This Mortal Coil Lyrics

I first saw you.
You had on blue jeans.
Your eyes couldn't hide anything.
I saw you breathing.
And I saw you staring out in space.
I next saw you, you was at a party.
Though you was a queen, oh so flirty.
I cam against.
Didn't say excuse.
You knew what I was doing.
We looked very fine 'cause we were leaving.
Like Saint Joan, doing a cool, cool, jerk.
Oh I want you, Oh I want you...
Like a kangaroo...

"This Mortal Coil was not a band, but a unique collaboration of musicians recording in various permutations, the brainchild of 4AD kingpin Ivo Watts-Russell. The idea was to allow artists the creative freedom to record material outside of the realm of what was expected of them; it also created the opportunity for innovative cover versions of songs personal to Ivo. An example of this was the Cocteau Twins-starring version of Tim Buckley's ‘Song to the Siren’ which became the first This Mortal Coil release in 1983. Originally intended as a B-side for the ‘Sixteen Days’ 12", the result was so powerful that it was decided it should be the A-side..." From: http://4ad.com/artists/thismortalcoil

@Patrick Mulvaney Only two LP, but... full of diamonds and pearls. Evergreen classic.
They have been with me since late 80's, thanks to Piotr Kaczkowski, the Polish radio "Trójka" legend. Helikoptery... Pięknie grali, panie doktorze.


thank god


I always thought they were a band since I listened to the album so young. Definitely influenced my musical choice!
