It was back in the mid-1980s that I first heard the song COMMUNICATION by THE POWER STATION. I was getting ready to graduate from High School and enter the US Army. I was full of young energy and ready to hit the ground running. It was not until I reach West Berlin, Germany that I realized what the message of the song was all about.

The Message of this song is the message.

This song might sound like a simple love song about someone not wanting to lose touch with a loved one. This song goes a little deeper and it has become the foundation of what COLD STEEL MEDIA is all about: “Our communication must get through. Our communication depends on me and you…”

Though this song was written and records in the 1980s it is if it was written for today. Then again, the message is timeless. Communication is how things happen. Communication is how we grow. Communication is how we become better.  I recommend you listen to the song and read the lyrics below. Thanks, David

 

“COMMUNICATION” by The Power Station

Airmail, cassettes, postcards, telex
Drop me a line need my grapevine
I’m always trying to reach you
Can’t get through
Our communication depends on me and you
Got to stay in touch even though you’re on the move
Keep your lines open say what’s new
Exchange the facts
Keep in contact
I keep on trying to call you but I can’t get through
Our communication must get through
Communication
Don’t hang up
Communication
Keep in touch
Communication
Don’t put me on hold
Situation
Soul to soul
Send word, stay tuned
Call me real soon
Every time I phone you
You’re not home
We’ve got to stay in touch on the telephone
I keep on trying to reach you
But I can’t get through
Our communication must get through
Communication
Baby talk to me
Communication

Communication
Don’t put me on hold
Situation
Soul to soul
Communication

Communication
Don’t put me on hold

Communication
