This is from Saga's 1981 album Worlds Apart. I thought it would be cool to upload so, why not.

As a professional musician (drummer, drum tech, and occasional rhythm guitar player) I have to say that this song, is one of the best ever to come out of the 80's and really solidifies it's place in rock and Canada's music history.. I remember when this came out.. I was only 12 and always wondered what kind of percussive drum sounds he was using.. As i got older i wanted a set of those electronic drums because i thought they were so cool and that i would look cool playing them..When i found out how much they cost at the time, i was depressed cause i knew i would never be able to afford them with my measly summer job pennies, and there was no way my folks would spend $1500 on them.. I had to settle for a $500 made in Taiwan wood shell drum kit.. Now that these electronic drums are considered obsolete, they ironically go for pennies now , but they are few and far between.. If i ever find a set, i may just snag them up.. With that being said, that is my stroll down memory lane with this song, and Saga, who i consider to be a hybrid of Rush meets Yes meets Queen.. ;)

There's no reason why Saga shouldn't have been bigger in the USA.

This is an amazing song. Between the 60's and the 80's, Canada produced some of the best musicians, like Saga I'm 32 and because I listened to what my mom listened to when I was younger, that's where my love of older classics like this come from. I would say 80 percent of my playlist is music like this. So, so good. Thanks for sharing this kind of music with the masses :)

There have been so many really good bands/singers coming out of Canada over the years.  What's the deal?  Must be something in the water.   The music was ABOUT something, too.  Cerebral.

It's not hard to see why Saga did so well in Germany, because their music has a very Teutonic, Euro-pop/rock kind of sound, and the lead singer even sounds like he could be a German who has a very good command of English. I remember when I heard this song for the first time, and after learning of the name of the band I thought that the band was German, not Canadian. As an aside, 'saga' means the same in German as it does in English.
