...so I'm not the only person in Ontario who likes to lament, "well, when I was young, there was this *awesome* station in Toronto that played 'alternative' music before it was called alternative..."
Anyway, I've scrounged the top-whatever lists here in search of a song I've loved for many years, but could not find. Maybe someone here remembers it. CFNY played it around 90-91, I think. I'm 99% sure it was called "Strange Attraction" by a band called I.C.E, or something like that. Of course, when I try to search it anywhere else, all I get is the Cure song of the same title. The lyrics were something like:
We should be together for the voices in my head are calling witches in the weather, and the body on the shore;
We should be together, although nothing lasts forever, I will be the phantom throwing shadows on your door...
It had a drum beat similar to - and was even in the same key as Sinead O'Connor's "Stretched on Your Grave."
Ring any bells? Am I nuts?
