Hi Folks,

Being the great music lover that I am from right across the board, I wanted to share this track with you.

For those of you who are not familiar with the band, The Divine Comedy, this is a track from their 2006 album, titled, Victory For The Comic Muse, the track is called Arthur C Clarke's Mysterious World.....

The song is basically about not understanding his girlfriend and blends the lyrics together with many topics/subjects that are covered here on ATS, about things that we discuss and what we try to understand...

This is a truly amazing album, written, arranged and produced by Neil Hannon, and was recorded at Abbey Road Studios......

If any other members have similar types of songs that they would like to share, then please do. I am always on the look out for new bands and tracks to listen to........

I have also added the lyrics which you can follow when listening to the song....

I hope you enjoy it............


Do you remember that old TV show?
'Arthur C. Clarke's Mysterious World'
Well, if ITV make a new series
They ought to come take a look at my girl

I don't understand her
She doesn't make any sense to me
I don't understand her
It's like she's speaking in Swahili

Do you remember that girl in the early eighties
Allergic to everything?
Everywhere that she went in her plastic tent
The doctors tried but they couldn't begin

To even understand her
And it's exactly the same for me
I don't understand her
She is as deep as the Baltic Sea

Well, it's no big deal, I'm not complaining
Sometimes things don't need explaining
She's my angel, that's the main thing
And that is never changing

She's a mass of contradictions
A pick and mix of strange convictions
It can be a source of friction
But there are worse afflictions
Love doesn't make distinctions

Now to make matters worse she claims
The universe is expanding like a balloon
But, baby, if it's meant to be infinite
Then where is it expanding to?

I don't understand you
You just don't make any sense to me
I don't understand you
You are completely logic free

I don't understand her, no, no
She is uncharted territory
I don't understand her
But she's as lovely as she can be
