Robyn Hitchcock - (Spoken Interlude) (6) lyrics
And now, by the light of the tomato, this is Captain Keegan.
Yeah, anyway ...
This is a really comfortable song.
Its the musical equivalent of a sofa or a contour fitted chair.
Its unable to cause you any pain, whatsoever.
I mean, you know ...
Unless your actually hearing the harmonics of this kind of thing is painful
but its designed not to upset you in the least.
Its not even bland.
You know, you couldn't say "This is annoyingly uncomfortable".
Its like, I was in a lobby once in Minneapolis and
... in fact, there was a whole hotel in front of it as well ...
And, I was in the lobby, and ...
It was icy outside; there were people with ice picks
and they were just hauling themselves along the surface
like they do when, you know, they turn the screen horizontally.
And they were inching their way along Nicollet Mall.
And there was a howling blizzard.
And inside it was very ...
There was this muzac playing in the lobby.
And I had a hangover.
And I was carrying a meat cleaver.
And I went up to the desk and I said "Could you turn the muzak down please".
And they said "I'm sorry sir, we can't".
And I said, I took my cleaver out and I said, "Why not?".
And they said "Because its pleasing".
