Song of the day: Mike Oldfield- Shadow On The Wall


Yeah! A big man back in the eighties, and I can’t think of any reason why he should not have been a hit machine… of course there are other songs I could have featured, like Moonlight Shadow or Tubular Bells, but it’s this song which is my favourite. It has his voice, which has that special sound, the synthesizer sounds in the background, and then that characteristic “Shadow on the wall!” Do you have the picture? And then I’ve not talked about the text yet… No wonder of course, because I can’t make anything out of that. If I had to analyze this text, I would probably get stuck. It’s mostly Shadow On The Wall, but what the rest has to do with it? No idea.

Doesn’t matter, just enjoy:
