I freely admit much furious nodding to Electrelane's "The Power Out" these past few weeks - particularly track 6, "Oh Sombra!" in which Verity I believe her name is squawks sexy in Spanish. I look here and am told she's singing a sonnet! by Spanish poet Juan Boscan(?). I look more and see the German lyrics I've wondered about are from a passage in Nietzsche's The Gay Science. Also, a letter from some dude Siegfried Sassoon.
