I never really got the attraction to it. It was always a filler. Nothing more. What's it about? & what is it with the hat?
Hi Steve, the uplifting sound would never fit or make it to Disintegration, but I think soundwise it could have been a Wish-song.. Second your question. Wouldn't know what it is about, don't think it deals with a person we deal with afterwards or too late. My guts say it could be a feeling we're after and we're trying to describe in front of someone, not finding the words so our thoughts are always too late..it's the closest I get, but lyric-wise, it's not the strongest song.
Good you come up with the newspaper-line..Are we getting closer by thinking a newspaper is exactly the relection of yesterday's highlights...in this case : our thoughts we should have dealt with back yesterday are still actual and have an impact on how we feel today.. Maybe it's all about regret, it always comes back to us like 'yesterday'. Regret is a strong emotion that takes time to sink in..Have to break my head over the "2 - too"-thing. Maybe just an ordinary and short Prince-fixation..
You could be very right on this one..Re-read the lyrics with obituaries in mind and I believe it makes sense. A couple dying literally, as it gets an article in the papers. Or with Smith in mind : the end of a romance, the death of a couple as such with always someone dealing with the longing for yesterday/the memories more than the other, it is one of "2" stepping away ..
I agree it's not as dynamic as some of the others they have never played live but I enjoyed the one at TCT anyway. I must say if it is about death and obituaries it has mighty happy music attached to it. Or is that the joke? lol It could be about stalking too. He wishes he could be with her but he is always too late?
