OH URANIA by ANDREW GOLD. A song about hope that there is life out there -- up in the stars. Andrew on piano, clavinet, synthesizer and background vocals... Leland Sklar on bass, Russell Kunkel on drums. To finish off the lyrics Andrew needed a 3 syllable word about astronomy and Urania (Goddess of Astronomy) worked just fine. From 'All This and Heaven Too" - Elektra
