Todd Rundgren – The Artist
Todd Harry Rundgren (born June 22, 1948) is an American musician, singer, songwriter, and record producer who has performed a diverse range of styles as a solo artist and as a member of the band Utopia. He is known for his sophisticated and often unorthodox music, his occasionally lavish stage shows, and his later experiments with interactive art. He also produced music videos and was an early adopter and promoter of various computer technologies, such as using the Internet as a means of music distribution in the late 1990s. Rundgren is considered a pioneer in the fields of electronic music, progressive rock, music videos, computer software, and Internet music delivery. His best-known songs include “Hello It’s Me” and “I Saw the Light” from Something/Anything? (1972), which get frequent air time on classic rock radio stations, the 1978 “Can We Still Be Friends”, and the 1983 single “Bang the Drum All Day”, which is featured in many sports arenas, commercials, and movie trailers.
I Saw The Light – The Song
“I Saw The Light” is a song written and performed by American musician Todd Rundgren that was released as the opening track from his 1972 album Something/Anything? In the album’s liner notes, Rundgren states that he intended the song to be the hit of the album, and copied the Motown tradition of putting hit songs at the beginning of albums. “I Saw The Light” features in many TV shows, films and commercials including, in 2023, the advertisements for the UK gambling website Gala Bingo.
The Lighthouse – The Shape
This record has been modelled into a lighthouse on a rock. A lighthouse is a tower, building, or other type of physical structure designed to emit light from a system of lamps and lenses and to serve as a beacon for navigational aid, for maritime pilots at sea or on inland waterways. Lighthouses mark dangerous coastlines, hazardous shoals, reefs, rocks, and safe entries to harbors; they also assist in aerial navigation. Once widely used, the number of operational lighthouses has declined due to the expense of maintenance and has become uneconomical since the advent of much cheaper, more sophisticated and effective electronic navigational systems.
