bilby commented on the word exquisite corpse
Something Nick Cave sang.
No, I was thinking of this song:
Follow her down to worship some god
Who never speaks to me, I wonder if that's odd
Then he says 'you're never listening'
The pursuit of adulation is your butter and your bread
It's an exquisite corpse and its lips are red
And its teeth are glistening ...
- The Church, 'Lost'.

Great song on a great album by a great band.
Corrrect, yarb. 'Starfish' is a masterpiece.
