Another Satellite originally appeared on Skylarking, although the popularity of Dear God on the b-side of Grass, resulted in it being dropped from reissues of the album at the time.

The song is reportedly about Andy Partridge's feelings towards Erica Wexler's advances on him while he was still married. However, the twosome ended up together after Partridge and his wife divorced, and are still together today.

The version appearing on Rag & Bone Buffet is a live BBC session.

My heart is taken it's not lost in space
And I don't want to see your mooney mooney face
I say why on earth do you revolve around me
Aren't you aware of the gravity

  • This one must have been lost in the sessions for 'Before and After Science".
  • Different objects orbiting around a bigger object is a pretty brilliant metaphor for polygamy. And that guitar sound is humongous!
  • love the vocals! and the guitar!
  • Always get emotional from this song, which is not easy :-)
  • Where the fuck did they get Bob Pollard for this song?!
