|I Am Skooter|
So here's us, on the raggedy edge.
I’ve always been a fan of lyrics; always liked the idea of songs and songwriters, with the performance coming second. My favourite songs have been the ones where the lyrics matched a great performance: U2’s Bad comes to mind (and gets my choice as the best song of the 80s), as does Bullet the Blue Sky; Wilco’s Ashes of American Dreams is high on this list, and has been mentioned before.
But this is maybe the weirdest example yet…
There’s this beer commercial, and I don’t even know what the beer is, but it’s a beer commercial. And these are the lyrics it includes:
Words are few
I have spoken
I could waste a thousand years
Wrapped in sorrow
Words are token
Come inside and catch my tears
You’ve been talking but believe me
If its true
You do not know
And those, as it turns out, are the lyrics to that cheesiest of cheesy 80’s bands the Culture Club’s “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me”.
Now somebody should cover that song.
