Song #54: "Time Again"--Asia (1982)

Four songs from Asia's fantastic debut album 35 years ago landed in the Top 500, and today, it's the third of those songs, an anthem of defiance for all lovers, or friends, who found out they've been betrayed, sometimes, over and over and over.

The music here is incredible, especially the opening, building and building, all the while setting the stage for about five minutes of an emotional outpouring, everything you wanted to say to the one who jilted you, betrayed you, but hadn't, or couldn't.

On top of that, it's just good early 1980's rock and roll. And, as I mentioned with Pat Benatar back on Saturday, here's another case where a song like "Heat of The Moment" from the same release has just been heard way too many times on radio. Time and time again, you might say. :)

We'll hear from Asia once more later this spring, and I will admit, it was very close between "Time Again", and the song still to be revealed, as to which was my all-time favorite from this "shooting star" of a group from the early 1980's.
