Forever Young
First Harvest
a note about this track

"Forever Young" is the title track from German rock/synthpop group Alphaville's 1984 debut album. Though it was not the group's highest-charting European hit and failed to reach the American Top 40 despite three separate U.S. single releases, "Forever Young" became something of a pop standard and has been covered by numerous artists since its 1984 debut.
