In every dream home a heartache

The trauma of my visit to Madame Tussaud's continues to linger, and brings to mind Roxy Music's finest hour - their sinister and hypnotic love song to a blow-up doll.

Your skin is like vinyl
The perfect companion
You float my new pool
De luxe and delightful

Is there a more striking image in popular music?

I hadn't heard that song before. It's not on their greatist hits CD.

I always thought Bryan Ferry would make a great James Bond.

BTW I saw "Hot Fuzz" last night. It was hilarious, as you said.

It's from the album 'For Your Pleasure' which also includes the great Beauty Queen
