Eye Dandy

Here, I bought the Divine Comedy’s new album the other day, and it’s probably his best one since Casanova. In fact, it might be even better than Casanova, but it’ll need another couple of hundred listens to compare.

You really have to wonder what was going through the man’s head when he recorded Regeneration (if that was indeed his last album – I lost interest after that).

In Mother Dear, Mr Hannon muses on the influence of his mother’s gaze:

‘If I ever get arrested by the CIA
Because they take me for a foreign spy
They won’t need no lie detector
All they’ll have to do
Is make me look into my mother’s eyes
And I’ll tell them any think they like..’

This reminded me of this piece of research here:

In a finding that will have office managers everywhere scurrying for the
photocopier, researchers have discovered that merely a picture of watching eyes
nearly trebled the amount of money put in the box.

Incidentally, my mother reads this weblog. For this reason, it is free of foul language.
