All By Myself
« on: November 05, 2011, 07:10:32 AM »
Since I have the forum all to myself, I'm going to cherish this moment of solitude and sing a quiet song to myself.

This song has haunted me since it first came out in the 1990. I didn't know until very recently it was about a woman dying from AIDS. If you want to watch it you can see the original video here:

GROWLER

Tomorrow Wendy by Andy Prieboy
It is complete now the two ends of time are neatly tied.
A one-way street, she's walking to the end of the line.
And there she meets the faces she keeps in her heart and mind.

They say 'good bye' Tomorrow, Wendy, you're going to die.
They say 'good bye' Tomorrow, Wendy, you're going to die.

Underneath the chilly gray November sky
We can make believe that Kennedy is still alive and
We're shooting for the moon and smiling Jackie's driving by and

They say 'good try'
Tomorrow Wendy's going to die.
Tomorrow Wendy's going to die.

I told the priest, don't count on any second coming.
God got his ass kicked the first time he came down here slumming.
He had the balls to come, the gall to die and then forgive us.
No, I don't wonder why, I wonder what he thought it would get us.
Hey, hey, good bye.
Tomorrow Wendy's going to die.

Hey, hey, good bye.
Tomorrow Wendy's going to die.
Tomorrow Wendy's going to die.

Hey, hey, good bye.
Tomorrow Wendy's going to die.
Tomorrow Wendy's going to die.

Only God says jump,
So I set the time
'Cause if he ever saw her
It was through these eyes of mine!
And if he ever suffered it was me who did his crying.

Hey hey, good bye.
Tomorrow Wendy's going to die
(Tomorrow Wendy's going to die)
Tomorrow Wendy's going to die
(Tomorrow Wendy's going to die)
Tomorrow Wendy's going to die

Hey, hey, good bye
Tomorrow Wendy's going to die

Hey, hey, good bye
Tomorrow Wendy's going to die
Tomorrow Wendy's going to die
Tomorrow Wendy's going to die

I know this song from Concrete Blonde, whose lead singer Johnette Napolitano is in Andy Prieboy's video. She described in concerts that this was a song about a woman who died of AIDS. It's a moving song.

You're right. This song lead to my discovering Concrete Blonde and thus began a lifelong love affair.

I understand after recording Tomorrow Wendy with Andy Prieboy, Johnette Napolitano rerecorded it for the Concrete Blonde album Bloodletting and released it before Andy's version.
