808 State featuring James Dean Bradfield - Lopez

With February seeing the 10th anniversary of the death of Richey Edwards this seemed like a good time to post this track. The lyrics, written by Nicky Wire, appear to refer directly to Edwards’ death with references to drowning.

However, I may have got this wrong. Wire himself claims the song is about golf. Make your own mind up.


Everything vanishes

Moonlight for my stars in the drift

Not shared through speech

Each sun feels like the last

Death is proclaimed at sunset

By a final light

Which darkness fills

With every shade

Solitude bides time

Joy gives me my last regret

Hole in one.

808 State – Lopez (Original).

Buy Lopez.

Nicky does that though, doesn't he? He's a bit cryptic.

You could interpret a LOT of post-Richey Manics as having some reference to him. Only some of it the band seem to admit, though.

Nice track. Keeping me sweet, eh?
