Neon Socks
on: September 17, 2020, 22:33:24
Hi everyone,

This is my love letter not only to the eighties, but also to the beachside Butlins type of holidays I went on as a kid here in the UK.

All thoughts are welcome.😊👍🏻


On the beachfront there was a telescope
And for a coin, being boys weíd check out girls
While listening to the radio
Just young guns, waiting for a star to fall.

UK summer
Think it was 1989
Dodgy weather
Had to wear coats sometimes
Didnít matter
We were all having such a good time yeah..

Just one smile had me shook
She crashed a bumper car into my heart
Knocked my neon socks right off
Won her a Smurf in the arcade
She beat my high score on Robocop
Then kissed me under seashell stars
Anastasia...never forgot her.

For a week we all were inseparable
Chasing waves, rollerblades and
Who framed Roger Rabbit at the cinema
Oh how I prayed the days would never end.

It was summer
Think it was 1989
Double trouble
Caught sneaking out that night
Roller disco
Everybody literally falling in love.


Anastasia, I wonder where you are
So many years have passed
But I never forgot
My first love.

Lyrics/melody Leo Bull. Produced by Leo Bull/Neil Connor

Hola @LostBoy
I haven't heard you for a long time, I'm glad to see you here with your new song.
I liked the sound, it is soft, nothing shrill but it has strength.
I love the choirs and the lyrics are very descriptive, a very luminous love words,

Be safe

I did not know that to live I had to die so many times

@LostBoy - What a great track! I love the lyrics & storytelling... I like it how the listener is immediately completely immersed in a mix of fun, adventure and nostalgia! ...That instrumental is really cool and I dig your harmonies... I really enjoyed listening! :D

Great storytelling  in a very catchy pop package @LostBoy ...high energy comes through your vocals and the arrangement .
Its all good- including the more sophisticated bridge :pompom: :pompom:
I`m not sure I want to be reminded of my own memories of Pontins holidays ( a bit before your  era)... the suddenly unavoidable contact wth so many girls; those keen and officious Blue Coat supervisors... you know what I mean :yes:
A great change of pace from your folky material I`m familiar with.

Love it. With a real 80ís vibe.
What I understand from @Mora Amaro La Loba youíve been not present enough, thatís why I have to deduct two bonus points.
But otherwise a lovely song @LostBoy !
Kind regards, Gus
