#SLS ~ 10/10/21

Jim tells us, this week the theme is Heavenly Bodies, Planets, Moon, Sun, Stars suggested by King Benโ€™s Grandma. Oh the places we could go. I immediately thought of Children of the Sun by Billy Thorpe. I even broke my own rule of no song over 5 minutes long. My freshman year, we played this song on a loop. Later when I was at SAC and they had a contest to pick intro music for the remodeled Planetarium, my Astronomy class nominated this song. It didnโ€™t win but itโ€™s still a favorite to me.

People of the Earth can you hear me?
Came a voice from the sky on that magical night
And in the colors of a thousand sunsets
They traveled through the world on a silvery light

The people of the Earth stood waiting
Watching as the ships came one by one
Setting fire to the sky as they landed
Carrying to the world Children Of The Sun

All at once came a sound from the inside
Then a beam made of light hit the ground
Everyone felt the sound of their heartbeat
Every Man - Every Woman - Every Child

They passed the limits of imagination
Through the doors - to a world - of another time
On the journey of a thousand lifetimes
With the Children Of The Sun - They started their climb

No more gravity, nothing holding them down
Floating endlessly, as their ship leaves the ground
through the walls of time - at the speed of light
Fly the crystal ships on their celestial flight
On their celestial flight.

      1. What a very small world. I got my AA degree from there too. I really loved it. And I felt like I got personal attention. The classes were smaller than UTSA.

  1. This is a new one to me, Jill, and after looking it up I realize why. It was released in 1979 when I was a new mom and in a very chaotic time of my life. Funny how we can let music escape us at times like that.

    1. Very true and that in other instances, in a less chaotic time, where we remember the music. The summer of 1979 was idyllic for me. New beginnings. Anything was possible.

    1. You had such a good idea for the prompt. There were so many options. This song we would call a one hit wonder. Even though Billy did other stuff. The kids that I ran around with when this song came out, all thought we were being edgy. This song was an anthem for a while. ๐Ÿ˜Ž
