Marquee Moon
Television Lyrics


I remember
Ooh, how the darkness doubled
I recall
Lightning struck itself

I was listening
Listening to the rain
I was hearing
Hearing something else

Life in the hive puckered up my nights
A kiss of death, the embrace of life
Ooh, there I stand 'neath the Marquee Moon
Just waiting

I spoke to a man down at the tracks
And I ask him
How he don't go mad
He said, "Look here, junior, don't you be so happy
And for heaven's sake, don't you be so sad"

Life in the hive puckered up my night
The kiss of death, the embrace of life
Ooh, there I stand 'neath the Marquee Moon
Hesitating

Well, the Cadillac
It pulled out of the graveyard
Pulled up to me
All they said, "Get in, get in"
Then the Cadillac
It puttered back into the graveyard
Me, I got out again

Life in the hive puckered up my night
A kiss of death, the embrace of life
Over there I stand 'neath the Marquee Moon
But I ain't waiting, uh-uh

I remember
How the darkness doubled
I recall
Lightning struck itself

I was listening
Listening to the rain
I was hearing
Hearing something else

This record is very powerful. Listen closely and attentively throughout and it will reward you with a positive, refreshed and almost cleansed feeling. It's like magic and it works every time. A very, very special record.

"Just waiting" is so sublime that sublime blushes.

dean

Kit knows his shit!!

Xavier Hernandez

Thanks man, idk why i mever thought about listening to the whole album. 😅 literally the only song ive heard of theirs is marquee moon.

Ellie Brown

My hometown suffered a series of catastrophic earthquakes and aftershocks and I got so much strength from this track it wasn't funny, I had no choice but to go back to this again and again.

Daniel Felipe Mezu Valencia

That's exactly the effect it has on me

the most influential yet underrated band of the 70s. Television already predated future bands like The Cars, Joy Division, Interpol, The Strokes (sound like em too), The Killers, The White Stripes, Oasis, Blur, Radiohead (early stuff), Talking Heads and U2. Damn this band should be in the Hall of Fame. Can't believe it's a band from an era which disco and soft rock took over radio stations. Way ahead of it's time. Same with Black Sabbath.

Ashley Pomeroy

They're one of a tiny handful of bands who had a post-punk sound while punk was still happening - like Pere Ubu and Devo and Suicide. It was recorded in September 1976 while Frampton Comes Alive was at #1 in the US. What a fascinating period in musical history.

Mick, the alcoholic bear !

Talking heads..blind melon.gin blossoms
