Cocteau Twins - “Hazel” - Brixton, 1982
… sick as in gross, you could tell a man wrote it.
I know Pseudo Echo from Friday the 13th V, where the misfit girl (irl she was a mime) does outrageously great dancing, and gets hacked, to His Eyes. The song reminds me of my summer job since I’ve worked twice on Friday The 13th, and I had listened to that song and watched the films before those shifts. I’ve been listening to spooky~ music in the spirit of Halloween, so His Eyes has been remembered and re-loved. Four nights ago, I thought since I love His Eyes so much, I’m sure I would like more of their stuff… which eh, comme ci comme ca. I love bits of a couple of songs, but not the songs entirely, so the whole experience is kind of wonky for me. Most of their choruses are snoozey, but the synth is great and the singer’s voice is really-really attractive (and he was cute for a few years too.) so I listened and watched videos for hours. Destination Unknown was the first different song I picked to listen to because I thought it could have been a Missing Persons cover, and Missing Persons is strangely one of my most listened to bands, so I was really curious. It’s not a cover. They also have a song called To The Shore, which I thought that could have been a ‘Duran cover. It’s not a cover either… Girl. So yeah, I’m jamming on A Beat For You, Don’t Go, and Destination Unknown, which is becoming my favorite song now and I found a video for it, so that’s super. I get a Blue Monday vibe from it. Like, that intro is golden.
