Random on my iPod: The Whitlams

12 08 2009


“There’s no aphrodisiac like loneliness. Truth, beauty, and a picture of you.”  Those lines always get me. My friend Sheeds from Melbourne sent me this gem from The Whitlams years ago when the original version was  a huge hit in Australia. One of the best and oddest lyrically of all songs about longing and loneliness and long distance love. It starts out sounding so sweet and solitary and then crescendos into this odd cyber-masturbatory fantasy…now set to orchestra! Epic. Just epic. And a wee bit creepy if you really listen to the lyrics.
