Side 1, Track 9:
Total Run Time: 36:00
Lloyd Cole and the Commotions: Lost Weekend: 3 Minutes 14 Seconds: 1985
‘Lost Weekend’ from the album ‘Easy Pieces’ is probably my favourite track of theirs. As a single it only reached 17 in the UK charts, I thought it deserved better. I discovered today that I had two copies of the album and might give one away free soon. Might as well really. ‘Perfect Skin’ is a good track too but I really like the lyrics of ‘Lost Weekend’, I was a king bee with a head full of attitude/ An ashtray heart on my sleeve, wounded knees/ And my one love song was a tattoo upon my palm/You wrote upon me when you took my hand.
and, of course: It took a lost weekend in a hotel in Amsterdam/ And double pneumonia in a single room/ And the sickest joke was the price of the medicine/
Are you laughing at me now?
