Subject: (urth) Frank Black Date: Fri, 01 Mar 2002 15:30:19 -0600 Here's a possible GW pop music connection: (on the subject of music from a few posts back) Anyone listen to Frank Black? Former lead singer of the Pixies? This guy has a strong science fiction flavor: some of his songs paint melancholy post-apocalyptic or extraterrestrial landscapes with great skill. He also has an obsession with Ray Bradbury, even going as far as to name an album after him (The Cult of Ray). Anyway, I got his newest, Dog in Sand a few months back. I was dumbstruck by one song that, well. . . it reminds me a LOT of the BOTNS. Mainly because it has the word "pelagic" in it. It's hard to believe a sci-fi freak pop music star could pick that word randomly. Anyway, here are the lyrics. I had to find them on the web as I do not have the album of the liner notes with me, and it does not designate the chorus or which parts are repeated. I highly recommend you get this album or anything else by him. You know, now that I think about it...tell me this isn't a love song to an Undine!! :) The Swimmer in the wake of his chariot you swam toward the latitudes leaving for happier times florida far behind trying your best you were ignoring the rescuers you'd gone so very long you were so very strong the scene was so tragic but that was the magic will you never drown? will you learn to use some forgotten part some forgotten part? are you going down where the ballyhoos and the tritons are? you were so incredible finding all the edible prize of the sea prize of the sea in the wake of his chariot he swam toward the latitudes leaving for happier times florida far behind in the division pelagic you where choragic _________________________________________________________________ Join the world’s largest e-mail service with MSN Hotmail. http://www.hotmail.com --
