"the watcher and the tower waiting hour by hour"

To menu    Mike Oldfield's Fans love him, especially as instrumentalist, composer. But Mike is an author of lyrics of most his songs so we decided to make speciall place, dedicated to all Mike Oldfield's lyrisc

    At the beginning, we show You some crazy statistics. In discussion group "Amarok", somebody said, that Oldfield hadn't created songs about love. It started big discussion. We didn't make interpretation of lyrics (wchich is sometimes very difficult in Oldfield creations), and started to find word "love" in lyrics. Thats our scores:

  1. The nost "love" album is "Earth Moving"
  2. There is no song with word "love" in title (except "Sallyangie" becouse it depeded of Sally)
  3. There are eleven songs of sixty contain word "love". It's equals 18% of Oldfield's creation are "love songs"
  4. There are eleven composition of one hudred seventy six (exclude rarities) contain word "love" - 6.25% "love compositions"

    A conclusion is: Mike isn't the biggest romantic of the world, but we think, that he knows something about love. In fact, you don't need talk about feelings directly

    Before we invite You to reading of lyrics, we want to present You citat from interview with Barry Palmer, one of vocalists related with Mike Oldfield

    "If I have a complaint about Mike, the lyrics are often difficult to understand. (...) On the other hand he doesn't have to write a story that I understand, a story which workds in the context on his music, so I can't complain at all. He must know what can be understood and what can't be understood, it's his decision when he is writing it. It's his music and it makes it more mysterious and it make you finding your own meanings and that's probably part of what he does. It can mean something to you and maybe something different for me, and that's in another way quite clever I think. (...) But I like his lyrics in the way it matches to his music and if you want to be a song write the lyrics have to match absolutely to the music, if you don't understand that it's tough. Mike is very good on that." (Barry Palmer, September 1997)
