It's the grooviest thing

I'm off to DJ's baseball game and then my mother is having one of those things where a lady comes to your house and sells stuff to a group of women but most of the women are too busy drinking margaritas to pay any attention to the newest development in cookware and who cares if it's not TupperWar(tm) anyhow?

The Small Victory Jukebox does not have time for such frivolities, however and I will leave you all with this song, a special long-distance dedication going out to Andrea, a Sad Old Goth like myself.

The Cure - Love Cats

[the jukebox will be turned on again later - get in your requests now and go download anything remaining from this weekend before they disappear]

We move like cagey tigers
We couldn't get closer than this
The way we walk
The way we talk
The way we stalk
The way we kiss

We slip through the streets
While everyone sleeps
Getting bigger and sleeker
And wider and brighter
We bite and scratch and scream all night
Let's go and
Throw all the songs we know

Into the sea
You and me
All these years and no one heard
I'll show you in spring
It's a treacherous thing
We missed you hissed the lovecats

(Ba ba-da...da da da da da...)

We're so wonderfully wonderfully wonderfully
Wonderfully pretty
Oh you know that I'd do anything for you
We should have each other to tea huh?
We should have each other with cream
Then curl up by the fire
And sleep for awhile
It's the grooviest thing
It's the perfect dream

Hand in hand
Is the only way to land
And always the right way round
Not broken in pieces
Like hated little meeces
How could we miss
Someone as dumb as this

I love you ... let's go
Oh ... solid gone ...
How could we miss someone as dumb
As this?

(Is it just me or did this song always remind you of the Inspector Gadget theme?)


This takes me back.

It makes me want to run down to Onyx and dance all slow and dramatic.

Great song.

Reminds me on long lost loves and long no more fitting black clothes ;-)
Wonderful song, Thank you.

Good Game to DJ.
