What do you think most about during the day?
Women. They are a complete mystery.So here is the excellent Neil Hannon, who trades as the Divine Comedy, on the same topic in “Arthur C. Clarke’s Mysterious World” from the album Victory for the Comic Muse. Sample lyrics:
Do you remember that old TV show
Arthur C. Clarke’s Mysterious World?Well if ITV make a new seriesThey ought to come take a look at my girl [. . .]She’s a mass of contradictionsA pick’n’mix of strange convictionsIt can be a source of frictionBut there are worse afflictionsLove doesn’t make distinctions.Now to make matters worse she claims the universeIs expanding like a balloonBut baby if it’s meant to be infiniteThen where is it expanding to?
A good question. The way Michael Moorcock tells it, Arthur C. Clarke found women a bit of a mystery too.
