So when you see a man who's broken,
Pick him up and carry him
And when you see a woman who's broken
Put her all into your arms
'Cause we dont know where we come from
We dont know what we are.
And You? You're no one
And you? You're falling
And you? you're travelling
Travelling at the speed of light.
Were any of you into Laurie Anderson? Or should I say, ARE you, since she's still around and touring and making music? I got into her in high school, when her album "Big Science" was in the nerdy science mag I liked, Omni. God, I thought I was cool, walking around with my Sony Walkman, listening to a performance artist who made music on a modified violen. Remember, I grew up in Fairbanks, Alaska, and Stockton, California. We barely wore shoes sometimes. This was culture.
So anyway, I'm not sure what my point is...but if you're ever thinking of trying out something new, assuming you're not already a Laurie Anderson fan, and if you're into something different, and you LIKE to really listen to the words...try Strange Angels. You may like it. Let me know.
(P.Ss, the ultimate objectifying men lyrics? Also Laurie Anderson, Strange Angels, the song is 'Beautiful Red Dress'...lyrics?
I've got a Beatiful Red Dress
and you'd look really good
Standing Beside It
You know...not that I'm condoning objectifying men or anything, but with all of the lyrics about women being just the object of lust or whatever, it's ironic and amusing...and the rest of the song isn't bad, either.)
