And now for something seedy.......Venus in Furs


The Velvet Underground were a culture shock in the late sixties........Diametrically different from the Beatles "pop" and generally "happy" tunes...they sang of seedy sex.......sordid tales.....and the "underbelly" of life ...led by the Incredible Lou Reed and with "famous for 15 minutes" Andy Warhol as their mentor they made a mark on music and culture that will still be spoken of in 100 years time

One of their most famous songs is Venus in Furs....if you get the chance to listen to it......take that chance......its powerful....seedy...sordid......possessive...but amazing...way ahead of its time...its iconic

Shiny, Shiny,shiny boots of leather
Whiplash girlchild in the dark
Clubs and bells...your servant, dont forsake him
Strike dear Mistress,and cure his heart

Downy sins of streetlight fancies
Chase the costumes she shall wear
Ermine furs adorn the imperious
Severin,severin awaits you there

I am tired,I am weary
I could sleep for a thousand years
A thousand dreams that would awake me
Different colours made of tears

Kiss the boot of shiny,shiny leather
Shiny leather in the dark
Tongue of thongs,the belt that does await you
Strike, dear Mistress,and cure his heart

Severin,severin,speak so lightly
Severin,down on your bended knee
Taste the whip,in love not given lightly
Taste the whip,now plead for me

I am tired,I am weary
I could sleep for a thousand years
A thousand dreams that would awake me
Different colours made of tears

Shiny,shiny,shiny boots of leather
Whiplash,girlchild in the dark
Severin,your servant comes in bells,please dont forsake him
Strike,dear Mistress,and cure his heart


As I say...an amazing song......take the chance to try and listen to it
