What is it?
Today’s song is the song Dominoid by English-Irish music duo Moloko from their interestingly named 1995 music album Do You Like My Tight Sweater?.
Here are the descriptions for the videos above:
Official video for Moloko – ‘Dominoid’.
Released in 1996, ‘Dominoid’ was taken from Moloko’s debut album ‘Do You Like Me Tight Sweater’.
I can’t control this urge, so I risk what I wager,
I lost to a chicken shit never was panty sniffer,
Got my eye on a cool hand
And I wonder about his dog of a day,
Wanted to be a big shot real hot
Down with the domino,
You know calling on instinct calling the bluff,
Telling a tale ten stories high to the operative,
I figured the numbers under pressure, I played by the seat of my pants,
Then fate took a twist quietly wile faking it
Waiting for a fluke,
Waiting for a sign by now boggle eyed,
If I believe, I will receive
Leaning on the ever lasting tree,
Hanging in the hands of fate, down with the domino,
I’m no, down with the domino,
I’m no casino Casanova with the good luck eyes,
It’s hard to tell whose friend or foe
When you go down like the domino,
One track mind, just digging ’till I find,
The gold at the end of the rainbow just keep on going,
Though twisted up inside her fool heart
Takes over and jumps on for the ride,
Down with the domino,
I need the roulette to make me forget,
Rotating random eyes roll in tandem,
Lady looks illusive but I do what I can
Better be a day as a lion,
Than a lifetime as a lamb
Down with the domino, down, you know.

What is it about?
According to legend and Wikipedia this is how that album got its interesting name:
The title of the album is derived from the singer Róisín Murphy’s pick-up line to Mark Brydon at a party in 1995:
“Do you like my tight sweater? See how it fits my body!”
A romantic and professional relationship between the two continued for several years after.
I can imagine Ms. Murphy using this pick-up line with her unique and nice voice in a sexy and partly comedic tone.
I can see this song being modified to be a song for a James Bond movie.
