about

A Short Dark Stranger does Elvis Presley (with the hip shaking, but without the burgers..)

Oh, and with a lot more explosions!

lyrics

I don't know what I see in you
The antithesis of all I do
For nothing's sacred to a heart
That wouldn't care - man blown apart!

I've turned myself black & white
Pandering to you
Though Occam's Razor says "you're just a bitch"..
(And all my friends do too..)

Still -

I'm a fool for fancying you

I'm a fool but not an idiot
And I see that you are
Volatile - but with such style
And that's how I've been caught!

And what can I do?

And all your qualities I abhor
Merely make me crave you more and more!
(Though I can see your many flaws)
You hold my heart - but you don't deserve it!
For all you are is so self serving!

You put your put downs, cheap jokes
On your "at my expense account"
Still - your twinkling eyes of cruelty
Knock my senses out..

Still -

I'm a fool for fancying you

I'm a fool but not an idiot
And I see that you are
Volatile - but with such style
And that's how I've been caught!

Behind the barricades of your bitchiness
Is there affection in your eyes?
Still - I fan the flames of your ego
To such a supercilious size!
He sighs
He sighs
He sighs -
And I don't know why!

But -

I'm a fool for fancying you
I'm a fool for fancying you

When you surrender your heart
To a vulgar little tart
Then all you will feel
Is how she wants you to feel..

How she'll make you reel!

about

A Short Dark Stranger Leeds, UK

A Leeds based purveyor of pumping power pop!

80s / 90s style throbbing, crashingly catchy (and literally exploding) synth-pop epics cross fertilised with cathartic, heartfelt, emotionally honest yet wittily pithy, observant and self deprecatingly amusing lyrics.

The resulting hybrid is an entirely new musical species - and (dare I say it?) an act of "musical selection"!
