"She's In Fashion" as written by Brett Anderson and Neil John Codling....
She's the face on the radio she's the body on the morning show
She's there shaking it out on the scene
She's the colour of a magazine
And she's in fashion she's in fashion

She's employed where the sun don't set
And she's the shape of a cigarette
And she's the shake of a tambourine
And she's the colour of a magazine
And she's in fashion and she's in fashion

Oh and if she tells you 2 is 1 then 2 is 1 my love
Oh and if she tells you you should know,
Then you should know my love,
She is strung out on a TV dream,
And she's the taste of gasoline,
And she's as similar as you can get to the shape of a cigarette
And she's in fashion
(And the sunshine it blows my mind, and the wind blows my brain).

    General CommentI laughed at the Zoe Ball comment. Spot on.

    Yes, this song is possibly about Brett Anderson's former girlfriend Sam, who is a model. However, I'm more inclined to believe it is more general than just about one woman. This song can be seen as a credo for all women out there that fit the description - those very thin, posh sisters that are doing it for themselves, and have power over every person they touch.

    General Commentthis is a great song it was the song that let enjoy and like the alternative rock music. suede is a great band that i am sad because they break up last year OCT 2003. brett anderson( the vocal leader ) wrote this song to discribing his girlfriend Justin ( who is an indian model) and how she is working all the time and that you can see her and hear everywhere you go, he also saying that she is a very influencail person that will convience you with everything, even if it is wrong ( oh and if she tells you 2 is 1 then 2 is 1 my love) the video is great as well. i hope that you all will enjoy it.

    General CommentThis is a very stylish song. Very sassy, snooty, and a little biting. I love the clapping in it between verses.

    General CommentAt the time it was alleged to be about Zoe Ball, then presenter of the Radio 1 breakfast show but with no discernible talent.

    General CommentI think it's basically about the influeneces famous people can have on society and how some of us come to believe the things they say, and want to be like them. Especially with the use of the lines 'Oh and if she tells you 2 is 1
    Then 2 is 1 my love'. It's like saying they're so taken in by it, they'll believe anything.
    :]

    General CommentI like the "Protocol Demo" on the album "See You In The Next Life". It sounds better than the studio version imo.

    General CommentIrritatingly, when Paramount Comedy advertise Sex and the City, the song is cut down to:

    "She's the face on the radio, And she's the colour of a magazine"

    It just doesn't work!
