Fridge says

The song is about a real fridge but the idea came from: I downloaded a 'fridge door' to add to my Myspace page on which you can write messages with 'magnetic' letters - it took me a while to realise I was sharing this fridge with someone else.

Story behind the song
From the album 'The sentence that I serve'. Click here for link: album cover I downloaded a 'fridge door' to add to my Myspace page on which you can write messages with 'magnetic' letters. I received all sorts of cryptic messages - it took me a while to realise I was sharing this fridge with someone else who had the same user name. Anyway, the idea of messages on a fridge gave me the idea for this song. There are two acoustic guitars on it plus vocal and backing vocals; the rest is sequenced: sweep-filtered hammond organ, filtered choir, piano, Rhodes, strings, and Moog bass. I did some filtering of the whole mix too, and, though it's a bit over done these days, I think it suits the mood.
Lyrics
Verse 1 I spell out 'I dont want you' In letters bright and bold; It's to the point, uncomplicated, 'Cos I don't want to confuse you. When you left, I found a way To remind me how I feel each day. Chorus But I go out, I come back, Fridge says 'I want you'. If I go out, when I come back Fridge says 'I want you'. Verse 2 I cook up 'I dont need you' A sentence that I serve Cold, from the heart, and variegated, 'Cos I don't want to confuse you. The message is upbeat, at least to me - The only sad thing's the missing apostrophe. Chorus But I go out, I come back, Fridge says 'I need you'. If I go out, when I come back Fridge says 'I need you'. Middle 8 It was here when we first called this home; We'd stick our pictures, write notes upon it's Here though you're gone. Your photograph pulls out its tongue once more, Once more I turn your face to the door - I write some more: Verse 3 'I despise you', Hey fridge! Take the 'dont' from that; Now my heart is armour plated And my head is ready to lose you. A face at the window, you open the door, (I scatter the letters all over the floor) 'I was passing by. Any mail? Oh, and here's my key... Hey, there's no milk in here for the tea'. Chorus So I go out, I go out, So I go out, when I come back Fridge says 'I love you'. I go out, when I come back Fridge says 'I love you'. I love you... I love you... I love you...
