Tonight Is What It Means To Be Young
Song from the movie “Streets of Fire” starring Michael Pare, Diane Lane, Rick Moranis, Amy Madigan & Willem Dafoe.
Watch the below video listen to the words… there is a cosmic message.
It has inspired Allan since 1984. The story line is unrealistic and is a fable, but the music is great. This song has a rebel passion stand up and be counted subtle message.
This song “Tonight Is What It Means To Be Young” was adopted by Allan Ivarsson as the ‘Music Mascot’ for the evolution of ‘Cosmicism’. The year 1984, when the beginning of ‘Cosmicism’ was conceived, before his ‘Cosmic Philosophy’ had a name in 1988. It was the same year Allan saw this film late at night in a theatre in Penrith NSW. He was the only person there that night, who saw the film.
There is more behind A.I. than he has ever revealed, he chose to stay a mystery until end of 2013, his 65th year. Now he is gradually coming out in the open, a jigsaw puzzle piece at a time in his books.
How ‘Cosmicism’ was born & evolved goes back to 1961, during his first year of ‘High School’. Evolving further in 1970, 1975, 1984, 2007, and 2017. That story in the end 2024 will be revealed.
His only disappointment in his youth, was his rejection by the army when he was called up for ‘conscription’ for a ‘Tour of Duty in Vietnam’. He was rejected on Medical Grounds at the age of 20 years, because of a childhood medical struggle. He was disappointed and annoyed by the rejection. He found out years later at the age of 35 years that the Medical Profession had made a mistake, and that he was cured at 18 years of age. This rejection frustration in Allan, lead him down a path, often wild until 1984.
Allan became obsessed with proving himself, not to others, but to himself that he could do anything, thus his dynamic life evolved.
Allan was a boy…
Who didn’t like fighting- he became a street fighter.
Who didn’t like heights and became a climber & high diver.
Who was shy with girls and became a salesman, specialising in selling to women, and specialising in the sensitive art of street approaches to young ladies.
He was hired by parents as a professional escort to look after their daughters, attending important functions.
He faced death eight times during his adult life and survived situations in which most people are killed.
He became highly skilled in Door-to-door selling, cold canvasing, Retail Management, Stamp Dealing, Manufacturing Logistics as a Hands-on Consultant teaching ‘Class ‘A’ World Class Systems. Also skilled in Warehousing, Purchasing and Production Control Planning.
He was an oil tanker driver, backed by his ‘Heavy Vehicle Drivers Licence’ skills, and was declared ‘Black’ by a Union for standing up against their ‘Totalitarian’ methods. This was his first public speaking experience.
He won a trip to Hayman Island for photographic coverage of the Opera House Festivities in 1973.
During his executive career he organised Corporation Seminars, and was a meeting Chairman, Secretary and Public Speaker at professional events.
He failed in last year of High School & did not get a University Degree, but eventually he outperformed many degree qualified people and had degree qualified people reporting to him.
His Project Management & writing skills are self-taught, his training tool was Philosophy, Science and History including global/cultural ‘Belief System’ studies, primitive, ancient and modern.
There is far more to his dynamic story and range of experience… but the point is that the creation of ‘Cosmicism’ was the end result of Allan’s dynamic life, all founded upon his ‘Quest For Truth’.
When you read his books, your mind will go on a journey in a fight for truth, freedom and justice.
For now enjoy his inspirational ‘Music Mascot’…

Tonight Is What It Means to Be Young
I’ve got a dream ’bout an angel on the beach And the perfect waves are starting to come His hair is flying out in ribbons of gold And his touch has got the power to stun I’ve got a dream ’bout an angel in the forest Enchanted by the edge of a lake His body’s flowing in the jewels of light And the earth below him’s starting to shake
But I don’t see any angels in the city I don’t hear any holy choirs sing And if I can’t get an angel I can still get a boy And a boy’d be the next best thing The next best thing to an angel A boy’d be the next best thing
I’ve got a dream ’bout a boy in a castle And he’s dancing like a cat on the stairs He’s got the fire of a prince in his eyes And the thunder of a drum in his ears I’ve got a dream ’bout a boy on a star Looking down upon the realm of the world He’s there all alone and dreaming of someone like me I’m not an angel but at least I’m a girl
I’ve got a dream when the darkness is over We’ll be lying in the rays of the sun But it’s only a dream and tonight is for real You’ll never know what it means But you’ll know how it feels It’s gonna be over (over) Before you know it’s begun (Before you know it’s begun)
It’s all we really got tonight Stop your crying hold on (tonight) Before you know it it’s gone (tonight) Tonight is what it means to be young Tonight is what it means to be young
Let the rebels begin Let the fire be started We’re dancing for the restless and the broken-hearted Let the rebels begin Let the fire be started We’re dancing for the desperate and the broken-hearted Let the rebels begin (Tonight is what it means to be young) Let the fire be started (Before you know it it’s gone) We’re dancing for the restless and the broken-hearted Let the rebels begin Let the fire be started We’re dancing for the desperate and the broken-hearted
Say a prayer in the darkness for the magic to come No matter what it seams Tonight is what it means to be young Before you know it it’s gone Tonight is what it means to be young Before you know it it’s gone
I’ve got a dream when the darkness is over We’ll be lying in the rays of the sun But it’s only a dream and tonight is for real You’ll never know what it means But you’ll know how it feels It’s gonna be over (over) Before you know it’s begun
It’s all we really got tonight Stop your cryin’ hold on (tonight) Before you know it it’s gone (tonight) Tonight is what it means to be young Tonight is what it means to be young
The things they say And then the things they do Nothin’s gonna stop us if our dream is true
