The Arabian was a popular Goya's Child (1) song in the early 90s. At live gigs it sent audiences 'through the roof' to use a colloqialism. The lyrics to this version (recorded in 1993) are shared verse (myself), chorus (Thorpe) - something we did often. The unique drum-beat and Arabian sounding electric guitar work add to the overall cathartic effect. The video accompanying the somng is fairly basic but provides some eye candy!


Got to You-Tube video featuring:'The Arabian' by Goya's Child (1) 

Apologies for the non-digital recording quality (it was recorded in Castlemaine in 1993). Copyright notice: Lyrics /lyric melodies cowritten by Ian Irvine and Liam Thorpe.  Music: Thorpe, YT, James Mannix and Richie O'Neill 1992 , all riights reserved.  Mechanical rights to this recording/arrangement as above: GC (1) 1993 all rights reserved.

Note: Later revamped and digitally recorded versions of this song (with video accompaniment) are currently up at Goya's Child's (2) Reverbnation site - the song has been renamed as 'The Egyptian'. These versions are more mystical/mythopoetic than the original (which was really about insecurity in love or perhaps lost love) and the videos feature some spectacular images of Egypt.
