If I Had A Heart by FEVER RAY

Actually, the song "owning" me right now exists only in my head...
Got on the metro this morning, and this was on my mp3 player:
When I sat down, I was opposite a pleasant-looking black woman who looked to be in her 40's. She had a kind of thin smile on her face, and looked around at me and the other passengers... and then, in a very low, matter-of-fact tone, she began telling us all that we were Satan-worshippers, going to hell, the Whore of Babylon walks the streets, etc. And since my headphones aren't turned up that loud, it all came through very clearly over the music, almost rhythmically. Went on for a good five minutes, till she got off.
And while that sort of encounter isn't unusual in my daily commute, the juxtapostion against the music was right out of My Life in the Bush of Ghosts, but with an immediacy that Eno and Byrne could have only dreamed about. Wish to hell I could have recorded it.
I can't believe that after all these many times I've heard this song only today I've sat and really listened to it. It makes me feel so weird. It's creepy how much he nails obsession, at least as I have experienced it.

Hospitality - Eighth Avenue
Both from albums that are good (or great, in the case of The Ruby Suns) as a whole, but these are the tracks I find myself playing daily at the moment.
These two have been dominating my ears for a few days. A friend of mine asked me how does it feel like to have a daughter. That conversation led to this:
...which led to this:
They really used to make some great film music.
Dug out an old Rebirth of Cool album and it had this on it. So then I had to get the original out too.
One of the very few songs where I like both, very different, mixes equally. Also just love this song because it's so Naked Lunch inspired.
The Kruder & Dorfmeister mix
