Thanks to Louise

Gothiness: 5,000 Sweatiness: 9 (under the collar)
Louise "may or may not be loosely associated with this video" Don't be coy, Louise - it's an association you should scream from the highest rooftops! There are just too many great comments to make on this vid, from the shots on a handy cam of Didi-Goths pretending to cut each other's heads off in Richmond Park to what I suspect is a chorus sung by Neil Tennant. My mind is still boggling. I give you a short selection of possibly the greatest lyrics in Rawk history:

Catch the ghost train to the centre of my heart
I am potent, I'm profound
I am gothic
I am pale
I am scary
I'm insane
I'm a loner
I am cold
I feel special when people don't phone

Spray are my new favourite band!

I was a goth for most of my life (I'm 40 on next birthday), still listen to some of the older stuff, still dye my hair, still dress in all black - big boots and all. Oddly enough, people still call me a goth! ;-) Hmm...

I love this tune, it's gothic cheese on a stick! And if you know goths, you'll know they like nothing better.

THere was a song by (I think!) Marius Muller Westerhagen called 'Dicke' (lit. German for 'Fatty')
When it was played in German clubs and bars all the fat peoiple got up and danced.
I suspect that this wonderful songwould achieve the same effect in any otherwise doom-laden dance hall.

< aside > As a practising goth in earlier times I always used to request "Where are you Baby" by Betty Boo towards the end of the night - for some reason this went down a storm as well.< /aside >
