about

"If looks could kill" es la tercera canción escogida como single del celebrado tercer elepé de CAMERA OBSCURA, del que podríamos estar extrayendo joyas de pop melódico desde la primera hasta la última canción. Junto a la canción titular, destinada a ser bailada en los mejores clubs de pop gracias a su imbatible ritmo Motown y su sonido prestado de Phil Spector, en el formato CD-single se incluyen dos nuevos temas previamente inéditos: "Hands up baby" (un dueto compuesto y cantado por Kenny con el contrapunto vocal de Tracyanne, grabado durante las mismas sesiones del álbum en Suecia, y que los presenta a ambos como trasuntos escoceses de Lee Hazlewood y Nancy Sinatra en un día nublado) y el recentísimo "Alaska", tema nuevo de envolvente sonido atmosférico y ambiente inspirado en FLEETWOOD MAC, grabado el último fin de semana de Octubre por Paul Savage (THE DELGADOS) en los estudios Chem 19 de Glasgow (donde han grabado entre otros Vashti Bunyan, TRASH CAN SINATRAS, Scout Niblett o TEENAGE FANCLUB).

As usual, the 7" is a limited edition vinyl release, and it features an exclusive, previously unreleased B-side: a cover version of Phil Spector and the PARIS SISTERS' eternal classic tune, "I love how you love me".

Track Name: If Looks Could Kill
Tell me where it all went wrong
Maybe I can make it better
Tell me where it all went wrong
Don’t you know that you really upset her?
When you act like a man who is cross with every woman he’s never had
If it’s true looks could kill and you will be the first to make me mad
Then you’ll have to go

Is this the kind of fate you could contemplate?
A breakdown at my very sight
I promise hidden words of tenderness in every single line that I write
Still you act like a man who is cross with every woman he’s never had
If it’s true looks could kill and you will be the first to make me mad
Then you’ll have to go
Maybe you’ll have to go

Is it true looks can kill?
Is it true looks can kill?
Is it true looks can kill?
Track Name: Hands Up Baby
I’ve been hanging round
Everywhere you go in town
Watching you forget me

I want to see you crack
I’m going to get you back
Put your hands up baby

You’re talking to me like I’m in your debt
You don’t remember things I can’t forget

Now you don’t look so well
Turn that gun back on yourself
And take a load off baby

I’ve had enough this time
Give me back my boots you swine
It’s your fault you hate me

I only hate you ‘cause I hate myself
It breaks my heart that I can’t wish you well

Now I could end this here
Die and take you with me dear
It could be so easy

I don’t care what you do
I’ll still be rid of you
Just make your mind up baby

I’ll turn around I’ll walk away from you
If I turn back I’ll be the death of you
Track Name: Alaska
I’m in love with the Hawthorn
Sure I like the Birch
I need a hand, a volunteer
Why does the Sycamore mean so much?

Do you dream of a cold Alaska?
Better wrap up warm tonight
All I know is we’re in a blue time
Where the land is snow drop white

You were such a pretty one
You had a kid
Did you have any idea of the damage you did

I’m in love with the Hawthorn
Sure I like the Birch
I need a hand, a volunteer
Why does the Sycamore mean so much?

Is this the day that loneliness takes a hold of me?
I’ve been stupid, unkind but I’m not too blind too see
Track Name: I Love How You Love Me
I love how your eyes close whenever you kiss me
And when I’m away from you I love how you miss me
I love the way you always treat me tenderly
But darling most of all I love how you love me

I love how your heart beats whenever I hold you
I love how you think of me without being told to
I love the way your touch is always heavenly
But darling most of all I love how you love me

I love how your eyes close whenever you kiss me
And when I’m away from you I love how you miss me
I love the way your touch is always heavenly
But darling most of all I love how you love me
I love how you hug me
I love how you squeeze me, please me, tease me love how you love me
I love how you love me
