"Warm Leatherette" as written by and Daniel Otto Miller....
Warm leatherette,
See the breaking glass,
Beneath the underpass.

Warm leatherette,
Feel the crushing steel,
Feel the steering wheel.

Warm leatherette melts,
On your burning flesh,
You can see your reflection,
On the luminescent dash.

Warm leatherette,
A tear of petrol,
Is in your eye,
The hand brake,
Penetrates your thigh.

A tear of petrol,
Is in your eye,
Quick let's make love,
Before we die.

On warm leatherette,
Join the carcrash set.

    General CommentThis song is inspired by J.G. Ballard's novel Crash, about the sexual possibilities of car accident trauma.

    General CommentIt's hard to overstate the importance this track had on the development of New Wave music. She is overlooked these days, but I think she and David Byrne are the parents of New Wave.
