"Death Valley Nights" as written by and Bouchard/meltzer....
Bleached by the sun
And scorned by the moon
If I make it 'til tomorrow noon
I'm leaving

'Tween the horror of space
And the terror of time
My heart in crystal
Down the line I'm screaming

What I need is a kiss from you babe
Before it's hangover time
What I need is some love from you babe
Before this stampede arrives

Desolate landscapes
Storybook bliss
Darling let me tell you
This is crazy

Hell of a memory
Is a Heaven a pain
Snow is cold but so is rain
Please save me

What I need is a kiss from you babe
Before it's hangover time
What I need is some love from you babe
Before the stampede arrives
I need you

    General CommentThis is the best 'morning after' song I've heard, a sentiment mainly captured by 'what I need is a kiss from you babe, before it's hangover time'. What a great line that is...this song is so damn catchy. I think in a fair world about 75% of the songs on Spectres would have been MASSIVE radio hits, they're all accessible, catchy singalong tunes with fine song-writing. 'Going Thru The Motions' should have been one of the biggest anthems of the 70s.

    I can pick up the morning-after hangover thing from this song but much of the rest seems to be some kind of dark nightmare, with a sci-fi feel.
