"2 Wicky" as written by Burt Bacharach, Hal David, Raymond Geerts and Alex Maria Johan Callier....

Prophet 60091, this is the flight number of our galactic sun.
Prophet 60091, before we start you should know that you're not the only one who can hurt me.

SH10151, this is the serial number of our orbital gun.
SH10151, you better be sure before you leave me for another one, you can hurt me.
I can hurt you.
You can hurt.
You can hurt me.
I can hurt you.
But you better be sure before you leave me for another one, I can hurt you.
You can hurt me.
But you better be sure before you leave me for another one...

    My Interpretationthey could be referring to the prophet-600 and the sh-101 synthesizers. makes sense because these synths have a lot of knobs - wicky wicky!

    My InterpretationI love this song.

    At first, I thought it was about a woman that's getting romantically involved with with a man she just met, and was expressing her fears about getting burned in this very new relationship.

    I was just now googling for SH10151 to see what that's about, and someone created a t-shirt with a orbital gun and the serial number. (zazzle.com/…)

    That made me wonder if this song is about Mutual Assured Destruction.

    Prophet 60091: could be a flight number for a space rocket that is going to fire the orbital gun into orbit.

    "Before we start you should know that you're not the only one"
    She's a country or ambassador and is about to start some kind of defence treaty meeting. Other parties to the meeting have powerful weapons.

    "Who can hurt me"
    But wants to show weakness, and that will be willing to make concessions for the treaty to work.

    "SH10151, This is the serial number of our orbital gun"
    could be referring to a powerful devastating weapon, and other parties are aware of the destructive power of it.

    "You better be sure before you leave me for another one"
    If the other parties in the treaty want to abandon it, they really better be ready for the consequences.... because.....

    "You can hurt me
    I can hurt you
    You can hurt me" -- the consequences will be MAD (mutually assured destruction).

    General CommentI don't get it... Maybe she's fighting with some guy while watching Battlestar Galactica.

    General CommentYes Hooverphonic is Belgian and English is not their first language. But they DO know much English... hence the fact that all their music is written in English.

    I don't know the meaning behind the song, but Hooverphonic has been known for a lot of wordplay in their songs so I'm sure there is one in there.

    General CommentUm, if 60091 was discovered in '99, then this song has nothing to do with that discovery. This song was recorded 4 years earlier.

    General CommentSeeing as I heard the band named the albun (Blue Wonder Power Milk) because the words sounded cool together, and because they are Belgian and might not know much English, I often think their songs don't mean much of anything and are just words put together to sound cool. I love their music, but as much as I try to get the "hidden meaning" in their songs, I just think they often put words together for their sound...which is okay.

    General Comment60091 is the designation of an asteroid discovered in 1999; the prophet part, i donno. they might have just added it.

    still cant figure out sh10151 though.

    General CommentChild--

    I agree with the first part about the sun and its relationship to the man. I think that's a really cool interpretation of the song.

    I don't know about the gun. Maybe "orbital gun" is just a metonymy for a spaceship...
