For my new album project EQUINOXE INFINITY I started for the first time with the album cover not the music. I still think that Michael Granger who did the original EQUINOXE cover created one of the best album covers of all time. For the original it was all about the WATCHERs. These strange creatures watching us? Watching Space? Watching machines? Watching a natural phenomenon ? We don’t really know…they are not scary, but odd and mysterious. So I took the original Watchmen of the EQUINOXE cover to continue the story.

“Bette Davis Eyes” is a song written and composed by Donna Weiss and Jackie DeShannon, and made popular by American singer Kim Carnes. DeShannon recorded it in 1974; Carnes’s 1981 version spent nine weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was Billboard‘s biggest hit of 1981.
According to producer Val Garay, the original demo of the tune that was brought to him sounded like “a Leon Russell track, with this beer-barrel polka piano part.” The demo can be heard in a Val Garay interview on TAXI TV at 21:50. Keyboardist Bill Cuomo came up with the signature synth riff, using the Sequential Circuits Prophet-5 synthesizer, which now defines Carnes’s version. The song was recorded in the studio on the first take.
Revolution is a song by the British rock band The Cult.It was the third single from The Cult’s 1985 album Love, written by Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy.The song has been described as a “power ballad”. It has been noted that the chord progression in the song is the same as She Sells Sanctuary and Rain, the first two singles from the Love album.
Ceremony is the fifth studio album by rock band The Cult, first released on 23 September 1991.
The album was highly anticipated by both music critics and fans as a result of the band’s previous worldwide successes with their 1987 album Electric and its 1989 follow-up Sonic Temple. It was heavily inspired by Native American culture.
“Hard to Say I’m Sorry” is a song written by bassist Peter Cetera, who also sang lead on the track, and producer David Foster, for the group Chicago. It was released on May 16, 1982, as the lead single from the album Chicago 16. The song reached No. 1 for two weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart on September 11 of that year. It was their first top 50 hit since “No Tell Lover” in 1978, spent twelve weeks in the top 5 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal.The single was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) in September of the same year. Songwriter Cetera, a member of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP), won an ASCAP Pop Music Award for the song in the category, Most Performed Songs.
“The Flame” is a power ballad written by British songwriters Bob Mitchell and Nick Graham. The song was first offered to English singer Elkie Brooks, who turned it down, and was then released by Cheap Trick, for whom it was a hit single in 1988. The song appeared on the band’s Lap of Luxury album.
“The Flame” reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in July 1988, becoming the band’s only number one hit. It also reached number one in Australia and Canada.
