Above & Beyond Acoustic – Alone Tonight (Live At The Hollywood Bowl) 4K

Posted by

Known collectively as Above & Beyond, Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness and Paavo Siljamäki make up one of the world’s most successful dance acts, with recent artist album “Common Ground” entering the Billboard 200 at number three. In 2016 the Grammy-nominated trio left the electronic music world behind. Above & Beyond Acoustic: Giving Up The Day Job follows the group’s unlikely journey from the DJ booth to the Hollywood Bowl, from the initial re-imagining of songs at Abbey Road Studios, through to their presentation at iconic global venues such as London’s Royal Albert Hall, the Sydney Opera House and finally the Hollywood Bowl. With a travelling party of 17 musicians plus a 34-piece orchestra in LA, the new film is an intimate, behind-the-scenes look at one of the world’s biggest dance acts as they risk it all to go acoustic.

Above & Beyond Acoustic: Giving Up the Day Job was directed by award-winning directors Paul Dugdale and Myles Desenberg. Paul Dugdale with Scheme Engine (Ed Sheeran: Jumpers For Goalposts, The Rolling Stones Olé, Olé, Olé!: A Trip Across Latin America) directed the live concert at The Hollywood Bowl, and Myles Desenberg of BAFTA-nominated production company Archer’s Mark, directed the tour documentary.

Lyrics

Slipping sideways silver stars collide

Fade away just like our love had died
And there is nowhere in this universe to hide from you tonight
I’ve wrestled with angels all my life
It’s always the halos and the wings that keep you blind

And if I fall with all the strength I held inside
I wouldn’t be out here alone tonight

I wouldn’t be standing alone tonight
I wouldn’t be standing alone tonight
I wouldn’t be standing alone tonight
I wouldn’t be standing alone tonight

Who

Alone tonight just like the western star, I’m sinking
The angels curse me blind with straight and crooked thinking
Alone tonight just like the western star, I’m sinking
The angels curse me blind with straight and crooked thinking

Fade away just like our love had died
And there is nowhere in this universe to hide from you tonight
I’ve wrestled with angels all my life
It’s always the halos and the wings that keep you blind

And if I fall with all the strength I held inside
I wouldn’t be out here alone tonight

Who

Alone tonight just like the western star, I’m sinking
The angels curse me blind with straight and crooked thinking
Alone tonight just like the western star, I’m sinking
The angels curse me blind with straight and crooked thinking

Who

And if I fall with all the strength I held inside
I wouldn’t be out here alone tonight
