"Let me get my hands on your mammary glands"

Given my musical tastes and the sort of person I am, I knew it was only a matter of time before I'd break down and record a cover of a Smiths song which would cast tenuous suspicions on my sexuality and eventually come back to ruin my political career or something.

On Wednesday I was introduced to the song Handsome Devil, and fell so inexplicably in love with it that I put together a quick and dirty cover before offBeat practiced last night. Then this morning I listened to it again a couple of times and decided that it sounds much better than I'd originally thought. I can't explain my fondness for the original song, but it's really doing it for me right now, and I'm very happy with my cover, so here it is:

Handsome Devil 3.99 mb

Get it now before I become embarrassed, freak out, and take it down. Here (in case you're interested) are the lyrics:
Oh, all the streets are crammed with things
eager to be held,
and I know what hands are for
and I'd like to help myself.
You ask the time,
but I sense something more
and I would like to give you
what I think you're asking for.
Oh, you handsome devil.
Oh, you handsome devil.

Oh, let me get my hands
on your mammary glands,
and let me lay your head
on the conjugal bed.
I say, I say, I say...

I crack the whip and you skip,
but you deserve it.
You deserve it, deserve it, deserve it.
A boy in the bush is worth two in the hand.
I think I can help you get through your exams,
oh, you handsome devil.

Oh, let me get my hands
on your mammary glands,
and let me lay your head
on the conjugal bed.
I say, I say, I say...

I crack the whip and you skip,
but you deserve it.
You deserve it, deserve it, deserve it.
And when we're in your scholarly room,
who will swallow whom?
And when we're in your scholarly room,
who will swallow whom?
Oh, you handsome devil.

Oh, let me get my hands
on your mammary glands,
and let me get your head
on the conjugal bed.
I say, I say, I say...

There's more to life than books, you know,
but not much more.
Oh, there's more to life than just books, you know,
but not much more, not much more.
Oh, you handsome devil.
Oh, you handsome devil.


And incidentally, since I haven't plugged them yet, January's MP3s of the Month have been up for like, almost two weeks. There are two, and they are covers of background music which only appeared on the LP version of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
