Roxy Music

Lyrics:

I could feel at the time
There was no way of knowing
Fallen leaves in the night
Who can say where they´re blowing
As free as the wind
Hopefully learning
Why the sea on the tide
Has no way of turning
More than this – there is nothing
More than this – tell me one thing
More than this – there is nothing
It was fun for a while
There was no way of knowing
Like a dream in the night
Who can say where we´re going
No care in the world
Maybe I´m learning
Why the sea on the tide
Has no way of turning
More than this – there is nothing
More than this – tell me one thing
More than this – there is nothing

Roxy Music

You know there’s no way that we can write about Everything but the Girl without posting also on the subject of Bryan Ferry and Roxy Music.

Consider first the degrees of separation between Bryan Ferry and Bono? It’s only 1° of separation really and that’s Brian Eno, the estimable producer of most of Roxy music’s discography and a good deal of early U2.

Eno is an additional bandmember of every group he produces.  In Roxy Music, Brian Eno was one of the founding members. ENO’s synth layered, the ethereal sound is unmistakable.  One recognizes it straight away.   The Talking Heads also utilized Eno in their first couple of releases.

I was introduced to Roxy Music by my Senior year HS girlfriend, who was much more plugged into the goth and new wave music scene than I was. Here is the first track I heard from Roxy with Bauhaus vocal by none other than Bryan Ferry.  I will not admit to fashioning my wardrobe after Mr. Ferry but will admit to being better dressed than most if not all of my cohorts after this early exposure to Roxy Music.
