about

Only available in digital format!!!

A few months ago we told you about the release of “BMX Bandits In Space,” a marvelous pop opera that was really one of the high points of the already very prolific and inspired career of Duglas T Stewart. Our beloved and illustrious Scottish friend is back on the scene with a digital single that includes three fantastic songs that will, once again, make fans all over the world rejoice.

When we talked about his newest album, we specifically mentioned “All Around The World,” the title track of this single, as the essence of how the album feels – a precious melody elevated by THE BEATLES and Burt Bacharach, that opens with one of the most beautiful lines the author has ever written: I believe in beauty / and where ever it takes me / that’s where I’ll go. The first previously unreleased song is a remix of “Take Me to Heaven,” by Sebastian Litmanovich, which is to say CINEPLEXX, who could have already collaborated on the album with songs like “Look At You, Look At Me” or “Elegant Love.” This time he ads dreamy techno-pop details taken from “Bee Stings” to the song. Finally, there is a charming and elegant version of “Somebody Come And Play” by Joe Raposo, from the first season of Sesame Street, which was included on the album “The Sesame Street Book & Record,” the popular TV show’s first album, released in the summer of 1970. This time, Duglas T Stewart is accompanied by THE WELLGREEN, the band formed by Stuart Kidd and Marco Rea (who have also occasionally played with people like Stevie Jackson, of BELLE AND SEBASTIAN) to make a wonderful, delicious song that gets back to the purity and the grandeur of pop music made for children, but that is also equally as capable of getting grown-ups excited.

And so BMX BANDITS, despite all the years that have passed, are still amazing us at every turn. We will always be anxiously awaiting Duglas’ new songs.

Track Name: All Around The World
I believe in beauty and where it leads me I will go
You must believe in something
Because if there’s really nothing
Then there is no hope

It won’t take much persuasion, no need to understand
But if love is what we’re feeling come on little darling take my hand

All around the world tonight searching for something
We’re searching for something
All around the world tonight there’s got to be something
Got to be something

I’m not one to argue but I know that sometimes lovers they can be so cruel
So please excuse my caution
I’m so afraid of falling off my pedestal

Let me try some persuading, we don’t need to understand
If love is what we’re feeling come on little darling take my hand
Track Name: Take Me To Heaven (With Cineplexx)
Take me to heaven
Take me to heaven
Take me to heaven
I can't find my way back home

Can't you see I'm dying
Can't you see I'm dying
Can't you see I'm dying
Can't you see I'm dying
Can't you see I'm dying
Can't you see I'm dying
I can't find my way back home

I know there's something between me and you
Don't know what it is so please give me a clue
So tired of feeling lost and alone
I can't find my way back home

Watching your pupils growing when I look in your eyes
Can't deny it's meaning if you believe in science
Just like your eyes my love has grown
I can't find your way back home

Take me to heaven
Take me to heaven
Take me to heaven
I can't find my way back home

I've been lost these last few years
Any small joy and I'm drowned in tears
Trying to get back on the right road
I can't find my way back home

I know there's something between me and you
Don't know what it is so please give me a clue
So tired of feeling lost and alone
I can't find my way back home

Take me to heaven
Take me to heaven
Take me to heaven
I can't find my way back home

Won't you come and rescue me
You are all this lost soul needs
Without love I'm incomplete 
I can't find my way back home

Bah ba ba ba da
Bah ba ba ba da da
Bah ba ba ba da
I can't find my way back home

Bah ba ba ba da
Bah ba ba ba da da
Bah ba ba ba da
I can't find my way back home

Can't find my way back home
Track Name: Somebody Come and Play (With The Wellgreen)
Somebody come and play, somebody come and play today
Somebody come and smile the smile, sing the song it won't take long
Somebody come and play today

Somebody come and play, somebody come and play today
Somebody come and rhyme the rhyme, and laugh the laugh it won't take time
Somebody come and play today

Somebody come with me and see the pleasure in the wind
Somebody come before it gets too late to begin

Somebody come and play, somebody come and play today
Somebody come and be my friend and watch the sun until it rains again
Somebody come and play today
