    This and Lost are awe-inspiringly passionates songs. All Van der Graaf songs are, but those two in particular, alone with Child Like Faith in Childhood's End to wonders for me.

    nixatlast, you wondered if this love was unrequited. I think probably requited but only until the following morning when La Rossa has no further use for him. What I wonder is did Alice leave on Tuesday because of this, or was this the rebound after she left?

    Marvellous stuff. Apart from Peter's undoubted vocal genius, let's not forget how bloody good Jaxon, Hugh and Guy always are

    LakeGlade12, I don't hear anger I hear hopelessness. I feel very sad whenever I listen to La Rossa; she's been his friend for years and he's boasted of his freedom and fidelity but he no longer can resist the warmth of her body or touch of her lips. Like an organ grinder's monkey he's not in control and he does something that he knows he shouldn't. And as a consequence in another song (Over - Lost and Found) he asks this question - Is one moment of perfect passion worth a lifetime of remorse?

    Bite your hand of music. Love the raw anger (and a pinch of madness) being displayed here. That ending is just fantastic!
