Song of the Day

Lady With The Spinning Head (Extended Dance Mix)
from the EBTTRT single and Best Of 90-00 B-Sides

Slim pickin's for SotD these days.  Whereas volare seems to have this super special extra rare U2 as you've never seen them before stuff, I have.... albums and remixes, to work with (and nobody seems to like remixes). *shakes a fist* I must take up bootlegs, I tell ya.  Anyhoodle...

I think this one is the definition of B-side.  It's not quite good enough to be on an album, but too good to throw out the window.  You can tell where "The Fly" and some of "Ultraviolet" came from with this song.  Especially "The Fly," to me it sounds like it throughout.

The intro reminds me of marbles being dropped on a hard floor.  Not sure why, that's just the image it evokes, dropping glass (that bounces, not breaks) on something hard.  The riff is okay, I suppose, but Edge is kind enough to throw us a guitar solo.  Larry loves his cymbals, we all know that.  I just think the end takes way too long.  I know dance mixes are supposed to be long, but eh.  To it's credit, I like the synth-strings in the background as it outros.


Lady With The Spinning Head

Here she comes
Lady luck again
Figure of eight
Six and nine again

I... (I...)
I... (I...)
My lady with the spinning head

Whatever the deal (Whatever the deal)
She won't let me down
Wherever I go (Wherever I go)
She's always hangin' round

I... (I...)
I... (I...)
Got my lady with the spinning head

La la la, la la la, la la la, la la
Lady with the spinning head
La la la, la la la, la la la, la la
Lady with the spinning head

(Oh yeah, come on baby)

She's been gone
But I knew she'd be back
She's got the red
She put me in the black

I... (I...)
I... (I...)
Need the lady with the spinning head

I love that girl
She cure my blues
She's the one
In the travelling shoes
I'm on top
When she's around
She's my ticket
Out of town

La la la, la la la, la la la, la la
Lady with the spinning head
La la la, la la la, la la la, la la~
Lady with the spinning head
La la la, la la la, la la la, la la~
Lady with the spinning head
La la la, la la la, la la la, la la~
Lady with the spinning head

Here she comes
Lady luck again

Here she comes
Lady...

Figure of eight
Six and nine again
Six and nine again
