Paddy McAloon on Michael and Mercy:

“With ‘Michael’ I just thought it was such dramatic material. The idea of Lucifer banished from heaven and trying to be let back in. The idea of him in this cold and lonely place. That’s why the song is so high-tech, to denote that. Then I followed that with ‘Mercy’ which is a much more intimate plea for forgiveness. You can read them as unconnected but they’re supposed to be a response to each other. But the subject matter is just so fantastic. Every bit as dramatic as ‘Dick Tracy’.” - NME, August 11, 1990

On ‘Michael’: “I just liked the idea of the devil thinking that because when he was kicked out he missed out on a real career opportunity.” - Tracks, September 1990

All the jobs I've ever held, positions I have known
The one I was a fool to leave was right hand to the throne
Ambition took me speed of light to God's exclusion zone

    Being a terrible heathen, I like songs that are not 'religous' but have religous themes

    If you are on the side of good, where does that leave me?
