Come Elektra Tuesday.

So this is another song from 85/86 that we waited years for. And yet again when I finally heard it I was not disappointed. This has been my most played track of the last 6 Months. I love it. Addictive and was worthy of release.

So did it live up to your expectations?

It's a funky song and I really like it. Not what I imagined, but then I didn't dwell on it a lot.

"I like to watch."

I imagined it was going to sound like some weird but amazing song, along the lines of "Life Can Be So Nice" or "Do You Lie?". When I finally heard it, I wasn't ready for how funky it is. I was expecting more of an experimental song but I wasn't disappointed at all. Now, "Cosmic Day" on the other hand was a huge let down and is still a very overrated song, in my opinion of course.

dunno whats "full" but there are several versions up to 3:09 as far as I know.

both - come on elektra tuesday and cosmic day - are on my most beloved playlists.

dont think he didnt release the songs that he didnt release cause they were not worth it ... they just didnt fit into his concept at that point.

the only love there is is the love we make heart

I don't believe the full song is out there but I was speaking about the 2 minute snippet. For all the hype about that song and fights on Housequake about it, when I finally heard it I was totally disappointed. I still don't understand the unanimous praise and love it gets lol

Did not disappoint at all. Love it, love being able to add it to a purple continuum of historic music.

the horn lines sound like something from another song, and I cannot connect it. I'm thinking something from Sheila E/the Glamorous Life or the Time...

She got a movie star attitude the girl can't hide
Jean Harlow n her prime
Looka here
She got a spooky kind of half-moon look n her eyes
Scare a sane man out of his mind
She... she put U n a trance with the scent
Becomin' like a dog n heat
Ow
All the men that touch her came and went
1 kiss but at her feet
Ow

I can't stand a hour away from ur hips
Come Elektra Tuesday ur tongue on my lips
I don't need a vacation, ur love is a trip
And I think my personality about 2 flip, hit me

We got the night
Oh
I got the feelin' n my socks, baby

Listen 2 me
She drive an Aston Martin n violet and white
Sometime she let me washed it down
When it get 2 clean it still smelled like Tuesday night
BabalĂș when Elektra's around
Fascination will take U when she lay U up on her chest
Maybe Monday-long, hello the Elektra, U the best
But I got 2, I got 2, I got 2 get it on Tuesday, baby
Cuz Friday, huh, that's a little 2 long
Hey

Come Elektra Tuesday, Friday 2 long
Don't U make me wait, don't do me wrong
Uh

Come Elektra Tuesday, Friday 2 long
Come Elektra Tuesday, don't U do me wrong
Come Elektra Tuesday, I want U so strong
Come Elektra Tuesday

Come
Tuesday
U gotta, gotta
I wanna talk a little bit

Her body's so long, I climb it at night
N the hopes I 1 day reach the top
I'll suffer alone 2 know what frightens U
Until that day, till that day I... I won't ever stop

Come Elektra Tuesday
Come Elektra Tuesday
Body much 2 long, I got 2 have U 2night (Come Elektra Tuesday)
I got 2, uh, I got 2 have U 2night (Come Elektra Tuesday)

Hey
Ooh
Come Elektra Tuesday
Till Tuesday
Tuesday
Tuesday

A Liar Shall Not Tarry In My Presence

What's the matter with your life
Is poverty bringing U down?
Is the mailman jerking U 'round?
Did he put your million dollar check
In someone else's box?
Tell me, what's the m

Music professors should play this vocal to teach students how to stay "in the pocket." So sick.

"That's when stars collide. When there's space for what u want, and ur heart is open wide."
