David McCormack and the Polaroids - Live At The Zoo, Brisbane, 2004


The work of David McCormack becomes sublime at the
point of his work with the Polaroids. This band is unreal
and this is an excellent recording of a night they were
firing on all cylinders. There's some of their best as well
as the Custard track "Girls Like That" a cover of the
Iggy Pop tune I'm Bored.
Recorded here in his home town at the wonderful Zoo,
give this a listen you won't be disappointed.

And here's my song of the moment,
a wonderful track, a perfect pop song
that says it all.

Who Can It Be - David McCormack

I've been sleeping for a long time on my own,
and then you came and let me in.
Suddenly, suddenly, suddenly on the phone,
Your calling up to see if I'm back.

Look at me, look at me, look at me,looking at me,
It'd have be you, It'd have to be me.
Look at me, look at me, look at me,looking at me,
It'd have be you, It'd have to be me.

I check my watch to see if my time is wrong,
I never meant nothing I didn't write myself.
I can hit rewind or I can hit play back,
But don't look up or down
And don't look back.

Look at me, look at me, look at me,looking at me,
It'd have be you, It'd have to be me.
Look at me, look at me, look at me,looking at me,
It'd have be you, It'd have to be me.


Pinch my arm to let me know that I am here
Then all is said and done
Pinch my arm to let me know that I am here
Then all is said and done

Look at me, look at me, look at me,looking at me,
It'd have be you, It'd have to be me.
Look at me, look at me, look at me,looking at me,
It'd have be you, It'd have to be me.
