"Tesla Girls" as written by and Paul David Humphreys Andrew Mc Cluskey....
No
No no no
No no no

Tesla girls Tesla girls
Testing out theories
Electric chairs and dynamos
Dressed to kill they're killing me
But heaven knows their recipe

No no no
You wouldn't believe me if I said
The things I've seen went over my head
I've been patient heaven knows
I've learnt the rules and how it goes
I can't sit still or settle down
And when I walk I don't touch the ground
See those girls they're heaven blessed
I guess it's so they know best

Tesla girls Tesla girls
Writing in their diaries
Now and then they'll watch TV
Now and then they'll speak to me
But heaven knows their recipe

You wouldn't believe them if they said
The things they've seen went over their heads
They've been patient heaven knows
They seem to care and so it goes
They can't sit still or settle down
And when they walk they don't touch the ground
See those girls they're heaven blessed
I guess it's so they know best

Tesla girls
Tesla girls
Tesla girls
Tesla girls

Tesla girls Tesla girls
Testing out theories
Electric chairs and dynamos
Dressed to kill they're killing me
But heaven knows their recipe

Tesla girls Tesla girls
Now and then I watch TV
Now and then they'll speak to me
But heaven knows their recipe

No no no

    General CommentNikolai Tesla was a pioneer of electrical power. 'Tesla' in the song would seem to be an analogy for the intelligence and planning within these girls the narrator is in awe of. It could be seen as quite a feminist song, an ode to the intelligence of girls within a relationship, their ability to make the man become in awe of them.

    General CommentTesla was a genius. As are OMD. This song is all about women who think...who have something upstairs besides two breasts. It really is a great tribute to thinking women.

    I love Tesla Girls.

    Also, I think there's a hidden code in here that in fact is in favor of women who can decipher code. English just isn't English...nor any language is. English as a Second Language is what this song is about.

    Take for instance the line when they walk they don't touch the ground. It's all soulful to these girls. These guys are about a millennium ahead of their time on our current course for this planet.

    General CommentIt's also quite ironic, as Tesla was celibate.

    General CommentInterestingly the title was suggested by Martha Ladly, who also suggested the title of OMDs " Architecture & Morality".

    She also was one of the Marthas in Martha and the Muffins, and sang backing vocals for Roxy Music, performed on top of the pops with the Associates, worked with Robert Palmer, dated Peter Saville, and had one of her paintings on the cover of FACTUS 8, The Everythings Gone Green EP by New Order.

    She is currently an associate professor of design at the Ontario College of Art and Design.

    General CommentThe band said it was a parody because they were fed up with being told by their record company to have USA style videos of naked women dancing around, to break into the USA market.

    General CommentCould this be about Tesla's inventions ? His children ? His girls ? Such experiments that he conducted have resulted in radio, television... Now and then they will watch TV, now and then they will speak to me ? (radio)

    General CommentIt seems like this song is about your typical drama queen, high-maintenance girl that all men seem to fall for.
