Tonight Today: Nr. 3 hit

TONIGHT TODAY: NR. 3 HIT

DBM&T had little succes with their released songs. One exception: In the Netherlands the first single, Tonight Today, was a huge hit. It ended at number three in the top 10. The next single, Mr. President, kept ‘bubbling under’.
Tonight Today was written by Ken Howard and Alan Blaikley.
In Mexico the B-side (Bad News) became a very popular song. Nothing is known about hitcharts in Mexico.

Lyrics:

Everything flows in an endless stream
And if we close our eyes, like a vision or a dream,
We’ll see this world in its myriad ways
Everything flows and every single minute
Brings a change to the earth and to everybody in it
Watch a million lives playing out their days.

People at this very time are making many things – that’s, that’s so
Money and planes and pacts and plans – the wise man understands,
But fools are in command.

In the desert rockets point towards the stars. In sleazy bars
Someone’s getting drunk and ugly
On the city sidewalks hustlers pick their prey. Far away,
Bodies bake on surfing beaches.

Tonight, today, feel it all going on
All this moment’s different strands of life
Tonight, today, we’re a part of it all,
Though we’re on our own and making love.

Everything flows – Nixon’s called a meeting
There’s a massive demonstration and some kids are getting beaten up
In time to make tomorrow’s first editions
Yeah, there’s striptease shows, while at Buckingham Palace
They’re working out the seating plans for Jackie and Onassis
And in Kalamazoo there’s two boys fishing.

People at this very time are making many things – that’s, that’s so
Speeches and sailing-boats and scenes, while kids in faded jeans
Sit cross-legged in the park

In a Roman night-club Carlo stuffs his mouth, further south
Dino dines on left-out garbage
In a jungle hospital a mother sighs, baby cries
New arrival in the life-stream.

Tonight, today, feel it all going on
All this moment’s different strands of life
Tonight, today, we’re a part of it all,
Though we’re on our own and making love.
