The Sundays - Skin And Bones

I love the The Sundays. I consider seeing them play live here in Salt Lake City in 1990 as one of the best shows I've ever attended. There are strong atheist themes in several of their songs (so look to see more of them here in the future). I like that they only have ever released 3 albums and I consider all of them classics, but now that it has been thirteen years since the last one, I also wouldn't mind if they'd give us one more at some point.

I've included two videos below- the studio version of the song and a live version. I like to include live versions of songs and if there's a suitable one available, I will generally use it over the studio version, but this live version is a bit substandard.










Skin And Bones
by The Sundays

You know, and I've been wondering
You know, all the way home
Whether the world will see I'm a better man
Than others by far.

You know, I've had it so good
How loathsome, and not quite my style
Work and vanity wasted my time inside
Oh, you see me in a cardigan
And a dress, dress, dress that I've been sick on
Oh, how are you?
Can't say I really care at the end of it all,

Actually, oh, well there's something I've found
It's that we're just flesh and blood
And well, now, just one thing I've found
It's that we're just flesh and blood.

And you know, and I've been wondering
You know, all the way home
Whether the world will see I'm a better man
Than others by far
Oh, how are you?
I shan't say I really care at the end of it all

Actually oh, there is something I've found
It's that we're just flesh and blood
Well, now, there's one thing I've found
It's that we're just skin and bones

Actually oh, there's something I've found
It's that we're just flesh and blood
And you're nothing much more
There's something, just something I've found
It's that we're just flesh and blood
And we're nothing much more

Oh no, what did I do wrong?
Individual doubts
Just one thing I've found
We're just flesh and blood
Nothing much more
Something, just something I've found
That we're skin and bones

  1. First of all this is a really cool song and it makes me want to check out the band.
    Secondly there are 2 songs I think you should look at: Opiate- Tool and Shallow be Thy Game- Red Hot Chili Peppers.

    I'm sorry for the add-on recommendations, I was unsure of where else to place it. Anyways I enjoy this blog quite a bit.
