"Numan-esque darkness, Howard Willing's pet project of love. Got no here, but not poorly so. Just re-established that the song as-is is fine and the debate ensued if it was 'good enough.' (Same debate every song!)" -BC, SP Nexus 2014-04-10

"I accused Howard of falling in love with the original demo sound; a condition called 'demoitis.' A 30-minute discussion followed, where said producer reiterated his belief the song could be a single. And though I don't disagree, the legacy of SP is to make adaptations of different styles that in their hybridity create singularity. Where I've failed at that (often) sit as odd blights, and where I've succeeded at that (enough), tower epics. Sounds grand, eh?" -BC, 2014-04-19

"Senor Howard got his wish, as we began with MONUMENTS; the cause celeb. Fitting the new arrangement, I was quickly able to build up an arrangement that accentuated rather than fought the noir: drums, keys, bass, and a sublimated guitar that aped said bass. Jeff was next, copying the signature melody line. Howard frowned. 'What the f&%! do you want from me?' Jeff exploded, smashing to bits his guitar. Actually that didn't happen, except the part about Howard frowning; which effectively killed Jeff's 'moment.' I interjected. 'Look, the song is essentially unchanged from my original demo. So let's just accept that it can only more forward by shades.' And I said this as I swept up the chards of Jeff's aborted try." -BC, 2014-04-20

 

Lyrics

I feel alright, I feel alright tonight
And everywhere I go it's shining bright
Alright, alright, alright
Alright, alright, alright

Love can dust you easy as you know
And dust must make you feel slow
'Cause when you shake what's pleasing then you'll go
I know, I know you'll go

Lover you're strange
Lover you're strange
Lover you're strange to me

I feel alright, I feel alright tonight
And everywhere I go it's shining bright
Alright, alright, alright
Alright, alright, alright

Vespers in the evening of your soul
And whispers carry as they're sewn
And dulled by every feeling that I've known [written: that I know]
Take hold, babe, take hold

Lover you're strange
Lover you're strange
Lover you're strange to me

And what do you want me to do?
It's all gone mad
And what do you want me to say?
I'm lost like you

I feel alright, I feel alright tonight
And everywhere I go it's shining bright
Alright, alright, alright
Alright, alright, alright

I feel alright, I feel alright tonight
And everywhere I go it's shining bright
Alright, alright, alright
Alright, alright, alright
