Lyrics are funny things.
Since I was a wee 'un I've loved the lyrics of "Diamond Dogs", which is high sci-fi-camp Bowie at it's nonsense best, but of course only when sung.
Not just by Bowie, but by Beck, even in my head, dammit.
But written down, they lose all life and power instantly. This is of course totally obvious to all you liberal arts types, but I still find it remarkable. Funny things.
A line from "Diamond Dogs" –
"Just another future song"
however, is a blog post title waiting to happen though – if I ever blog again.
Or a Warren Ellis graphic novella.
