    ELO - Letter From Spain

    "I read the papers this morning 
    I saw your photograph
    You look good in the movie
    It must be so much fun
    Letter from Spain
    From someone I once knew

    I got a letter this morning
    Postmark said it was from Spain
    Your writing is so very strange
    I guess it always was that way
    Letter from Spain
    From someone I once knew "

    Gets a taste in my mouth

    As desperation takes hold.

    Why is it something so good

    Just can't function no more?

    Electric Light Orchestra used to be one of my favorites.

  • For some reason that always reminds me of a line from Kate Bush- Deeper Understanding:

    As the people here grow colder

    I turn to my computer

    And spend my evenings with it

    Like a friend.
    It's a re-creation
    Again I live another life
    My imagination
    Can't cross the borderline

    It amazes me that she wrote that when she did so far in advance of how things are now.

    This is very true Cervus. I am just purely speculating but the internet was perhaps in it's very early stages at this point and there is a sound effect similar to the old dial up modem, maybe she was already aware of the internet? Or maybe not, but either way very much ahead of it's time, I do prefer the original rather than reworked version if I am honest though.

  • Yes same here...She may well have been aware of it in its embryonic stage but to foresee how it could affect some people so early on is quite stunning,

    I hadn't really thought of it like that, she is a bit of an HG Wells/ George Orwell then, in so far as making prophetic commentary eh.

    On the subject of Kate Bush, among my favorite lyrics:

    "what could he do?

    Should have been a rock star."

    But he didn't have the money for a guitar.

    "what could he do?

    Should have been a politician."

    But he never had a proper education.

    "what could he do?

    Should have been a father."

    But he never even made it to his twenties.

    What a waste --

    Army dreamers.

    Ooh, what a waste of

    Army dreamers.

    Ooh, what a waste of all that

    Army dreamers,

    Army dreamers,

    Army dreamers, oh...

  • Train Lyrics......
    Plastic brain scar
    I want laser
    I'm your chauffeur
    With high gloss highs
    Take you where you want
    Can't stop, oh off the train
    Train, yeh, yeh, yeh
    Wolflady
    Sucks my brain
    Apricot
    Sunrise came
    L.A. nights
    Just roll in
    Can't stop, oh off the train
    Train, yeh, yeh, yeh
    Nasal douche
    Poolside line
    Softlit tan
    What's your sign?
    Hold my hand
    Just roll in
    Can't stop, oh off the train
    Train, yeh, yeh, yeh
    Can't stop, oh off the train
    Train, yeh, yeh, yeh
    Can't stop, oh off the train
    Train, yeh, yeh, yeh
    Just Keep Things Simple.....
    Love Goldfrapp.....
  • My favourite lyric of 2013 so far -

    "I'm not the kind of sick you can fix" - Sick, by Chelsea Wolfe
    I hope that you die in a decent pair of shoes
    You got a lot more walking to do where you're going to.
