“I am tired... I am weary,
I could sleep for a thousand years;
A thousand dreams that would forsake me,
Different colors made of tears.”
**All Is Explained**
Facinating! And coincedntal:) I always hear that line in my head when i'm totally exhausted, like today:)
i only skim-read that piece, but the author doesn't seem to have discovered that the Banshees guitar player also took on the name....
It's a pretty good article, and the song is one of my favorites of all time. Dark and sexy...what more could you ask for? ;-)
I try to collect different versions of it: the original Velvet Underground (and the long folkish demo that came with the boxed set), Christian Death, Siouxsie and the Creatures (it wasn't with the Banshees, right? ...Or was it?), Rosetta Stone, and a strange (but still good) electronica one by Trash Palace (featuring a singer named Cozette). I'm wondering if Bowie has a cover; that would sound sublime, I think.
I wish I had an MP3 of the live cover that a Philippine goth band named The Late Isabel
plays. It's amazing and never fails to make me whirl like a dervish when they play it.
