It Was Always Mesh and Lace

Wednesday, July 9th, 2008 • 3 Comments on It Was Always Mesh and Lace


Moving forward using all my breath
Making love to you was never second best
I saw the world thrashing all around your face
Never really knowing it was always mesh and lace
I’ll stop the world and melt with you
You’ve seen the difference and
It’s getting better all the time
There’s nothing you and I won’t do
I’ll stop the world and melt with you

The incomparable Alison Tyler is sending me a copy of her new book, the back-to-the-80s erotic novel Melt With You.  I love the 80s (and I loved them way before VH-1 ever did) and I love the song by Modern English, so I know I’ll love Alison’s homage to the era.  Pop over to Alison’s website—she’s giving away more goodies over the next 30 days.  She really is the cat’s pajamas like that.

Here’s “I Melt With You” by Modern English, courtesy of YouTube (no video, though):

Oh, the good old days of new wave bands!  I saw Modern English and The Fixx at a free concert on Fort Lauderdale beach back in the summer of… sheesh, 1983?  1984?  Something like that.  And I definitely owned my share of mesh and lace…

I love the 80’s.  I love Alison Tyler!
