298: I Love U in Me

The Arms of Orion single (1990) / The Hits/The B Sides (1993)
After civilisation collapses and we regress to feuding tribes in a post-fallout wasteland, the only music available to hear will be found in clockwork musicboxes. Revered fossils from the time when the benevolent demon of electricity could still be harnessed. These last pockets of captured sound will only be played at sacred consummation ceremonies; rituals where couples bless the scorched earth with coitus after reciting solemn vows of desire. In this Rite of Nuclear Spring I Love U in Me will be hymn number 7.

    “When she makin’ love it’s like surgery” is one of the most gloriously stupid lyrics I’ve ever heard. It’s one of those goofball Prince moments that makes me laugh out loud sometimes, especially when I’m listening on headphones in a public place. Anyway, cool song. I like that it’s about this woman being the expert and Prince following her lead. It’s a nice change from most sex songs.
