Hello all Roxy Music fans. Wanted to let you know of new posts on roxymusicsongs.com

'Do the Strand' lyrics are analyzed and the song comes out darker than its infectious beat suggests. A welcome entry into the masterpiece For Your Pleasure.

DTS and EOY are major highwater marks for BF as a lyricist, tunes where he channels the glib, arch, and always robust phrasings of premier show tune artists such as Cole Porter and Noel Coward in a rockin' 70s update worthy of Fred Astaire the Crooner.

Here in The States "Strand" was widely used as a name for movie theaters (just as "Roxy" was widely used) and I always thought that BF cleverly utilized the connection between the two names...

Here's a link to 1916 Strand theater in a small town in Ohio that is still active:
