Song of the Day - Asia - Don't Cry

Song of the Day - Asia - Don't Cry

I was looking at Asia thinking I really wanted to pick something from them. Loved them for years and years and finally got to see them live last year. Bucket list thing for me.

Anyway Alpha was the first Asia album I heard. I bought it cause I liked the album cover. I was shallow back then. :) But then I was looking through the list of tracks and how the hell do you choose? Every song on that album is a worthy pick. And then I started searching YouTube and discovered this gem. OMG I had no idea there was a music video for Don't Cry. And it's an awesomely bad Indiana Jones rip off featuring bad acting, bad special effects and some sets worthy of early Doctor Who. And I realised another thing too. Steve Howe has always looked old.
