Songlines (Alphaville video)


Songlines (Alphaville video)

Songlines is a video released by the German band Alphaville in 1990, created during the production of Alphaville's 1989 album "The Breathtaking Blue". Nine acclaimed directors (or directing teams) were given a different track from "The Breathtaking Blue" and asked to make a short movie inspired by the song (the tenth track, "Anyway", is played over the closing credits).

Christoph & Wolfgang Lauenstein's video for "Middle of the Riddle" was later retitled "Balance" and won the 1989 Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film (albeit with different music).
