That Handsome Devil, "Twist the Knife" via iTunes (from The Heart Goes to Heaven, the Head Goes to Hell) (The Last Angry Man)
Commentary: A darkly comedic ballad of love gone murderously wrong, akin to Spike Jones's "My Old Flame" which is replete with a Peter Lorre impersonation (a Hallowe'en R.D.B.S.O.T.D. in 2012). I was introduced to "Twist the Knife" by Jojo, my long lost pal whom I saw, briefly, over the summer, only for her to disappear again into the jealously possessive (one suspects though hopes not abusive) clutches of another unworthy, scumbag boyflesh. Happy Hallowe'en, ladies & ghouls!
"I see that look in your eyes and I hide the crooked knives.
The arsenic made me nauseous, but I love a good surprise.
It's 'til death do up part, I wouldn't lie, my pudding pie,
But I could speed that process up, now couldn't I?
"Get love and hate confused, can't separate the two,
O my love, how I've hated you!
"I say it's over (It's over!)
This time we're through (We're through!)
But I go crazy when I'm not with you.
They call me lonely (You're lonely!)
They say I'm blue (Boo hoo hoo hoo!)
But I go crazy when I'm not with you."
