Parralox - Boys and Girls

Boys and Girls

Written by Philip Oakey & Adrian Wright.

Boys and girls come out to play, playing till they're old and grey
Time to leave the old school suit, grown ups can be real cute
Do you think they're wiser than in the past
How long do you think it's gonna last
I don't have to prove to you adults can be kidding too

Boys and girls I love you dearly
But I hate to have you near me
Boys and girls - ahh
Boys and girls - ahh
Boys and girls - ahh

Boys and girls stay home today
Think they're more mature that way
Secret friends can soon be found
Indiscretions underground
Maybe growing up can seem more graceful
If they make their style become more tasteful
With your looks you could go far
But better watch the calendar-iahhh

(The Sound of Death Approaching)

Boys and girls I love you dearly
But I hate to have you near me
Boys and girls - ahh
Boys and girls - ahh
Boys and girls - ahh

Boys and girls I love you dearly
But I hate to have you near me

Boys and girls I love you dearly
But I hate to have you near me
Boys and girls - ahh
Boys and girls - ahh
Boys and girls - ahh

Additional Info:

Recorded for our cover of the classic Travelogue album, which The Human League originally released in 1979.
Released on Compact Disc on conzoom Records. The Deluxe Edition includes 3 Limited Edition CDs.

Keen fans of the The Human League will spot where I came up with the idea for this cover artwork.

Sunday the 26th of July, 2020.
Went for a walk this morning to buy some lunch, and along Swanston Street I bumped into Venus! Small world.
We sat at the tram stop and had a 711 coffee and watched the Popo beep their horns at all the homeless people on the sidewalk who weren't wearing facemasks.
We then walked around to Elizabeth Street and I got some Chicken Katsu curry, all the while thinking of Mike and Nic and our wonderful times in Japan. Well, all except for the first time we went there and it was hotter than the inside of the sun.
I came back to the studio and started work on this track at 1232.
I sang some guide vocals but they are a bit rough because I didn't do any warm ups.
I finished V1 and it's printing now at 1513 hours as I type these notes.
Jack is now looking at me with his goo-goo eyes and getting all excited. I think it's time for another walk!
Monday the 27th of July, 2020
1953 hours. I just finished V3 of the song. I'm printing all the various parts now. Earlier in the day I finished all the editing for the megamixes for the Neon Nights podcast this week, as well as finishing the show for this coming Saturday. We are premiering the new Huguenot song - You Made My Day (Wayne Numan Remix). I spoke to Costa on the phone for a while. I also spoke to John Collins and he played me the remix of Goodbye Berlin that he started yesterday. It sounds pretty good so far.
Jack has been barking at noises outside the studio. I can't really hear what he's barking at.
Last night after working in the studio I downloaded the trial version of Topaz Video Enhance AI, as I really want to see how well it will upscale Star Trek Deep Space Nine and Babylon 5 to 4K / HD. We all know that Paramount will never release DS9 / VOY in HD on Bluray, so I guess it's up to the fans to do it themselves.
