As I said, I’ve had this song in my head for about four weeks now (well, not literally, that would have driven me crazy, but I’ve had it in my mind for this post). Sometimes when you put these kinds of things off, you realize the track just wasn’t as good as you remembered. But no, this one is. It’s one of those dark, gothy numbers, the sort of early 90′s swirly guitar, low-in-the-mix vocals songs that somehow depressed you even when you had no idea what they were about. I’ve been told this is about a car but who cares, it’s long and drawn out, a journey of a song, and it’s thick-sounded and full of guitar texture.

Sing it with me! “It’s the color of your skin… your skin is black metallic……”
