Real Life – Babies (US 12″)

Some more from Real Life from 1986 and a bit of a classic antiwar anthem with the most bizarre, banal lyrics!! Again there is a rockier “Rock Mix” and full-on synth “Club Mix” Epic production by Ross Fraser with the remix by Boris Granich and Christer Modig (KROQ DJ Swedish Chris)

“We are , we are bleeding babies! In a Playground Battlefield!” I’ll sing this in the shower tomorrow morning!

“Exploding Bullets” get’s a remix by original producer Steve Hillage and is much less cringe worthy (just). Ah, those 80’s synths sing to me!

  1. Dunno about the banal lyrics, but this song is perfect in my book! It should’ve been massive – or, at least, on the level of “Send Me an Angel”‘s success. Great catchy track that sticks to your brain – and Rock Mix is how it sounds best.

  2. Great Song Man!!!, can you re upload please?… link is not working.. Greetings!

    1. Re-upped for ya 🙂

      1. Thanks!!
