"De-Luxe" as written by and Emma Anderson....
I've been waiting on the slide
Suggest I open wide
No incentive to hide
Happy coursing through my veins
Don't even know my name
When I'm up you're coming down

Inside of me, some sight to see
Some sight to feel our earthy bed

When we're wrapped in polythene
What's that supposed to mean
Paper flowers bring me luck
No birds in sight I fear
Stick sticks in you my dear
When I'm up you're coming down

Some say I'm vague
And I'd easily fade
Foolish parade of fantasy

Drink in your eyes
Drink in you sighs
Grass in my thighs my aching legs

    General CommentI always thought it was about having sex outside. On a playground, no less (I thought it was "I've been waiting on the slide").

    it's slide, not side
    "I've been waiting on the slide"

    General CommentI remember reading an interveiw with LUSH in which miki claimed that this song was "about having sex at 9 in the morning while high on X..." Sounds about right...

    General CommentMaybe the sexiest alt-rock song ever.

    I think it IS about having sex outside in a playground. Or at least in a park, near the playground, where she's waited for her boy to make his move.

    25 years ago for a woman to be this bold about her sexuality, singing about "suggest I open wide," "when I'm up you're coming down" (lifting her hips as he's thrusting), "inside of me," and finally "my aching legs" (after having very active sex). Also, if they were on X, the drug retards orgasm, so it might have gone on for quite a long time.

    Heady stuff. Even living in San Francisco and playing in the underground music scene, I wasn't used to women being that matter-of-fact.

    And then when I went to see them, Emma was this tiny English librarian-looking girl! And they rocked so hard.

    I came away from that show swearing that I was going to start my own shoegaze/dream pop band, and I did. One of the most creatively fulfilling times of my life.
