"Out Of The Blue" as written by Phil Manzanera and Bryan Ferry....
All you cares
Now they seem
Oh so far away
All your fears
I fear I once shared
Now I know

There's a future
For all of us
Not so long ago
I was so scared
You seemed so sad
I could see

Through your twisted smile
So unsure
Always confused
Pale blue eyes
Gazing down
From your ivory tower
Through the haze

All broken and bruised
Then: out of the blue
Love came rushing in
Out of the sky
Came the sun
Out of left field
Came a lucky day
Out of the blue
No more pain
I don't mind
If it's only
A passing craze
Throwaway lines
Often ring true
If I were you

I would stay
For a little while
I you were me
Would you walk out
In style?

    General CommentThe subliminal beginning - that double beat that keeps pulsing harder - until the song ignites and lifts off into the atmosphere...
    [something about someone falling in love - or just getting obsessed momentarily (?)]
    The spiraling end - the crazy upward soaring sound - like getting shot out of a vortex - out of the blue and into the stratosphere - out of the blue and into the absolute freedom of space - liberation from gravity - it sounds like a piece of rocket burning up in mid-flight - or the sound of a passing comet...

    I LOVE Roxy Music. Greatest Band ever. Yup. It's true.

    General CommentI love the text of this song, and I usually don't care much for lyrics.
    Fantastic with this electric violin solo too.
    One of the best Roxy Music / Brian Ferry songs in my opinion.
