"Jackie Collins Existential Question Time" as written by James Bradfield, Richard Edwards, Nicholas Jones and Sean Moore....
Tonight we beg, tonight we beg the question
If a married man, if a married man fucks a Catholic
And his wife dies without knowing
Does that make him unfaithful, people?

Oh mummy what's a sex pistol?
Oh mummy what's a sex pistol?
Oh mummy what's a sex pistol?
Oh mummy what's a sex pistol?

Tonight we beg, tonight we beg the question
If a married man, if a married man fucks a Catholic
Does that mean you have gone to seed?
Or does that mean you owe him nothing?

Oh mummy what's a sex pistol?
Oh mummy what's a sex pistol?
Oh mummy what's a sex pistol?
Oh mummy what's a sex pistol?

A situationist sisterhood of Jackie and Joan
Separates us the questions without a home
A situationist sisterhood of Jackie and Joan
Separates us the questions without a home

    Tonight we beg, tonight we beg the question

    General CommentMost people either value sex to such a degree that they try to preserve its 'purity' or devalue sex so much that they see it as only an 'animalistic' act. I think JCEQT is about trying to find a middle ground between the two.

    General CommentI think it's "fucks a Catholic" not "begs a Catholic."

    General CommentExistential question means questioning the meaning of life. Jackie Collins is a lowbrow novelist who writes trite books obsessing on relationships more about lust than love. I'm sure it really peeved Richey that more people cared about reading her idiotic novels than reading thought provoking books.

    "Situationist sisterhood of Jackie and Joan. Separates us the questions without a home."

    Jackie's books, and her sister Joan's movie roles, often glorify infidelity and sex without a loving relationship. Richey, although according to Nicky he never really had a real relationship and often mocked relationships (like on Life Becoming A Landslide) really had longings for a serious romance, even if he really didn't believe in it. Towards the end of his life he grew very conservative in his views on sex and spoke out against the 90s anti-monogamy sexual relationship as "love" (the question without a home.)

    General CommentIt's a shame the "And if you buy new lingerie, but your husband doesn't notice" line was left out

    My OpinionWas this just a rumour or are a large amount of the lyrics on the album, just thoughts from Richie (former band member that "disappeared") before he er... went?

    That would explain the randomness/crapness of the lyrics... perhaps I'm just being ignorant about existentialism and jackie collins...

    General CommentThe lyrics come from a book of drawings and songs that Richey wrote and gave to Nicky a few weeks before he disappeared. They're no more distorted than any of Richey's lyrics that appeared on Everything Must Go.
