la banda hasta ese momento y, al año siguiente, lanzan The Breathtaking Blue, que incluía el sencillo Romeos.

    Alphaville tardó varios años en editar su siguiente álbum, mientras tanto, Marian Gold realizó un disco en solitario en 1992. Es en 1994 cuando Alphaville realiza su cuarto álbum de estudio, llamado Prostitute. En 1996, Ricky Echolette abandonó la banda pero dejó algunas contribuciones para el álbum Salvation, que se editaría al año siguiente. Fuente
