I love Night Time Eclipse of Timo kotipelto, this song is excellent and I don't talk about Eternity because Excellent would be a little word. I guess "Amazing" is the perfect word and is little still. :?



ETERNITY IS EXCELLENT!!!

a) who wrote "Tomorrow" (one of my fav songs)
can someone answer this, please?
The lyrics of "Tomorrow" and some parts of the lyrics of "Father Time" are made by Finnish singer & vocals consultant Richard "Tipe" Johnson. He may be known best as the vocalist in Leningrad Cowboys.

I´m sorry about b), haven´t got that too... :?

Hmm, I always thought, they misspelled Johansson. Thanks for the info.

It's Jorg speaking. He says: Can you do this louder for me? Then he says something Italian .... thank you very much.... Italian again...Then he says something about the people screaming so that they are louder than some other people...
And finally what he says is: We have good and we have bad news...Bad news is the drum solo hasn't ended, good news no bass solo...
That's basically it...

Yeah, but as we know, these are his solosongs, not Stratovarius´s songs. :wink:

I´d choose Run Away too, if voting for the most awful non-Tolkki song. :P

Yes, I just don´t like it. Specially I don´t like the dance-oriented beat and the way how TK´s voice is mixed. IMHO it doesn´t suit as a Strato-song...

which part of that song do you consider as dance oriented beat ?

i admit, some elements of that song - like some background keys - are not typical strato, there you´re right, i think.

This is also my opinion. There' s an untypical lightness in this song 8) . It' s been one of my Strato alltime fav's... so one more vote for Jens - sorry TK - like your music as well.

And at least I recommend you not to hear it, hearing it is totally lack of time. :P

...except you would like to build up your own mind... :wink: I also dislike a bunch of songs, but I haven't heard songs from Strato that would have made my ears bleeding.

Well, I think the best song of those wrote there is What Can I Say?, but my vote went to Glory of the World. Basically, nowadays I'm still not able to listen to that song... it was an important song for me and my ex-girlfriend, and well, you know... That song still reopens some almost healed wounds...

So let's vote for the god Johansson!!! Their solos in Glory of the World are just amazing! I'd give anything to listen that song live on the next tour! Take note of that, Jens :wink:

What can I Say?
Dream with Me
Falling Into Fantasy(Wasn't that written by Koti?)
I like Keep the Flame, too.
and, Why are We Here?

Didn't Jens write, The Curtains Are Falling? I like that song very much.

Add a few more by Jens&Koti, and YES!

btw, alot of good StratoSongs were written jointly by TT&TK. I wonder what percentage of lyrics each guy wrote? And, how does that figure into the equation? ???

The direction I see Strato going in is more destiny/infinite like if I had to compare it to an album, but Ride Like the Wind, Return of Salieri, Glory of the World, are the songs that sound the most to me like what Strato will likely become, I don't see the Uncertainty, Keep the Flame, What can I saw, Dream with Me, direction prevailing.
