background
"As I look back, and as I look on the major influences of our band, I note that not only were the acts, or the artists involved, make great, great records but usually they were great live bands. Again, as we speak, there is a great live band playing called Roxy Music."

"Roxy Music were probably the predominant influence on Simple Minds in terms of the sound of the guitars and the synthesisers, melodies etc."

"We've chosen, I think, a more obscure Roxy song, albeit was the title of one of their albums. This song is called For Your Pleasure and, indeed, we had great pleasure in recording this song. We hope we do it justice." - Jim




lyrics
For your pleasure,
In our present state.
Part false, part true,
Like anything,
We present ourselves.
The words we use,
Tumble all over,
Your shoulder,
Gravel hard and loose.

There all night.
Lying.
With your dark horse.
Hiding.
Abhorring such extremes.

You're rubbing shoulders,
With the stars.
At night shining so bright,
Getting older.

But you'll wake up,
Soon and fight,
In the morning.
Things you worried about,
Last night,
Will seem lighter.

I hope things,
Will turn out right.
Old man-
Through every step a change.
You watch me walk away,
Tara tara ...
