It was very hard finding new and good songs this week. So i thought it'd be great to put a classic single of The Cure .

Killing An Arab
Apparently based on Albert’s The Outsider and, if so, quite possibly the straw that broke
Camus’ back. Cymbals crash once, twice, three times. A guitar, full of eerie promises, slithering like the sprog of some belly-dancer and a poisonous reptile. Compact bass guitar motif, descending alone. Then those vocals – taut, terse, tense intonation, a voice like that feeling you get watching the faces on the workaday tube ride after stepping out at dawn for the third
time without sleep. “Standing on the beach/With a gun in my hand/Staring at the sea/Staring at the sand/Staring down the barrel at the Arab on the ground/Can see his open mouth/ But I hear no sound/I’m alive/I’m dead/I’m the stranger/ Killing an Arab”. And racism has got nothing to do with it.

I believe that "Likking An Arab" is based on the book "The Stranger".

It's The Stranger by Camus
(pronounced Cah-moo).
Jesus! If people stopped blogging so much and picked up a book once in a while, the world would be a better place.
