Appeal to the Hivemind; does anyone have a transcription of the lyrics to 'Hammer' by Zoë? I have managed to find a copy of the song, after years of searching, but I can't make out all the words. The lyrics aren't available anywhere on the Web that I can find. Probably Zoë herself is responsible for this; it's a brilliant song but its content ended her career. I saw her performing it on a lunchtime BBC programme. The host was all smiles when he introduced her but at the end of the song his face was dead white and he stumbled over the link to the next item. She was never invited back and AFAIK that was her last TV performance.
I want to use it in 'Tabula Avatar', of course; it's already been mentioned, and Viconia has said that she wants to learn it. I'd like to be able to quote more than the first four lines and any help would be appreciated.
I've had some success in tracking down other things that I've been looking for; the first Kung Fu movie to make an impact in the West, 'King Boxer' starring Lo Lieh, was released on DVD for the first time this week and I bought it. I've loved that film for over 30 years but it's over twenty years since I last saw it. Also I found on YouTube the song that counts as 'our song' for me and the Wombat; 'Something Special', by Emerson, a group who never made it big and who used to play the rock clubs in the North-East of England. We saw them play at Mingles in Whitley Bay when we were dating. I used to own the record on vinyl but threw it away when I went over to CDs, a decision I later regretted, but now I have it once more.
I haven't been doing the rewrite of the TA chapter that I mentioned in my last post; I got sidetracked (as I do). I saw a fic at 'Twisting the Hellmouth' with a summary that goes: 'Back by demand, and also because I just love a happy ending. Continuing story of Dean, Faith and little John'. I misread it slightly - mentally capitalising one word - and I'm not a Supernatural viewer (hello, male here) and so 'Dean' means something completely different as far as I'm concerned. I decided to write a ficlet based on my interpretation of that summary; I'm halfway through and I should be posting it today or tomorrow. Any guesses as to where I'm going with it?
