Electric to me turn

Electric to me turn this night
Reflecting universal light
All I knew that should be true
Is reality in you
Turn! Turn to me... electric!

Electric to me turn and see
The universe reflecting me
All I am I would not be
Without your electricity
Turn! Turn to me... electric!


This is the begining of the first track in Bruce Haack's 1970 record Electric Lucifer, and has become one of my favorite songs. Haack was an early electronic musician, and composer of quite odd and futuristic music for children (starchildren, actually). He's always been a rather reclusive character, and purposedly keept away from the mainstream of entretainment industry. Now he's gaining more recognition, and his records are becoming widely available. There's also a tribute record and a documentary.

Search for Haack's records in P2P networs, he'd be more than happy to know that people is sharing his music. I assure you, we're the starchildren this music was originally intended for.
