Love Missile F1 Eleven  

Written by Martin Degville & Neil Whitmore/ Produced by David Bowie & Tony Visconti


US bombs cruisin' overhead
There goes my love rocket red
Shoot it up....
Shoot it up....
Blaster bomb bomb bomb ahead
Multi millions still unfed
Amondo teeno givin' head
Shoot it up....
Shoot it up....
Hold me shake me, I'm all shook up
Psycho maniac interblend, shoot it up
Now shoot it up
Shoot it up
Shoot it up
Shoot it up....
Teenage crime now fashion's dead
Shoot it up
There goes my love rocket red
Shoot it up
Shoot it up
Shoot it up
Shoot it up
Shoot it up

...the reason of the unreason with which my reason is afflicted so weakens my reason that with reason I murmur at your beauty;..

WOW Miss Cucumber, I've been looking all over for these!

Well that's like your opinion, man.

Fantastic Voyage and F1-11 new [re: Cucumber]  

Why did David Bowie chose this song to cover and put on a single as an extra? I feel there is a link with the message in Fantastic Voyage, which Bowie is playing right now on tour (with the lyric we never get old, coincedence maybe, but still). Look for the lyric in FV: It's a moving world, but that's no reason to shoot some of those missiles. Another hint? I don't know, I'm not very good in this interpretation stuff at all

Combine these two songs with the dark interpretation of the world these days in Fall Dog Bombs the Moon and a concept shows up again.

Anyone?

Laugh Missile F1 Eleven new [re: Cucumber]  

Just a little background info on the band and the track we used to laugh our heads of about in the 80s.

From allllmusic.com:
Led by former Generation X member Tony James, the new wave group Sigue Sigue Sputnik raised selling out to an art form. The concept behind Sigue Sigue Sputnik was simple: the band adopted a postmodern, ironic style and sound, and marketed it to the hilt, saturating the media with slogans and interviews. James didn't even intend the band to be musical; he recruited Martin Degville, Neal X, Chris Cavanagh, and Ray Mayhew partially because they lacked extensive musical experience. After a publicity campaign designed to solicit a record contract, the band signed with EMI; they released their first single, "Love Missile F1-11," in early 1986, and it hit number three on the U.K. charts. Sigue Sigue Sputnik sold the space between tracks to advertisers on their debut album, Flaunt It. Despite the massive marketing campaign, the album fell on deaf ears, as did the more serious follow-up, Dress for Excess (1988), which featured the slogan "This time it's music" on the album cover. The group split soon after the release of Dress for Excess. James was a member of Sisters of Mercy for a short time in 1991."

Great fun hearing Bowie's cover. I said it before: It should be done live - great encore material.

And I find NoGames connection to "Fall Dog Boms The Moon" worth thinking about. Bowie or the band could have been reminded of Love Missile while doing that song. Very well possible.

And I want to believe
In the madness that calls 'now'

I think you've got the point in here. I believe that there is always invible message between the words in Bowies lyrics. You just gotto figure it out.

Fantastic Voyage sounds nothing like Love Missile.

Love Missile makes me horny.

Psycho maniac interblend, shoot it up. Shoot it up now.

Same with I can't explain, another cover. Somehow the original doesn't have that extra 'umph'.

Psycho maniac interblend, shoot it up. Shoot it up now.

Now that I think about it, it sounds like something Beltene would write. And it's a great song to give head to.

Shoot it out!
