Blackboard Sky by Wall of Voodoo

Song: Blackboard SkyArtist: Wall of VoodooAlbum: Seven Days in SammystownLyrics:Their frying fish in Chinatown And the wind smells of rain My head is ticking like a bomb On a subway train Now I cut to the on high And I get opened up like venetian blinds When I draw your face on blackboard sky Yeah I draw your face on blackboard sky The worst is over humm a hymn To her burning my faith For such a villian I am criminally underpaid Now my rope is tied The gas is on The chair is begging to be climbed When I draw your face on blackboard sky Yeah I draw your face on blackboard sky And if I look in your eye And see you yes And if I see you say yes We'll be happy once again Fresh out of hell on a morning so cold and alone Nobody there to say welcome home So I roll like the leaves I blow like the sand And I tumble like a paper cup Thats caught in the wind Now I see all sides Sense is not issue I've got the eyes of the blind When I draw your face on blackboard sky Yeah I draw your face on blackboard sky

Triumphant Aussie Rawk, tanscending so many 1980 artistes, yet here we are listening to this and the Church and still I feel like a paper slip caught in the wind....

awesome track from probably the band's best album (Call of the west runs it close) . Saw them live loads of times in the 1980's and was lucky enough to meet most of the band members. rip chas, marc. Greatest band I have ever seen 
Verry underrated song.
Cant stop the dance
I'll admit it took me some time to warm up to this version of Wall of Voodoo but I like it ok now. While I think the lyrics are still clever and well written, they definitely take a turn from that wry sardonic wit of Stan's into a more angsty and hard to relate to feel. Kinda feels like a teenagers \

This came with a cool video. Thought I saw that somewhere on YT a few yrs ago...
Where did you find this track? Despite having the disc, I know where to find a better sounding copy than this.
One of those songs that grows on you, particularly the middle (\

Best song of the Prieboy era.
I somehow missed this song in the 80's. It is awesome!
I bought this album after hearing this song over the PA at Tower Records back in '85. Great memories!
Why does this remind me of \
Awesome song! Thanks for posting. I have the LP but I can't find the CD.

Great album, cool cut, \r\nthanks Mrdamadgeinc!!
I absolutely ADORED this song a zillion years ago and I still do - the vocals & the lyrics the whole ethereal beauty of it - it could've been a cut on Magical Mystery Tour - tho the synths are a bit much - so what - it was the 8o's!! This is still a great song weird techno auto drum aside - love it - love it!!! Great IMAGERY HERE!
