Subway

I went to Newbury in Berkshire UK of all places to take this shot. It’s again a bleak setting with disturbing subject material.

I must have heard The Cure’s, Subway Song, over 35 years ago and it’s always one that’s haunted me. Being a man, I have no idea really what this feeling must be like. It is surely most female’s nightmare.

The walking rhythmic bassline, the haunting harmonica, Smith’s whispered vocal, and the pulsing high-hat drag you in to the frankly awful, blood curdling climax. Rarely does a song have such drama in such a short space of time. It lasts 1.54 minutes in total and it’s too long! I hate it but love it at the same time.

Don’t listen to it if you don’t know it….but you must!
