"Living On Video" as written by and Pascal Languirand....
Give me light
give me action
at the touch of a button.
Flying through hyper-space
in a computer interface.
Stop - living on video
stop - integrated circuits.
Stop - sur un faisceau de lumieres
stop - is this reality?

Traveling in a light beam
laser rays and purple skies.
In a computer fairyland
it is a dream you bring to life.
Stop - living on video
stop - integrated circuits. . . .
stop - sur un
faisceau de lumieres
stop - is this reality?


I see your glitterring blue eyes
you look at me with a smile.
It's a computer fantasy
it is waiting for you and me.
Living - living on video
living - living on video

Living - living on video
living - living on video - stop. . . .

    General CommentTo me, this is a quintessential example of '80s new-wave electronica. I remember listening to this, appropriately, as I was studying computer science in college. One of my favorites to this day.

    Anyway, this song is discussing both the appeal ("In a computer fairyland
    It is a dream you bring to life.") and the dangers ("Stop - is this reality?") of a digitally-focused life, like the kind many of us live nowadays -- and the song is from 1981!

    One last note: "sur un faisceau de lumieres" translates to "on a beam of light".
