Well, I'm really surprised to hear that. I believe, each of us has a number of LC studio recording that don't "fit", more than one. Is it the only one for you? Wow...

Actually, you are right, Roman. Your post triggered by memory (& my honesty), & I can think of 2 other studio recordings that, musically speaking, I don't really love. (Jazz Police is just the one that stood out the most, in that arena). But I don't want to hijack this thread with that kind of discussion, so I'm not going to name the other 2 songs here. Suffice it to say that your belief is correct, at least in terms of my musical tastes, & thank you for pointing that out.

Please, give me a song which contains a line where is mentioned a thing that is used to steer an animal. (The animal is not mentioned.)

Hi Maj,

"The Future" contains this line:

Hi Steven,

The equipment, I was thinking of, is less painful. No creatures or animals are mentioned.

Hi Maj, maybe either one of these two songs (I prefer BOTAM bottom line but I couldn't resist adding the line above it) :)

No need for the whip
Ah, no need for the rein – Ballard Of The Absent Mare

you fastened to the rein – Take This Longing
It doesn't have to be perfect, it just has to B4real ~ me
Attitude is a self-fulfilling prophecy ~ me ...... The magic of art is the truth of its lies ~ me ...... Only left-handers are in their right mind!

Hi,

Modern illumination isn't necessary to see something in the night in lyrics of what song?

Hi Steven,

Are you referring to the Sisters of Mercy?

Hi Roman,

Yes, indeed: "Don't turn on the lights you can read their address by the moon."

Thanks! (I guess, now it's my turn to ask?)

Anyway, it's time for a selfish promotion of my new instagram account (with some old photos on it). I hope, there you'll find new pictures from Hydra soon (so feel free to follow)!

And now - the next question: what does the name of this account mean?

As usually, a line is the answer.

A word that sometimes refers to LC in his own lyrics is hidden behind one of these letters.

If you search (Ctrl+F), you'll find this word repeated 5 times on this particular page!

But that's just 1/13 of the answer.
