Music Mondays # 11: Tasmin Archer – Sleeping Satellite

By | 11:36 4 comments

This tune is such a classic !!! Brings back memories from back in the early 90’s for me :) I used to listen to this track on a cassette !!! Yup – I’d just gotten my own stereo and raided my mom’s music collection and discovered this track on a cassette and fell in love with it !

Back in school – I used to sing – solos and in the choir – and for our music class – we all had to pick a solo track to perform … I chose this tune and got a fantastic ovation for it too !! I just sang right now to see if I remembered it – and I can !!! Now I just need to find the nerve to sing in front of an audience again (hmmm not quite sure when I got worried about singing in public !! but it has happened over the last decade or so)

The lyrics are haunting – I just love it ! Growing up, I always wondered about the meanings behind the song and never really quite got my finger on it.  Whilst browsing online for the song – I came across a few interpretations that I’d never really given a thought to.

What do you think about the track ? When was the first time you heard it ? Any memories that come to mind when you hear it ?
