“Way Of The Wolf” is the new single from that marvelous album that is “BMX Bandits Forever” and that lengthens the life of an album that should be eternal. Duglas and company continue to show their talents when it comes to playing all the styles of pop. From the clear Beatle-esque-ness of the title track (and for which you can enjoy the tremendous video, once again made by Chris Croft), to the disco-pop spirit of “You Justify My Life”, and the Wilson-esque touch of “Can’t Wait ‘Till I Get Home”.

It is precisely the two previously unreleased tracks that reconfirm to what extent Duglas pays attention to these formats that go beyond Long-Play, including songs that could perfectly be a part of the album. Even the emotional weight they carry fits. “You Justify My Life” is a song that Duglas wrote with David Scott for THE PEARLFISHERS and that was released on their album, “The Young Picnickers” (1999) and which the Scotsman now takes into the land of dance music with irony, emotion, and inspiration. “Can't Wait 'Till I Get Home” was co-written in equal parts by Duglas and his loyal squire Stuart Kidd.

As Duglas himself said:
"There's a tradition in pop music of songs about lovers who have been separated for some reason anticipating and looking forward to their reunion. They are about the hopes of how they imagine the reunion might be. The listener never finds out how things go so their is a sense of jeopardy. I am a fan of some classic songs in this sub genre and wanted BMX BANDITS to have a song like that. Our track (“Can't Wait 'Till I Get Home”) is also a homage to a particular year in The Beach Boys recording history 1967 when the smooth sonic sophistication of Pet Sounds had been left behind".

The thing is that listening to Duglas talk about his songs is a delicacy, in part because of his wide knowledge of pop music, but most of all because of learning about the great music lover and pop fan he is. Let’s keep on enjoying it.

Track Name: Way Of The Wolf (With Dr Cosmo's Tape Lab)
I feel I'm trapped alone in the woods
Don't know which way to go
You want to take my hand and show me the way
Help me find my road home

This has been a strange holiday
Not like the break that I planned
Seems like I got lost along the way
Won't someone understand?

You're a little girl lost
How did you find me?
I'll pay the cost
You must to set me free

I've been trying to hold up a light
But you keep closing your eyes
Please don't go away with the wolf
Or fall for his cunning disguise

Well I have to walk my own path
There's no one to blame but me
Open your eyes and reach out your hand
You're safer with me you see

I don't know which way to go
I don't know which way to go

I think I'll go the way of the wolf uh-hu
I think I'll choose the way of the wolf
I think I'll go the way of the wolf uh-hu
I think I'll choose the way of the wolf
Track Name: Can't Wait 'Till I Get Home
I'm missing my baby, I've been away
I want to be kissing her now
It hurts inside to have to wait

I've such a hunger and longing for her love
I can't wait 'til I get home
And we can feast on our love, on our love

And I'm getting hungry, I'm getting hungry girl
I'm getting hungry, love's getting hungry
Love's getting hungry girl, getting hungry girl
Getting hungry, I'm getting hungry

I hope she's been missing me as much as I miss her
I hope one else has been kissing her
It sure would break my heart to lose that girl

I'm getting hungry girl, getting hungry girl
Getting hungry, love's getting hungry
I'm so hungry for love, getting hungry for love
Getting hungry, I'm so hungry

And I pray that she's been missing me
Yeah I hope she's hungry just for me
I, I really hope that she's been missing me
Yeah I hope she's hungry just for me

I'm so hungry for my baby
Track Name: You Justify My Life
When we met I'd already died
Or was living as a zombie
Then you came and kissed me alive
I was growing straight and true
And if there's a God above
Then I know you'll understand
When I say he put me here for you

And making love is the way that we've learned
Bout each other
It's the way part of you can become part of me
Part of living, feeling free
All my past sins you forgave
Wanna thank you from the heart
For this wandering soul you've saved

You justify my life
And if you've got to leave then I'll understand
But I hope you can just pretend
That you really want to see me one more time
Really want to see me one more time

I was growing straight and true
And if there's a God above
Then I know you'll understand
When I say he put me here for you

You justify my life
And if you've got to leave then I'll understand
But I hope you can just pretend
That you really want to see me one more time
Really want to see me one more time

Really wanna see you
I'll come and worship every day
Really wanna see you
You're the light thats shown me the way

That you really want to see me one more time
Really want to see me one more time
Really want to see me one more
Really want to see
