"American Science" as written by and Rhodes Le Bon....
It's a little bit late now
But there is times you will
Get a little bit out of hand
Making all of a spill
And if we can lay this down
You're going all the way
Take a look and I'll check it out
Cause I can always find it
Such a lonely Place... Ooooh
This room without your face...Ooooh
Ooooooh...American Science
All night long
She can two-step and sway
Ooooooh...it's such poor manners
Don't keep me waiting
Come lay down beside me
A little megalomania
Becomes you evidently
There ain't a thing you can't acquire
With your cling-wrap plaything
Just look at this state
I crawl around in a daze
Like symptomatic case
Of your soul persuasion
Such a lonely Place...Ooooh
It moves me into place...Ooooh
Ooooooh...American Science
All night long
She can two-step and sway
Ooooooh...it's such poor manners
Don't keep me waiting
Come lay down beside me
Such a lonely Place...Ooooh
It moves me into place...Ooooh
Ooooooh...American Science
All night long
She can two-step and sway
Ooooooh...it's such poor manners
Don't keep me waiting
Come lay down beside me

    General CommentI've always thought this was Simon LeBon's somewhat porny, appreciative English paean to the airbrushed, often artificial visual appeal of us American women. I've known a lot of foreign guys, and before they move to the US, or have lived long in this country, it seems a lot of them hold very distorted opinions about American women. I remember being on the M train here in NYC one night when an Egyptian Muslim tourist guy would not stop hitting on me and stalked me from car to car of the train. When I told him no, I would not sleep with him, he looked genuinely puzzled. His reply: "But you are American."

    The surplus of American porn that reaches foreign shores was a lot of the problem during the 1970s and 1980s when Simon LeBon was an impressionable red-blooded lad reading it. He's obviously fond of skin mags: "Girls on Film", "Skin Trade", "Electric Barbarella", anyone? :) And today the internet has made US porn even more available, so there's hardly a young man anywhere who hasn't been hit by it and made to think - impressionably - that all American women are shiny glossy suntanned stick figures with balloon breasts, inflated pink lips and butter-colored, frosted hair, ready to serve any kink on call.

    And that's what I've always thought, even as a teen in the Eighties listening to this fantastically chill, seductive song on the top of Side B of "Notorious":

    My American female opinion: "American Science" is another appreciative song by Simon LeBon about a sexual icon he really, really likes -- the fake, blonde, silicone-injected, 110-pound, heavy-breasted, narrow-waisted, long-legged, stiletto-heeled electric barbarella doll American pornography has made millions of men around the world come to our shores hoping to instantly see, and subtly expecting all American women to be and conform to.

    I'm not against porn, but I wish men overseas would recognize that it is fiction and produced as entertainment - and that American women are not all whores the way they often think and hope we'll be.

    General CommentI think this is about how people don't need human interactions anymore, they've got all sorts of toys to take care of that.
