Mother, see you in the may when I'm a boy.
Believer - monologue exemplifies a lust.
It's true.

Funny - how it only seems to work at night.
Jeweler, pick me something pretty for my wife.
It's so true,
So true.

Mother, see you in the may when I'm a boy.
Believer - monologue exemplifies a lust.
It's so true,
So true.

It sounds like there are a number of influences in this song.
Great tune. Why such a low rating.
This song consistently makes me stop what I'm doing to see what it is every time I hear it.
Love it! The Prince influence is smothered all over this one!
Good pop. Nice WTF factor. Off to investigate.

So true.
Nice Tune! Thought I was listening to China Crises? Think I'll check Blood Orange out.
Cheers
How about some Mandolin Orange?

I finally realized the source of the familiarity — elements of this bear strong resemblance to the 1983 song "Chance" by Big Country...

Good description; I agree.  Incidentally, I played in a band called The Inscrutable Insouciance of Pop when I was in college.

Sutphin Boulevard is in Queens, NY. It's a subway stop on the F and E lines.

The bottom end on this song is outrageous! Sitting on the beach in Delray Beach, FL with my new HK Onyx bluetooth... Kick ass!

This beat reminds me very much of the Queen song; Dancer.
                                    Drive
               
                   Don't go as far as a call girl
                    Still it  takes two to tango.
                  Honey, she said.Remember,
                           You said jeweler.
                             How can you
                  Disdain something you so
                    Highly value in yourself.
