Send Ringtones to Cell

There is lambswool under my naked feet
The wool is soft and warm, gives off some kind of heat
A salamander scurries into flame to be destroyed
Imaginary creatures are trapped in birth on celluloid

    One of my favourite songs of all time. I'd kill to hear Suede cover it, would be perfect.. Curious, what did Win Butler say about this?

    Probably my favorite as well. I feel like I'm in the minority, though - would much rather hear this live with Phil singing. Listening to the 2007 Chicago recording right now - last time I saw them.

    Probably my favourite Genesis track. It's all Win Butlers fault :)

    Its the bottom of a staircase that spirals out of sight . . . One of the songs that really make me miss PG's vocals... His range—from very low and powerful, to high, sweet and soft.

    There's is lambswool under my naked feet... One of the songs that got very very big after Peter left.
