Black Star (4:07)

Cover of The Bends

From The Bends and 23 other releases

For Thom, this song is special. Although he has never offered an explanation of it, throughout 1995-96, when the band played it live, he did introduce it in various ways - declaring, for instance, that the song is about “Sex in the morning. Which is the best time to have it. As long as you’ve cleaned your teeth beforehand”. The lyrics probe the destruction of a relationship and touch on sex with a third party.

You're still standing in your dressing gown
Well what am I to do?
