It's one of them comfortin' Moz songs.
That line about "they do not understand the urgency of life",
is pretty deep because ya gotta see everything as life and then
ya wouldn't treat folks like how they were treatin' Angel.
Come to think of it, The Savages did a answer line in Adore Life,
When I first heard this thing, it was the first new Moz song I'd heard since the Maladjusted stuff.
I remember I'd been waitin' for weeks for the Quarry record to come out and it was pretty excitin' at the time.
Always gonna think fondly of this thing just for that reason alone.
When those drums...
Likin' how Lou sings the whole first part of Coney Island Baby on the live record instead of
how he just talks it more on the studio version.
Some of them parts are great like "The strangest dude I ever knew..." "When ya all alone and
lonely..." "Hey Lou Reed, you'll never be a human bein'..."...
That live Lou Reed record has my favorite version of Coney Island Baby.
Think I heard somewhere that Lou recorded that album with state-of-the-art
equipment so I'm kinda wonderin' if the sound quality is real good on vinyl.
Kinda like the music on this one.
It's good to hear Moz over strings and things that are kinda different.
Never really figured this song was about some sicko kid abuse though.
Always thought Moz was talkin' about influencin' kids to see past some
of the norms of society.
