In Heaven, everything is fine. You've got your good things, and the Pixies have mine.
David Lynch wrote the lyrics to this song, but the music was by a fellow named Peter Ivers, who died a sadly violent death.

I haven't seen Eraserhead yet.

But I love this song.

Miranda Sex Garden do magnificent things with it, too.

BoPo - I love to see Peter Ivers even getting a namecheck. He's a greatly underappreciated artist. I just love those two mid 70's albums. But in all of these years, I never knew he wrote the words to Lady in the Radiator Song - asong I never really paid attetnion to until I heard the Pixies version.

Double thanks for the wiki link, where I noticed that a book just came out about Ivers' murder and life. His murder is something that's intrigued me for about 2 decades, based soley on the few paragraphs I had read in (I think) Rolling Stone when it happened. I just ordered it from Amazon, not that I need more books to have and not find time to read.

I looked on Amazon for his album that was in that Wiki link, Terminal Love... people are selling it for 300 bucks! Yeesh. I'd love to hear some of his other music, but that is NOT in the budget.

[gasp - spit take - gasp] Three Hundred bucks?!?! I wish my copy was in better shape.

This sparked me to relisten to the two albums I have. He's definitely an acquired taste - and while I absolutely love many of his songs, he has at least a few that still grate. I think everyone I have tried to turn onto Peter Ivers have returned a "you got to be fucking kidding me?" type reaction. My favorite review of Peter Ivers is: "like Captain Beefheart fronting Chicago". Although one of my friends would demand that I add "it's nearly as cool as that makes it sound like it could be".
