Just heard a snippet on Stu Maconie's show. There were some lines about indicating to turn in front of a tram, and seeing a girl in a helmet. Very odd. Thought it might be of interest to our tram correspondents.

(Tune was OK - teensy bit HMHB, for want of a better comparison.)

I've remembered another, the first line of the Magnetic Fields' The Luckiest Guy on the Lower East Side:

I'm not quite clear from the lyrics, but might that be something to do with a bike rider?

Bike - Pink Floyd

I've got a bike, you can ride it if you like
It's got a basket, a bell that rings and things to make it look good
I'd give it to you if I could but I borrowed it

No prizes for guessing that it's a Syd Barrett lyric.

I was listening to this the other day for the first time in ages and it suddenly occured to me that I don't understand whether Syd is saying he doesn't know why the mouse hasn't got a house or he doesn't know why he calls him Gerald. Which is it?
Those wonderful norks are never far from my thoughts, oh yeah!
