- It's lovely, uncomplicated X today. Aaagh!
- Lyric snippets below
Yes, I know the X is in the middle but... *sigh* it's been a long month! Sting is said to have written this song when the band were staying in a seedy Paris Hotel where prostitutes were 'walking the streets'.
Those days are over
You don't have to sell your body to the night...'
It's a sad truth that there is a lot of prostitution in most UK cities. I suspect it's the same the world over. To me it seems wrong in every way.
Do you agree that while men are paying for sex we'll never have full emancipation for women?
The lyrics to this song from the film of the same name are decidedly moons and Junes so I thought I'd just say that Xanadu, the Kubla Khan's summer palace, is mentioned in Coleridge's poem, Kubla Kahn and it's given a surreal, almost Garden of Eden, or paradise quality.
There's no way I missed an X song, is there? This was a really difficult letter!
