Airhead
Thomas Dolby Lyrics


I buy her all the right clothes and pretty jewels to wear
My friends say she's a dumb blonde but they don't know she dyes her hair
She thinks the fighting in Central America's easily solved
But what to wear to Bel Air premieres is a problem she could never resolve

She's an airhead
Stungun and mace, Kharmann Ghia plates say "Lost in Space"
She's an airhead
Thousands in trust, cusp aquarius, get serious
She's an airhead
Tinted contacts don't change the fact that black is black
She's an airhead
And while I'm impressed with the length of those legs
She's not an intellectual giant

She'd like to model, or maybe act, or start a magazine
Before she signs any big contracts, she better learn to read
But in her dreams she's the queen of the fashion regime

You ask me do I love you, does the Pope live in the woods?
Quod Erat Demonstrandum, baby ("ooh, you speak French")

She's an airhead
Stungun and mace, Kharmann Ghia plates say "Lost in Space"
She's an airhead
Thousands in trust, cusp aquarius, get serious
She's an airhead
And while I'm impressed with the size of that chest
She's not an intellectual giant

Sweet and low and oh-so, little Ms. Dora Jarre
Safe sex and fishnets and could you walk me to my car, pa
She's losing faith in a world that is out of control
So she's gonna nix politics, she's taking up volleyball
Volleyball, why?

'Cause she's an airhead
Stungun and mace, Kharmann Ghia plates say "Lost in Space"
She's an airhead
Thousands in trust, cusp aquarius, get serious
She's an airhead
And now the time's come for the end of my song
Don't get me wrong

If she's an airhead, it has to be said
It was men made her that way
It was us made her that way
It was us made her that way

Oh airhead

Aliens Ate My Buick is one of the most underrated albums in the history of popular music.

Rich Harker

I think this was the strongest track on the album, superb mixture of  programming & live. Snare fits the track just fine, anything bigger would detract from the other stuff going on around it. I really like how a lot of the sounds going on are purposely really late, creates a great feel. This guy is a much underrated genius, never got the recognition he deserved in this country. Never get tired of listening to his albums, there's always something new in there somewhere.

XCLent0

nope. Hot Sauce or May The Cube Be With You

David Davies

"This country" ? We're not psychic 😉

Michael Gaines

Agree

janne wallace

he gets a better recognize for giving us the invention of (phone's) ringtones. and yeah..underrated genius-by far. you also may enjoy his production works with collaborations of: prefab sprout. george a clinton..I love catching him at the independent night club venue in San Francisco a few years ago..'super great mesmerizing of experience:)

Dig the deep groove on this it's a hell of a track. Catchy and drives like concrete truck. BEAUTIFUL. happy to have stumbled across it ...

Some film clips are worthy as pieces of art in themselves - this is one of them.

Dejan Hasecic

One of my favorite albums ever. Thomas is just unbelievable ..and the musicians on these recordings!!!!!!!

Matt Lord

As a muso with a studio.... Great AD/DA,Monitors, ect ect.. This Album is honestly Reference material.
Beside the "Dolby" fun , outside the box humour..... I have all his albums... Followed him from TGAOW...
Every album has its vibe... But I tell you, besides the music, (Thats important) AAMB is fairdinkim one of the best produced Albums Ive ever heard.
Its pure Class...
Funny thing is, Coldplays FOH guy thinks so too... Thats how he tuned the PA.... Its that Fking GOOD!
If you are into production, no matter the style, this album you must study.
