one good reason...

THE place for your Sisters-related comments, questions and snippets of Sisters information. For those who do not know, The Sisters of Mercy are a rock'n'roll band. And a pop band. And an industrial groove machine. Or so they say. They make records. Lots of records, apparently. But not in your galaxy. They play concerts. Lots of concerts, actually. But you still cannot see them. So what's it all about, Alfie? This is one of the few tightly-moderated forums on Heartland, so please keep on-topic. All off-topic posts will either be moved or deleted. Chairman Bux is the editor and the editor's decision is final. Danke.

...why Eldritch had severe cause to doubt his record labels commitment to promoting the sisters (amongst many others i'm sure):

click on http://www.vh1.com/artists/az/sisters_o ... deos.jhtml and have a look at the "walk away" video. :roll:

Is it just me that starts singing a Jason Donovan song every time I see this thread title?

The video won't work for me for some reason and although I must have seen it I can't remember it.
There were an awful lot of dire videos in those days though, was it that much worse than everything else around?

---- I never saw the UTG video, but this song, of all Andy's lyrics, lays it on the line with the barefaced question "Are you living for love?" as he snarls his indignation at war-mongers.

I totally respect Andy for UTG perhaps more than anything else he did, even though it isn't my fave SOM song.

It's like, if you were a songwriter and you were given a chance to say something in a song (something that would be heard by a LOT of people) what would you choose to say? Andy snarled at the warmongers. :notworthy:

Even though half of the lyrics, and the music too, was "lifted" from Two Worlds Apart. -_-
