Wall Of Voodoo - Lost Weekend


From the Devo 3d Show at the Beverly Theater in LA in 1983

 

Drivin' outta Vegas in their automobile
She was in the back seat while he was at the wheel
With the windows wide open
All the money from the store, they'd gambled away
He said "the best laid plans often go astray"
She took the page of a book and turned it down
She lit a cigarette, she didn't make a sound
"And I know, if we'd had just one more chance," he said
"I know, we'd finally hit the big one at last", she said
Chorus:
(Instead of) another lost weekend
Lost weekend
Another lost weekend
Lost weekend
"Pull over soon," she said, "it's no big deal,
You can take any exit that you happen to feel
Is the right one"
The right one
As she slowly blew her smoke out the rear wind vent
She thought back on all the letters she'd sent
For a contest to be on a quiz game show
"Maybe I shoulda stayed in school," he said
"Yeah, I know––start your own business cleanin' swimming pools," she said
Chorus repeat x2
She leaned over the front seat and twiddled with the radio dial
She looked out the window, saw a sign, and both of them began to smile
"There's a place we can stay at... it's up another mile."

 

이무래도 Leaving Las Vegas는 아메리칸 드림을 극적으로 드러내주는 모티브 중의 하나인가보다.

레이몬드 카버의 단편을 떠오르게 한다는 유튜브 유저의 말에 공감이 간다.
