Alex Descends into hell for a bottle of milk

I pulled out my fly single and popped it in and I completely forgot about this song the guitar in the opening mixed with the children singing in the bg its a really awesome song the only down part is it never had any vocals any idea why ? It seems like a unfinished masterpeice?

The song was part of a musical score (for the theatre play of A Clockwork Orange). Hence the title and probably the fact that the song has almost no vocals.

C ya!

The only down part of the song is when it's over. It would be a great opening track to be played before U2 hit the stage.

Oh yeah, I was listening to this earlier. It's nice, it would make a perfect intro track!

This thread made me have to break out my 'The Fly' single. This song IS great. Very cool stuff, I totally dig it.

One of U2's best b-sides. I love it. Haunting, quality stuff!
"Mediocrity is never so dangerous as when it is dressed up as sincerity." - Søren Kierkegaard

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

I believe another version of this song called Karova 1 or something was on the soundtrack for Johnny Mnuemonic that movie starring Keanu Reeves and Henry "I hate U2" Rollins.
