the hooters

A good eighties band. Do you remember them? Their song Where Do the Children Go was one of my favorites.

nobody hears the music
Only the echo of a hollow sound
Where do the children go
Between the bright night and the darkest day
Where do the children go
And who's that deadly piper who leads them away
Together we make our way
Passengers on a train
Whisper a secret forever
Promises in the rain
We're leaving it all behind
While castles are falling down
We're going where no one can find us
And if there's a heaven
We'll find it somehow
Where do the children go
Between the bright night and the darkest day
Where do the children go
And who's that deadly piper who leads them away


My connection to fairy tales was strong even then - the allusion to the Pied Piper always captivated me.

I don't remember that song or the band. What unusual lyrics, I can see why they grabbed your imagination.

Oh. My. Goodness. I own several Hooters LP's. I thought I was the only one who remembered any song of theirs other than "And We Danced"! And most of their lyrics have that fairytale feel to them--which is why I loved them.
