"Good evening. This is the intergalactic operator. Can I help you?"
"Yes. I'm trying to reach flight commander P.R. Johnson, on Mars, flight 2-4-7."
"Very well, hold on please [beeping] you're through!"
"Thank you, operator!"

Hi darlin'! How are you doing?
Hey baby, were your sleeping?
Oh, I'm sorry, but I've been really missing you!

Hi darlin'! How's the weather?
Say baby, is that cold better now ?
Oh, I'm sorry, is there someone there with you?

Ooooh...since you went away, there's nothing goin' right!
I just can't sleep alone at night... I'm not ashamed to say
I badly need a friend...or it's the end.

Now, when I look at the clouds across the moon
Here in the night I just hope and pray that soon
Oh baby, you'll hurry home to me

Hi darlin', the kids say they love you
Hey baby, is everything fine with you?
Please forgive me, but I'm trying not to cry

Ooooh... I've had a million different lovers on the phone
But I just stayed right here at home
I don't think that I can take it anymore, this crazy war

Now, when I look at the clouds across the moon
Here in the night I just hope and pray that soon
Oh baby, you'll hurry home to me

"I'm sorry to interrupt your conversation, but we are
experiencing violent storm conditions in the asteroid belt at this
time. We may lose this valuable deep space communication link.
Please, be as brief as possible.
Thank you."

Ooooh... since you went away, there's nothing goin' right!
I just can't sleep alone at night... I'm not ashamed to say
I badly need a friend...or it's the end.

Or it's...or it's...
"Hello? Hello operator? Yes, we've lost the connection! Could you try again please?"
"I'm sorry, but I'm afraid we've lost contact with Mars 2-4-7
at this time."


"Ok. Thank you very much...
I'll...I'll try again next year...next year...next year...next year..."

Now, when I look at the clouds across the moon
Here in the night I just hope and pray that soon
Oh baby, you'll hurry home to me

Now, when I look at the clouds across the moon
Here in the night I just hope and pray that soon
Oh baby, you'll hurry home to me

Now, when I look at the clouds across the moon
Here in the night I just hope and pray that soon
Oh baby, you'll hurry home to me

    My OpinionExcelente e inolvidable tema de RAH BAND. La cual, desde un lejano futuro, relata las aventuras y desventuras del comandante P.R. Johnson, y de su incondicional y sufrida esposa. Cabe destacar que "Clouds Across The Moon" cuenta, a modo de saga, con dos capitulos mas, lo cual hace de esta una trilogia musical de Ci Fi. Y digo Ci Fi porque el comandante debe de partir rumbo a una cruenta guerra intergalactica mas alla de los confines de Alfa Centauri, lo cual, implica dejar solos en la Tierra a su adorable esposa, y a sus aun pequeños niños. Pero, hay que destacar, que este drama esta visto desde el punto de vista de la esposa del Sr. Johnson, la cual, a modo de una Penelope del futuro, espera interminables años la llegada de su esposo ( de hecho la segunda parte de "Clouds Across The Moon" se realizo 15 años despues ). Esta mirada femenina le da un punto de giro con respecto al estilo narrativo de la historia, ya que ocurre el mismo fenomeno que con "STAR WARS", que si bien se parece, no es "Ciencia Ficcion", sino una "SOAP OPERA". Redondeando. La odisea del Comandante P.R. Johnson y de su esposa, es en si una balada desde lo musical, y una Soap Opera desde lo narrativo. De este modo podemos disfrutar de esta cancion y de sus dos otras continuaciones, desde diferentes puntos de vista: desde lo narrativo, y lo musical.
    Pero ¿ que paso con el Comandante P.R. Johnson ? desaparecio? regreso a casa?; y Miss Johnson ¿ resistio tantos años de soledad? o acaso se rindio a los deseos de la carne?
    TO BE CONTINUE . .
