Siouxsie & The Banshees : Swimming Horses


 

Falling in your, falling in your arms
Fish on a line, learns to live on dry land
Thrown back again to drown
Kinder with poison
Than pushed down a well – or a face burnt to hell
Feel the cruel stones breaking her bones
Dead before born
Words fall in ruins – but no sound
She’s dying of your shame – she maimed by your paw
He gives birth to swimming horses
Fish on a line, walking on dry land
But, back in the water to drown we drown
Floating in sky
He gives birth to swimming horses
Take a
He gives birth to swimming horses
Take a ride on the tide with the assassin at your side
The weightlessness under water — forgets in slow motion
And washes pointless tortures
He gives birth to swimming horses
Floating in sky like fishes can fly through your arms

Spellbound The Collection Lyrics Siouxsie And The Banshees

In a 1992 interview with Melody Maker, Siouxsie Sioux explained the meaning behind the song:

“This is based on a programme I saw about a female version of Amnesty, called ‘Les Sentinelles’. They rescue women who are trapped in certain religious climates in the Middle East, religions that view any kind of pre-marital sexual aspersion as punishable by death – either by the hand of the eldest brother in the family, or by public stoning. And there was this instance of a woman whose daughter had developed a tumour, and, of course, gossip abounded that she was pregnant. The doctor who removed the tumour allowed her to take it back to the village to prove that, no, it wasn’t a baby – but they wouldn’t believe her. The woman knew her daughter would have to be stoned to death so she poisoned her, out of kindness, to save her from a worse fate. Now this organisation has all these escape routes for women like her, mainly through the elder brother who pretends to have killed them. But once they’ve been saved, they can never go back. So the song starts, “Kinder than with poison…” I also used the imagery of “He gives birth to swimming horses”, from the fact that male sea horses give birth to the children, so they’re the only species that have a maternal feel for the young. It was, I suppose, an abstract way of linking it all together without being sensationalist. I remember just being really moved by that programme, and wanting to get the sorrow out of me.”

Saudi woman ‘barred from marrying man who played musical instrument’

12News Online, October 2, 2018 (thanks to Lookmann):

A Saudi woman has reportedly lost a legal battle to marry the man of her choice after her family objected because he played a musical instrument.

Relatives of the woman, a bank manager, refused to allow her to wed the man, a teacher, saying his oud (lute) playing made them “religiously incompatible”.

A lower court backed that view, and its verdict has now been confirmed at appeal, a lawyer and local media say.

Some people in the conservative Muslim state say music is “haram” (forbidden).

Despite that, Saudi Arabia has a distinctive musical tradition – in which the oud features – and public concerts by Arab and Western artists are permitted.

The case of the bank manager and teacher came to light over the weekend, when Saudi lawyer Abdul Rahman al-Lahim discussed it in a video on Snapchat.

He said a woman from Unaiza, in the Qassim region, had asked him two years ago to file a lawsuit against her brothers because they had refused to give their permission for her to marry a man who “once played the oud and so was not considered religious”.

A court in Qassim had ruled in favour of the woman’s family, he added. The newspaper Okaz cited the judge as saying: “Because the suitor plays a musical instrument he is unsuitable for the woman from a religious point of view.”

An appeals court recently upheld the verdict, making it final.

Mr Lahim said the man had not been given the chance to defend himself before a court, and that the judgements “established serious principles”.

The woman told Okaz that she was still determined to marry the man, who she described as “very pious and with a good reputation”.

She will ask the country’s “highest authorities” – an apparent reference to the royal court – to intervene.

Mr Lahim’s video sparked a fierce debate among Saudis on social media, with some people condemning the authorities for stopping a couple wanting to get married but failing to prevent forced marriages in the kingdom.

Under Saudi Arabia’s guardianship system, adult women must obtain permission from a male guardian – usually a husband, father, brother, or son – to apply for a passport, travel outside the country, study abroad on a government scholarship, get married or even leave prison.

Since May, several women’s rights activists campaigning for the guardianship system to be abolished have been detained as part of an apparent crackdown on dissent.

Hooverphonic – Mad About You


 

Hooverphonic is a Belgian band that formed in October 1995. Though early on categorized as a trip hop group, they quickly expanded their sound to the point where they could no longer be described as a lone genre, but rather encompass alternative, electronica, electropop, rock, and mixture of others. The band originally called themselves Hoover, but later changed their name to Hooverphonic after discovering other groups were already using the Hoover name and to avoid any legal issues with the vacuum cleaner company.
