Television

 

Written: 1983

Writers: Peter Sinclair

Status: Recorded and published by Terry Jacks

Genre and Style: Pop

Comments: Dave: Television shows Peter Sinclair’s genius for creating haunting, dark catchy songs that reflect the pop culture. Although Terry Jacks recorded it he could never match Peter’s eerie demo of a young, isolated man stuck watching late night TV in his apartment because he has nothing else to do. One can almost feel the spooky blue eye of the television poking into the dark room at 3 AM while some poor wretch watches with red eyes, hypnotized, unable to tear himself away.

Comments: Al: This was my favourite of Pete’s songs that he wrote for Terry Jacks.

Television

I always watch it when I’m lonely

Makes my house feel kind of homey

From a satellite in space

Pictures beam down to my place.

 

Oooh, oooh watching my TV

You don’t know what it does to me

Oooh, oooh watching my TV

You don’t know what it does to me

Television, television

Television, television

 

When I watch a late night movie

My remote control beside me

From a satellite in space

I fall in love with a video face

 

Oooh, oooh watching my TV

You don’t know what it does to me

Oooh, oooh watching my TV

You don’t know what it does to me

 

I turn on the late show

There’s no place to go

I watch until my eyes are red

Then I drag myself to bed

 

Oooh, oooh watching my TV

You don’t know what it does to me

Oooh, oooh watching my TV

You don’t know what it does to me

Television, television

Television, television
