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.

What is it about?

This is what Wikipedia says about this song:

In contrast to the tragic view of love on Statues, the song “Take My Hand”, a relatively upbeat love song, was an outtake.

The song had a prominent brass scoring, jazz-funk bass line and wistful piano, as well as a confident multitracked delivery by Murphy that displays her extraordinary vocal technique.

“Take My Hand” is available as a B-side to “Forever More”, and was donated to War Child to help the charity raise money for children affected by war.[9]
