Neil Young har fÃ¥et en edderkop opkaldt efter sig. Det kan man da kalde hæder. Og det fik mig til at erindre The Cures suggestive vuggesang Lullabye fra albummet Disintegration (1989). Nummeret var en overgang nærmest kendingsmelodi for P4s Elektriske Barometer, dengang tilbage i firserne. Og sangen blev vist nok The Cures største singlehit til dato. ForstÃ¥eligt nok, for nummeret holder stadigvæk…

spy something begining with S…….

On candystripe legs the spiderman comes
Softly through the shadow of the evening sun
Stealing past the windows of the blissfully dead
Looking for the victim shivering in bed
Searching out fear in the gathering gloom and
A movement in the corner of the room!
And there is nothing I can do
And I realise with fright
That the spiderman is having me for dinner tonight!

Quietly he laughs and shaking his head
Creeps closer now
Closer to the foot of the bed
And softer than shadow and quicker than flies
His arms are around me and his tongue in my eyes
“Be still be calm be quiet now my precious boy
Don’t struggle like that or I will only love you more”
But it’s much too late to get away or turn on the light
The spiderman is having you for dinner tonight

And I feel like I’m being eaten
By a thousand million shivering furry holes
And I know that in the morning I will wake up
In the shivering cold

The spiderman is always hungry…
