Peter Schilling - "The Different Story (World of Lust & Crime)"


One of my favorite songs from the 80's (under the wire, it came out in Summer 1989). Most people, if they remember Peter Schilling at all, only know of "Major Tom (Coming Home)". I really don't care much for that song, but this one has always been a favorite. It was produced by Michael Cretu, the man behind Enigma.

Also, Peter Schilling is still making new music.

"The Different Story" - Peter Schilling

I'm so lonely on my way,
Waiting for a better day.
Only one thing left behind:
A world of lust and crime.

There's no place for me to hide.
I don't know what's wrong or right.
Pain and sorrow in my mind;
A world of lust and crime.

See the wise man in the graveyard;
Scream and cry the different story.
Lonely people in his old park
Know the answer just for everything.

Love turns a friendly card.
With a different story it'll open your heart.
Forever love is a dangerous game.
You don't have to worry 'cause it's easy to play.

There's a chance for me and you,
Making all our dreams come true.
Trust enough and you won't find
A world of lust and crime.

See the wise man in the graveyard;
Scream and cry the different story.
Lonely people in his old park
Know the answer just for everything.

Love turns a friendly card.
With a different story it'll open your heart.
Forever love is a dangerous game.
You don't have to worry 'cause it's easy to play.

See the wise man in the graveyard;
Scream and cry the different story.
Lonely people in his old park
Know the light of hope and glory.

Hey Michael,

WOW! I haven't heard this in a million years. It really brought back some memories.

I have to admitt that my favorite song from the eighties would have to be Absolute Beginers, by David Bowie, reason being that I love Bowie and because that song came out when Australia got hit by the first A.I.D.S tidal wave and took so many of my friends away from me, like it did too so many others. Even to this day when I hear that song, I can't help but weep a bit thinking back on how all those people were the "Absolute Beginers" and if it wasn't for them, we wouldn't know what we know now.

I love this song, too; yet I'd never seen the video before. Love the hat! And all these years I've been wondering what that white man was doing in the graveyard only to find out he was a wise man. I wonder what happened to the other two? Maybe they're back at the stable.

Ha, yes I always thought is was a 'white' man too.
