X-Ray Spex – Let’s Submerge

That Music Mondays thing just isn’t working out for me, for fairly obvious ADHD related reasons. So, I have started my own thing where basically I try to post a song each week on whichever day I get round to it.

Browsing social media one night when I should have been asleep I saw a reference to a band called X-Ray Spex. I had vaguely heard of them but had no idea about their music. A quick bit of Googling and…. wow. Mind blown. X-Ray Spex and their wonderful lead singer Poly Styrene have been a mainstay of my playlist ever since. Even my kids like them. I honestly don’t think any music collection is complete without them.

Lyrics from genius.com

[Chorus]
It’s dark and eerie
And it’s really late
Come on kids don’t hesitate
We’re going down to the underground
We’re going down, we’re going down
To the underground

[Verse 1]
The hades ladies are dressed to kill
Dagger glares from Richard Hell

Tension heightening heating frightening
Thunder rolls as fast as lightening

If you’ve got the urge
Come on, let’s submerge

[Chorus]
It’s dark and eerie
And it’s really late
Come on kids don’t hesitate
We’re going down to the underground
We’re going down, we’re going down
To the underground

We’re going down
To the underground

It’s dark and eerie
And it’s really late
Come on kids don’t hesitate
We’re going down to the underground
We’re going down, we’re going down
To the underground

[Verse 2]
The subterranean is a bottomless pit
The vinyl vultures are after it
Moulten lava, sulphur vapours
Smoulder on to obligerate us

If you’ve got the urge
Come on, let’s submerge

[Chorus]
It’s dark and eerie
And it’s really late
Come on kids don’t hesitate
We’re going down to the underground
We’re going down, we’re going down
To the underground

We’re going down, we’re going down
To the underground
Down, we’re going down
To the underground
