I wanted to write about the song "Mixtapes that Lucy Made" by The Winter Club, mostly because it contains this line:
I wanted to kiss you; I don't know why, because I've never kissed a boy or girl before.
But, most of the lyrics are unintelligible to me, and are not online anywhere. So I guess I'll never know if the rest of the song is as asexy as this particular line. If you're jonesing for some British girl group action (and really, who isn't?), check out their Myspace page here.
While we're on the topic of songs, it occurred to me that I've never actually posted "Marx and Engels" here. This is unbelievable, as it is probably the most overtly asexual song currently known to humanity. Not only does it contain an asexual character (as I'd like to think), but it makes me feel a lot better about schlepping to the laundromat. Here are the lyrics:
"Marx and Engels"
by Belle and Sebastian
There's misery in all I hear and see
From the people on TV
After their tea when life begins again
They'll be happier than me
There are a thousand meals being made
From the view I saw today
I took a bet inside the launderette
With a girl from Wallasey.
She spoke in dialect I could not understand
But one thing she made clear
There was no coming on to her
There was no way...
There was no intellect
That she could respect
If it couldn't see
That the girl just wants to be
Left alone with Marx and Engels for a while
She's writing in the style
Of any riot girl.
What I like about Belle and Sebastian is how they make up their own strange little worlds inside their songs. "Marx and Engels", of course, is no exception. Here it is available for download on Yousendit.com. I hope it works!
