For Henry

Lyrics: 

She's got a single black rose in her rear view mirror.
A white tank top with glistening sweat.
She was a platinum blonde with a mischievous smile.
A single black rose in the rear view mirror.

She's one of a kind! She's Liquid Starshine!
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooooh!

She's got a single black rose in her rear view mirror.
An eclectic mix in the cassette deck.
She had the face of an angel a pale silhouette.
A single black rose in the rear view mirror.

She's one of a kind! She's Liquid Starshine!
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooooh ooh ooh!

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooooh!

Cool sounds, I like the bright bass upfront.

She's something! Liquid starshine! OK, I can see that. I find the image of the black rose in the rearview mirror an intriguing image -- she's driving away from something? I like that she has a cassette deck. The car is either very old or completely custom.

Ooh, I love the moody 80's goth vibes! Reminds me of Joy Division or maybe Gang of Four. (Or Bauhaus, I guess, obviously, but that wasn't actually what came to mind first for me.) I actually expected this to sound synthpoppier from reading the lyrics first, I think because the image of a sweating lady in the car reminds me of "The Chauffeur" by Duran Duran, but I love the darker feel and that minimalist arrangement, it's super dramatic with the bass up front and that insistent guitar riff coming in, and the song takes its sweet time to get where it's going without ever feeling like it drags. Great song!

This is pure goth, I love love love it. It has that desperate-I'm-not-gonna-get-her feel, admiration, lust, desire and self deprecating atmosphere I love so much about it. Lovely, your singing style is also reminiscent of this style. The mood is perfect. Awesome song
