Night flight to Venus and Rasputin
You hear this at your friend’s house first, on a small mono record player. The second time on a better system at another classmate’s place who keeps talking about how he wrote down the lyrics after listening to it only a few times. Some people said they ‘spoke’ with their guitars in this song, the countdown etc. Much later you’d learn about synthesizers. It’s the first time you’re hearing a string beat like this. It’s followed by a song about Russians, some love machine, Moscow chicks. Words don’t matter as much as the rhythm. And it does sound good.
