    A great track from a great album. TH honing his talents after having had a close shave with Yes. Laid the foundations for a decade or more of top drawer work, Art of Noise, Pet Shop Boys, Frank ie...

    ​​​​​​... Oh and, YES!

    The second greatest car honk in a song in history, behind Don't Go!

    Swelling, woozy,genre busting electro-pop-prog masterpiece.

    Sail the sandyacht across the sweating diamond...

    I think any song that has alligator and incubator as rhymes is asking for trouble...
    I don’t care if they rhyme it with big generator!

    Great song. The synth orchestra at the end sounds dated now, but was impressive back then.

    The Buggles - Vermillion Sands

    My heart is an alligator
    Better watch your step - watch your step
    This heat is an incubator
    Make a diamond sweat - wanna bet
    Live life like you're flying solo
    Never in the net - in the net

    Dancing in silence the orchestra late
    In the Essoldo or down by the lake
    I don't care

    Take me to Vermilion Sands
    Hold me in familiar hands
    Take me to Vermilion Sands

    Sandyacht on a thermal roller
    We were never there - never there
    Live life like you're flying solo
    Never in the air - in the air

    Dancing in silence the orchestra late
    In the Essoldo or down by the lake
    I don't care

    Take me to Vermilion Sands
    Hold me in familiar hands
    Take me to Vermilion Sands

    My heart is an alligator
    Better watch your step - watch your step
    This heat is an incubator
    Make a diamond sweat - wanna bet

    Take me to Vermilion Sands
    Hold me in familiar hands
    Take me to Vermilion, take me to Vermilion Sands
    Hold me in familiar hands
    Take me to Vermilion Sands, sands, sands
Working...
