Voices Of Babylon

Back in the day a little group came along called The Outfield. They weren't anything extraordinary, but my younger brother and I would run around singing "Josie's on a vacation far away" with our handy air guitars. That was a line from their big hit Your Love. Anyway, the act sounded more American-oriented rock than they did English for a band hailing out of London. Needless to say they tempted credibility on their third album, Voice Of Babylon. They may not have succeeded but they have a load of great car songs and I've always had a nostalgic soft spot for their stuff including this title track from the aforementioned recording which fit perfectly for the Babylon 5, Season 3 episode, Messages From Earth, and the opening line, "Hit the message I can hear you calling."
