I knew this lyric from it's sampled use first... this original is much prettier, but nostalgia still lends a lot of joy to the dance track for me.

To the haters and those that want instant aural gratification... this song is a story about the mythical sirens that called mariners to their watery death on the seas.  Read up about the mythical creatures, try to imagine what it was like for those God fearing men when they lived their lives on the terrible seas.

Then you might appreciate a little more the reason for the breathlessness and longing in this song about those sirens calling from afar and luring men into the watery depths. 

 

Funny. I got instant aural gratification from this within seconds of first listen ...................................

Wonderful! Tarantula is my favorite, though, for the lyrics and chord changes; if someone can add that, I would appreciate it.

Indeed! Who in 1984 was making music this amazing? Evocative, angry, arrogant, hurt and hurtful, needy, confused, lost and longing. So much to say with such spare instrumentals and that voice....that voice....and Tim Buckley! Good Grief!

I'll take it though. Hope you are enjoying your day off when I'm still working.

Once again today.
I suppose there's a nice-sized library of playlists, perhaps to carry on the RP experience after Bill leaves this world.
But to the song itself. I'd given it a 3 originally, and I'm going to have to stay there. It starts out okay but just doesn't seem to end, and the extra-nasal quality of the singer's voice, it's just a bit too much, at least for me.
