Kinda creepy song of heartbreak in the moment of realization.
Tell me What you mean When you tell me You’re gonna leave ‘Cuz I know I know You’re already gone Your heart left Many years ago And your eyes left Many tears ago And I dunno what’s left To go When you go away
Tell me What you mean When you tell me You’re gonna leave ‘Cuz I know I know You’re already gone And your body Won’t touch mine any more And I’m sorry If my love was such a chore But you’re gone now It’s not your problem Anymore
Tell me What you mean When you tell me You’re gonna leave ‘Cuz I know I know You’re already gone I found out You told your friends we’re through And I found out You’re seeing someone new And now I wonder What’s left For you to do?
Tell me What you mean When you tell me You’re gonna leave ‘Cuz I know I know You’re already gone So goodbye, now You’ve been cold right from the start So I guess it’s time, now For the two of us to part And get over And heal This broken heart
Tell me What you mean When you tell me You’re gonna leave ‘Cuz I know I know You’re already gone
If you slow down porn sounds, it gets downright creepy! A very enthusiastic French adult actor creates our core. A sample from “88 Lines About 44 Women” by the Nails pulls it together. Add some half-heard dialogue, a dead man’s voice, and what must be from an old cartoon makes the whole thing just unsettling.
I found a video of this guy ranting about how the Large Hadron Collider is going to end the world. A not-so-subtle sample from “They’re Coming to Take Me Away” seemed appropriate accompaniment. Along with the usual assortment of aural insult.
Dialogue by H.P. Lovecraft. That neat sample is from “Bongo Bong” by Manu Chao. I highly recommend finding the actual song. Also in the background (along with gibbering and such) is the eternally-rising chord progression aural illusion. It’s actually just two chords, but it always sounds like it’s getting higher.
A wild assortment of samples from various gay and straight porn (including “Gang Bang: the Musical”), plus a wee bit of “The Ubiquitous Mr Lovegrove” by Dead Can Dance. And a didgeridoo, just because. And is that the fiddle from “Istanbul, not Constantinople” by They Might Be Giants in the background? You bet.
This may be more embarrassing than amusing: My impression of Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd singing “Lovely (Reprise)” from Stephen Sondheim’s A funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. I played Pseudolus in a community theater production a while back, and the Pseudolus/Hysterium duet always made me think of Elmer and Bugs doing the “Kill da Wabbit” schtick in the classic, “What’s Opera, Doc?”
PSEUDOLUS (Fudd) Please, Hysterium! We must convince the captain!
HYSTERIUM (Bugs) That I’m a beautiful, dead girl? He’ll never believe it!
PSEUDOLUS He will, you’re delicious!
HYSTERIUM No, it won’t do, just look at me!
PSEUDOLUS I can’t take my eyes off of you You’re lovely, Absolutely lovely, Who’d believe the loveliness of you?
Perfect, Sweet and warm and winsome, Radiant as in some Dream come true.
Now Venus will seem tame, Helen and her thousand ships Will have to die of shame! You’re so lovely, Frighteningly lovely, That the world will never seem the same!
Now lie down, and think dead thoughts.
HYSTERIUM I’m lovely, Absolutely lovely, Who’d believe the loveliness of me? Perfect, Sweet and warm and winsome, Radiant as in some dream come true. Now…
