I'd forgotten all about this song till My Dear Friend Nikki reminded me of it. Ferry's got one o' them voices that damn near puts me into a swoon, as does the very typical sound of the bass in his songs. I don't know what that effect is (or even if there is one), but it hits me in all the right places. (And in all the wrong ones, too.) A song about the betrayal of a former lover, it sets a dark (if suavely sexy) tone for today's A to Z Challenge letter.
Oh, Trent, boy do I EVER know your pain, man! I'm sure we've all been there (or close enough). That person that's captured your fancy is so enticing, so alluring, but also so pernicious to your well-being that every instinct screams against engaging in any type of relationship whatsoever. You know it's bad, bad, bad for you, you know it, YOU KNOW IT! But then you go ahead and engage anyway. Gah!
As I've mentioned before (and you may have noticed), I dig wolfie themes. Too, I enjoy the Little Red Riding Hood story and this song riffs on the idea of wolf as seducer. A predatory seducer, yes. No less arousing for all its menace, but still vewy, vewy scawy! AooROOO!
