"Loomer" as written by Bilinda Butcher and Kevin Shields....
Tiptoe down
To the holy places
Where you going now
Don't turn around

Little girls
In their party dresses
Didn't like
Anything there

Pretty boys
With their sunshine faces
Carrying their
Heads down

Tiptoe down
To the lonely places
Where you going now
Don't turn around

    General CommentMy favorite track off of the album. This surely is not about sex, you think it's about that because this is on your mind, not in the lyrics.
    This is about infancy, about having a secret hideout, a place that only you know.
    The boys carry their head down thinking, imagining things, they are pure, happy and peaceful.
    The girls who don't like 'anything there' make me think it is relative to some sort of a boys hideout, a child gang!

    General CommentThis song reminds me of childhood more than anything, being young and innocent.

    General Commentpsychocandy doesn't really strike me as being typically shoegaze, but i think a lot of people would've listened to psychocandy before loveless - seeing how the mary chain started it all as rubyoverdiamonds has mentioned.

    at least in my case i heard of the chain before MBV. =)

    General CommentGreat song from the classic 'Loveless' album. If you like these guys, check out 'Psychocandy' by Jesus & The Mary Chain. They did all this BEFORE My Bloody Valentine. Whether they did it better or not is debatable.

    General Commentalthough both JAMC and MBV came out of the post-punk movement, JAMC didn't start it 'all', if by 'all' you mean shoegaze. that was actually MBV, JAMC never had a shoegazing sound

    General CommentI thought that you're just supposed to listen to these songs and think about love and floating. So that's what i got out of anything. Maybe it's about being little, i dunno. these guys are awesome
