Kayak: Starlight dancer

The third entry for Kayak, and to my taste the best of the Dutch seventies' singles. The timing of this space mini-epic was excellent, as it coincided with the Star Wars mania. Musically, the greatest influence in this particular song undoubtedly was Queen, especially their Bohemian rhapsody, in the alternations of rock and ballad.

Year: 1977
Charted: 6 weeks
Top position: 17
My score: 6/6
