"Taking Islands In Africa" as written by Ryuichi Sakamoto and David Sylvian....
Taking islands in Africa
Watch the slow boat hit and run

Outside there's a world waiting
I'll take it all by storm
And when the sunset finds me
I'm coming home

Taking islands in Africa
Watch the slow boat hit and run

Every day the sun beats down
I pull away from shore
The wind blows hard into my sails
Now I know I'm out of touch
And times they could get tough
But I'll move on so how could I fail?

Taking islands in Africa
Watch the slow boat hit and run

When the evening fires burn
The daylight dead and gone
With you beside me we can run

Outside there's a world waiting
I'll take it all by storm
And when the sunset finds me
I'm coming home

Taking islands in Africa
Watch the slow boat hit and run
Every day the sun beats down
I pull away from shore
The wind blows hard into my sails...

    My OpinionAs a fan of all new romantic 80s music, I feel that Japan were one of the best for one sole reason-they had a darker, more detached sound and look.

    This song is a gem as far as I'm concerned. Could never tire of it's pure genius.
