"This is a message to the sky..."

"Hey Jesus, won't you come on down?"

(From Living With the Human Machines)

Well, I'm only sorry there were so many more Strangelove lyrics I wasn't able to crowbar in this month.
For instance "The man in the moon's got it in for me." (Sixer)

"...That it was impossible to tell from which person they had originated."

The dust that you once came from is the dust you will return to again."

"We're going to make it to the moon...but I don't want go there..."

"...But I don't want to stay...
But I really don't think I can go..."

Back in the day, Strangelove were accused of being "miserablists" in unimaginative & frankly miserable quarters.
This accusation never took into account the sneering intelligence & often hilarious delivery of their words, nor the affecting accomplishment of their music.
Strangelove was in fact, a wonderful thing - rich in stories, observations, darkness, obsession, comedy.
For every ten snarling tales they told of addiction, violence, paranoia & breakdown, they told a gentle other of spirit, nature, dreams & compassion.
Wise, clever, well-versed in The Way of Things & sadly gone, February's men are Strangelove.
