Early Go-Go's songs contest : the winner is Blades !

Blades (Starwood, 12th feb 1980)

video

(Belinda Carlisle / Jane Wiedlin / Margot Olavarria)


I'm being artistic
I'm drawing lines
My body is my canvas
I'm making marks in time

Feel the cold edge
Feel nothing inside
Caress the smoothness 
And watch it slide

Uh-oh, here I go
Playing with blades
Again and again
Uh-oh, here I go
Playing with blades
Again and again and again and again

No one seems to notice
I don't seem to care
It's my decision, my own life
And I don't intend to share

It's not a question of sanity
Or reaction to something said
No desire to analyse
Fascination with red


Uh-oh, here I go
Playing with blades
Again and again
Uh-oh, here I go
Playing with blades
Again and again and again
and again and again and again

  1. Classic composition and one of their best. This song could've been a single for the pre-BATB album never released. Long live the punk rawk Go Go's \m/

  2. Got to agree with you John. The more I listen to the pre BATB era the more I love that version of the band.
