Funkband die eind jaren 70 wordt opgericht. Bekendste leden van de groep zijn zanger en bassist Mark King en toetsenist Mike Lindup. Level 42 scoort in de jaren 80 de ene hit na de andere. Lessons In Love wordt in 1986 hun grootste hit en behaald de tweede plaats in de Top 40. In 1989 overlijdt gitarist Alan Murphy aan de gevolgen van aids. In 1994 scoort de band hun laatste hit met de single Forever Now die van het gelijknamige album komt. Sindsdien heeft Level 42 geen hits meer gescoord maar de band neemt nog steeds albums op en Mark en Co. treden nog steeds veel op. In 2016 stonden ze op het North Sea Jazz Festival in Rotterdam en brachten ze een EP getiteld Sirens uit.

Songtekst

I'm going nowhere
Gotta face up to it
Gotta wake up to it
I feel so guilty
Killing time is a sin
A dam burst of dreams flows thru' me
They show me where I could be
Flash point feelings flow
Thru' my mind moving

When my friends tell me
You just can't connect
You ain't got no respect
They tell me nothing
'Cos I know about that
Yes I know about that
I'm not gonna take what people say
Don't feel that I belong today
Sense of freedom and
Sense of pride

From the mountains to the sea
I'll run across this land
Looking out for strength and beauty
A diamond in the sand
And I will chase the four winds over
Trying to understand
And I won't stop until I'm holding
Heaven in my hands

I won't let nobody
Turn me off the track
Now there's no turning back
Won't let no worries
Turn my inside down
Now there's no room for doubt
I'm heading for my destiny
And it feels electric to me
Flash point feelings flow
Thru' my mind

I was lonely going nowhere
Drowning on dry land
I was almost stranded there a
Shipwreck on the sand
But now I'll chase the whole world over
Making my demands
And I won't stop until I'm holding
Heaven in my hands

From the mountains to the sea
I'll run across this land
Looking out for strength and beauty
A diamond in the sand
And I will chase the four winds over
Trying to understand
And I won't stop until I'm holding
Heaven in my hands
I was lonely going nowhere
Drowning on dry land
I was almost stranded there a
Shipwreck on the sand
But now I'll chase the whole world over
Making my demands
And I won't stop until I'm holding
Heaven in my hands
