Daphne (Laurel Tree)  performed by  Kayak  (1979)
Composed by Irene Linders & Ton Scherpenzeel
From: Netherlands
Recommended by john_l [profile] on Saturday 31st August 2002

This is one of the great chase songs that I know. From the insistent piano-based beat you can imagine Apollo getting it on for Daphne, and putting her in the sky or something, which seems to have been de rigueur for Greek gods. Kayak played guitar-and-piano-based progressive pop/rock (without anything overly long) but didn't really come together until "Phantom of the Night" in 1979 (ignore the UBL ratings, they're way off the mark). "Ruthless Queen" and the title track are very pretty and overall the whole album is excellent.

from Phantom of the Night (Janus)
