"Echo Beach" as written by and Mark Gane....
I know it's out of fashion
And a trifle uncool
But I can't help it
I'm a romantic fool
It's a habit of mine
To watch the sun go down
On Echo beach, I watch the sun go down

From nine till five I have to spend my time at work
The job is very boring, I'm an office clerk
The only thing that helps pass the time away
Is knowing I'll be back at Echo Beach some day

On a silent summer evening
The sky's alive with light
Building in the distance
Surrealistic sight
On Echo Beach
Waves make the only sound
On Echo Beach
There's not a soul around

From nine till five I have to spend my time at work
The job is very boring, I'm an office clerk
The only thing that helps pass the time away
Is knowing I'll be back at Echo Beach some day

Echo Beach
Far away in time
Echo Beach
Far away in time

    General CommentThis is one of those "Yearning for a faraway place" songs. I always find it bittersweet. I'm reminded of "Africa", by Toto. All of these songs are about lost childhood, or heaven, or something just over the horizon, or on the other side of the mirror.

    General Commentthis song is really catchy, and it's too bad that most people have pretty much forgotten about the Muffins, and other canadian groups (the spoons, the arrows) for their contributions to the pop/rock and new wave scenes in the 70s and 80s. go buy M+Ms anthology on amazon.com and cheeck em out, for either nostaglia or discovery. Seriously it's really solid.

    Some one (preferably not me) should post the lyrics to Paint By Number Heart, which is my favorite Muffins song of all time. Hehe :)
