I want a perfect body, I want a perfect soul


Our glorious six-foot Salvia "Amistad"

The weather reverted back to an unnaturally warm and mellow tone today, and I have taken full advantage of it pottering in the extensive gardens here at Dolores Delargo Towers, enjoying the glorious blooms of fuchsias, salvias, begonia, asarina and cobaea, which are the best they've been all year!

Today happens to be the 50th birthday of arch-miserabilist Thom Yorke of Radiohead - however, although I love the original, as I am in a "Sunday music" mood I think it is far better to feature the faboo Postmodern Jukebox version of Thom'n'the boys' biggest-selling single...


When you were here before
Couldn't look you in the eye
You're just like an angel
Your skin makes me cry
You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
I wish I was special
You're so fucking special

But I'm a creep
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here

I don't care if it hurts
I want to have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul
I want you to notice
When I'm not around
You're so fucking special
I wish I was special

But I'm a creep
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here

Oh, oh

She's running out again
She's running out
She run run run run
Run

Whatever makes you happy
Whatever you want
You're so fucking special
I wish I was special

But I'm a creep
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here
I don't belong here


If it's not too much to ask, have a happy birthday, Mr Thomas Edward Yorke (born 7th October 1968)!

    1. They are firm favourites - and if you click the label "Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox" in the small print at the foot of the post, you'll find a host more that I've posted here before... Jx

    2. I must agree with Ms Scarlet. One can listen to this version without feeling like flinging oneself out of the nearest window.

    3. I adore Postmodern Jukebox - they even manage to make songs by such dross as Rihanna, Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber sound OK... Jx

    Not too bothered about the perfect soul.
