Well, it’s hard not to be flattered by hearing my own songs, osculating so harmoniously with one another. I like the fact that even I can’t tell the seams between them, but I especially like the sound of your voice. It’s got that scooped out, Plastic Ono Band tone (and trust me, I don’t use Lennon references unless I mean it) but with a very different melodic delivery… and no primal screaming.

I also found the lyrics to be very playful. Any song that mentions the noble abalone deserves a special mention. David Suzuki talked about them in an episode about biomimicry, I’ve been a fan ever since.

I am happy (and a bit relieved) you like it. I used some of your ‘o’ words (but not orgasm), and then the ones that appeared in my particular dictionary.
I too have been obsessed with abalone for a long time, for many reasons, their hardness yet inescapable vulnerability, the fact that they are studied by humans so that we too may create impenetrable body amour, which I guess swirls back to your original point.
However amazingly tough, they are disappearing. We can learn from this too, I think.

“Osculate me..”, where have you found this..! And you sing that with a kind of scientific “coldness”. I imagine you, dressed like a laboratory assistant, behind her microscope, studying this mysterious tangential point of the human beings.
”..et avec toi, la science de l’amour avance… C’est un grand pas pour l’humanité”..
Thanks for that..

In my part of the world the old abalone is presented at up scale dinners as an expensive treat. For me the taste despite the usual brown mushroomy sauce is not worth the price and hardly warrants the demise of this quixotic creature. I do however like the shells interior which has a rich Mother of Pearl appearance and is rather classy. Just like this song!!

Very epykaryotic…

Also, nice mastering ;-)

In 1980, this would have played just after “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” and just before “Do You Dream in Colour?”.

The temptation in this mix was to over-do the percussion. I’m glad you kept it in sync with the rest of the song. The mix here works very well.

The witty lyric and the appealingly languid delivery fit snugly into the synths. I particularly liked the little synth atmophere melody in the ending couple of dozen seconds.
