Alan Parsons wordt op 20 december 1947 geboren in Londen en is bekend als componist, producer en musicus. Hij produceerde onder meer Dark Side Of The Moon, het beroemde album van Pink Floyd.

In de jaren '70 richt hij zijn eigen band The Alan Parsons Project op. Na een voorzichtige start in ons land (in 1980 blijft The Turn Of A Friendly Card in de Tipparade steken) is het eind 1982 raak met Old And Wise, dat het tot nummer 19 in de Top 40 schopt. Zijn grootste hit is echter Don't Answer Me uit 1984, dat de top 7 bereikt. In 1985 volgt nog een bescheiden hit: Let's Talk About Me piekt op nummer 31.


Songtekst

If you believe in the power of magic
I can change your mind
And if you need to belive in someone
Turn and look behind
When we were living in a dream world
Clouds got in the way
We gave it up in a moment of madness
And threw it all away

Don't answer me, don't break the silence
Don't let me win
Don't answer me, stay on your island
Don't let me in

Run away and hide from everyone...
Can you change the things we've said and done?

If you belive in the power of magic
It's all a fantasy
So if you need to belive in someone
Just pretend it's me
It ain't enough that we meet as strangers
I can't set you free
So will you turn your back forever
On what you mean to me?

Don't answer me, don't break the silence
Don't let me win
Don't answer me, stay on your island
Don't let me in

Run away and hide from everyone...
Can you change the things we've said and done?

Don't answer me, don't break the silence
Don't let me win
Don't answer me, stay on your island
Don't let me in

Run away and hide from everyone...

Don't answer me, don't break the silence
Don't let me win
Don't answer me, stay on your island
Don't let me in

Can you change the things we've said and done?

Don't answer me, don't break the silence
Don't let me win
Don't answer me, stay on your island
Don't let me in...
