@glovetalker german synthpop Alphaville got their name from the Jean-Luc Godard film "Alphaville" not from this song (which by the way was released in 2010 and Alphaville already existed since the mid 80s)
i love hearing where bands get their names from:
Pretty Girls make Graves - the Smiths
Ladytron - Roxy Music
Boys Don't Cry - the Cure
Heaven 17 - A Clockwork Orange
And now Alphaville is from Bryan Ferry!
