ArtLung: I am Joe Crawford. Welcome to my website circa July 2008. I am a web developer. I live in Moorpark, California, USA. I work in Los Angeles, and have lived elsewhere and done many surprising things. I put up the first ArtLung website 12 years ago, moved it to artlung.com 10 years ago, nd I've been blogging for 7 years. I'm still learning, every day. Welcome.

Re-Make/Re-Model 2008 Aug 19

I’ve been doing some cultural re-evaluations here in the past few days. Among them is Roxy Music, a set of 1970s records I acquired includes their first, Roxy Music, from 1972. The first track, Re-Make/Re-Model absolutely blew me away with its audacity, and I actually felt some shame over having been a Roxy fan for 24 years and never having heard this song. Enjoy this video version of the track. The quality is middling, but seeing Mr. Brian Eno in glam make-up and a leopard print blouse makes up for it.

Lyrics, and yes, I believe that refrain is CPL593H. Too bad I was in the wrong country and only two years old, or I would have loved to have hung out with these guys.

I tried but I could not find a way
Looking back all I did was look away
Next time is the best time
We all know
But if there is no next time where to go?
She’s the sweetest queen I’ve ever seen
(C P L 5 9 3 H !)
See here she comes, see what I mean?
(C P L 5 9 3 H !)
I could talk talk talk, talk myself to death
But I believe I would only waste my breath
Ooh–Show me!

(C P L 5 9 3 H !)

(C P L 5 9 3 H !)
I tried but I could not find a way
Looking back all I did was look away
Next time is the best time
We all know
But if there is no next time where to go?
She’s the sweetest queen I’ve ever seen
(C P L 5 9 3 H !)
See here she comes, see what I mean?
(C P L 5 9 3 H !)
I could talk talk talk, talk myself to death
But I believe I would only waste my breath
