Pleiades

Album: Gretchen Goes To Nebraska (1989)
  • When I look up at the stars at night
    What could I find beyond the light
    A hundred million worlds that we ignore
    Who can restrain Pleiades's
    Or know the laws of heavenly's
    How many times have we been wrong before
    Far off in the field I see a castle
    Today the people gather at the pole
    He tried to tell us all the world was spherical
    They burned his body but not his soul Writer/s: DALE RICHARDSON, DOUG T. PINNICK, JERRY WAYNE GASKILL, TY RYAN TABOR, WILLIAM S. TAYLOR

  • Anton from Lincoln, NeAlong with Tacklebox, I have a more developed demo of this, but can't seem to find any info on it
  • Paul from St. Petersburg, FlPleiades was the first song that began to form the band's sound and direction in their early years, as Ty Tabor will attest to in various sources, including the CD "Tacklebox" (the Ty Tabor demos vol 1&2 - Molken)
  • Darrell from Eugene, United StatesThe Pleiades constellation (placed inside of an oval) is also the logo of Subaru. "Subaru" is the Japanese name for Pleiades, and not that this has anything to do with the King's X song, but Serena (my girlfriend) always gets Saab and Subaru confused, which is easy when it comes to the redesigned Subaru WRX wagon that was brirfly sold as a Saab.
  • Aaron from Palm Bay, FlI love King's X. They blow me away.
  • Bryanthemadposter from Washington, MiThe title likely comes from the Bible. Given the heavy spiritual influence in King's X's early work, this seems likely.
