satellite of love


satellite's gone up to the skies
things like that drive me out of my mind
i watched it for a little while
i like to watch things on TV

satellite's gone way up to Mars
soon it'll be filled with parkin' cars
i watched it for a little while
i love to watch things on TV

i've been told that you've been bold
with harry, mark and john
monday, tuesday, wednesday to thursday
with harry, mark and john

(first time i heard this was as a young wet behind the ear bugger, in the vu boxset peel slowly & see. i gravitated to it and listened repetitively. didn't take drugs, but found it as a suitable drug. finally heard the lou reed transformer version when i was closer to 30s. somehow never got into the solo work until i was clear of my twenties. such lovely music. i think the beck cover is quite nice too. those fuckers in the background sure can sing, same with the transformer version. unreal business it is)
