Worse than Hitler...

At Writing Popular Verse.

Jas Mann, the 'could-be' genius behind pop legend's 'Babylon Zoo'

Mann: As 'facist folk'

Adolf Hitler, for all his faults, was at least never guilty of trying to write a pop song.

However, if Hitler (or, indeed anyone else throughout the aeons of human existence, for that matter), had decided to turn a hand to the structuring of popular verse, it is extremely doubtful they could have rivalled the bombastic, lyrical idiocy so wantonly displayed in Babylon Zoo's Number 1, smash-hit 'Spaceman'.

So, anyway, let's re-cap...

Spaceman

Pungent smells
They consumate my home
Beyond the black horizon
Trying to take control
See my girl
She shivers in her bones
The sun in zenith rising
Trying to take us all

There's a fire between us
So where is your god?
There's a fire between us
I can't get off the carousel

Intergalatic Christ...

The sickening taste of the morbid jokes
Images of fascist folks
Beam me up 'cos I can't win

Spaceman,
I always wanted you to go into space, man.

It's time to terminate the great white world
Morbid fascination
Television takes control
Decimation
Different races fall
Electronic information tampers with your soul

There's a fire between us
So where is your god?
There's a fire between us
I can't get off the carousel

Intergalactic Christ...

Spaceman,
I always wanted you to go into space, man.
