Peter Sarstedt - As Though It Were A Movie mp3 album

Download MP3. Peter Sarstedt.

Peter Sarstedt's debut album was torpedoed by its best track, the number one hit "Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)," an exquisite piece of baroque pop that Sarstedt would never come close to equaling again. Led by a festive accordion and a dark acoustic guitar, the song blended the reserve of early British singer/songwriters with the sophistication of Continental pop - name-checking everyone from Marlene Dietrich to Sacha Distel and the Boulevard Saint Michel. Its successor, As Though It Were a Movie, which arrived shortly afterwards, features no good follow-up to the single, but it's actually a better full-length statement. Based around an imaginary movie (complete with overture, intermission, and closing national anthem), the record finds Sarstedt doing a better job of inhabiting his narrative songs (as on the leering "Take Off Your Clothes"). Track Listing - Disc 1. Title/Composer.

He lived his life As though it was a movie Humphrey Bogart Was his god. He'd become the book That he was reading He locked his mind in Fantasy. He lived his life As though it was a movie Humphrey Bogart Was his god. He'd become the book That he was reading Locked his mind in Fantasy. But he never complained When it started to rain He just waited for the pennies from heaven. Wander down a corridor Carpeted from wall to wall Jump into a swimming pool And watch your mind swim. Living is a tragedy Though it doesn't mean to be Whaddya think your mother is And what is she for, heh. He'd become every book That he was a reading Locked his mind in Fantasy, yes, yes. Trouble Trouble Trouble Trouble Trouble. As Though It Were a Movie" Track Info.

The title track, "As though it were a movie" is THE song for which Peter should best be remembered, rather than the much more widely known hit single from his first LP, "Where do you go to my lovely". Not only does it have a great tune and equally good lyrics, it also has a great guitar part that utilises many of the then current vaguely psychedelic style of playing. Shame on BGO for not using the origianl mono mix of the LP that features this guitar part in a more prominent role. This is only a minor niggle though. Other songs from this LP still impress enormously. Great value for money, this double album contains completely re mastered versions of the original 'Peter Sarstedt' and 'As though it were a movie' recordings of the 1960's. Between them these two albums capture the creativity, style, imagination and off the wall humour that made Peter famous.
