One of only two top 40 hits in the long and storied career of Lou Barlow, this one benefited greatly from a January release, which helped a lot of alternative acts get higher than usual chart positions in the 1990s:
The late Ofra Haza's 'I'm Nin 'Alu'. Or a slight rejig of the lyrics 'I'm In A Loo'. Made all the more ironic because the full song title is 'I'm Nin 'Alu' (If The Doors Are Locked). Well, she wouldn't want someone catching her mid-flow.
No idea what the title means, but he's not going to be able to see his reflection walking round dark factories in sunglasses. Scary video, scary song, scarily forgettable. This is Sisters of Mercy doing 'Lucretia, My Reflection'
Robbie Robertson's 'Somewhere Down The Crazy River'. The kind of man who you would like to read to you before you go to bed, in that husky, commanding 'I've seen the world and I am well grounded and experienced, but prone to getting horrendously drunk every evening' sort of voice.
I well remember the above three. There was a legal fallout between Eldritch and Patricia Morrison, he claimed she was only there as eye candy and contributed nothing to SOM, so didn't pay her royalties...
