"Paradise Place" as written by and Steven Severin Susan Ballion....
Look to the hills, now look at my face
Do you notice my eyes, are they in the right place?

There's a Mantovani backdrop to pucker up a tummy tuck
A voice soft as lint mashed up with shades of pink

Hide your genetics under drastic cosmetics
But this chameleon magic is renowned to be tragic

Look to the hills now look at my face
Do you notice my eyes are they in the right place?

    General CommentThis song was written in response to an article suggesting that Siouxsie had breast implants.
    "Look to the hills- now look at my face" An obvious reference about looking at a woman's breasts before her eyes.
    And about plastic surgery in general.

    General CommentActually, this song was written long before the article about the breast implants. It was because of this song that she could sue the author, because their article made her look like a hypocrite.

    General CommentYeah, I had always assumed that the song was anti-cosmetic surgery...

    General CommentI know that Dr.Polidori in his diary told about Lord Byron who, looking at Mary Shelley, imagined a woman with eyes instead of nipples, a vision that horrified the poet.
    Maybe the line "Do you notice my eyes are they in the right place?" could allude to this anecdote.

    Song MeaningSIOUXSIE: "There's one song that I've recently done called 'Paradise Place' which is about plastic surgeons in the Beverley Hills, that operate a a cut price (slice), very cheap, and they end up messing up someone's features at the cost of how cheap it is." Source: Zigzag 05/80.

    Is it just me or are Siouxsie and The Banshees more relevent today than ever?
