MAGAZINE : THE LIGHT POURS OUT OF ME [REAL LIFE, 1978]

Μέρα των Φώτων ακούμε μια σειρά κομματιών, οργανικών κυρίως, με θέμα τους το φως και την …φώτιση. Ένα τραγούδι “υπαγορευμένο” από το προηγούμενο post, για το φινάλε αυτής της ενότητας : ο Howard Devoto είναι η “πηγή του φωτός” εδώ. Από το κλασικό άλμπουμ – ντεμπούτο των Magazine.
On Epiphany day we hear music about light and …enlightenment. A song “dictated” from the previous post, for the closing of this section :
Howard Devoto is the “source of light” here. From the classic Magazine’s debut album.

Time flies, time crawls
Like an insect up and down the walls
The light pours out of me
The light pours out of me
The conspiracy of silence ought
To revolutionize my thought
The light pours out of me
The light pours out of me
The cold light of day pours out of me
Leaving me black and so healthy
The light pours out of me
The light pours out of me
It jerks out of me like blood
In this still life, heart beats up love
The light pours out of me
The light pours out of me

    Very cool tune! Not quite New Wave, not quite Punk and hanging on to an original Rock & Roll sensibility. Fab!

      Magazine are certainly one of my top bands of this era. There have even better songs than this – I chose it for its theme and title.
