Carole Pope and Rough Trade:

Fashion Victim (1980)

You say I’m lacking in passion
I say I’m true to you
In my fashion
You say I’m a narcissist
I say I’m image conscious
I’m a victim of fashion
Fashion and accessories
Fashion, fashion and accessories
You hate my avant-garde friends
They understand and appreciate me
We’re all victims of fashion and accessories
Subliminal seduction from the glare of my TV
You say you want to be seduced by me
If I take off my clothes
My carefully contrived image goes
I’m so afraid to show the real me
I’m a victim of Fashion
Fashion and accessories
Fashion, fashion and accessories
*Montana, Fendi, Lagerfeld
*Mugler, Kenzo, Chloé
I’m a victim of fashion and accessories
*Maud Frizon, Jap, Yamamoto, Rykiel
*Daily, Blue, Zapata, Kamali, Dorthy Biś
*Yaki, Torii, Pinky and Diane
Fashion and accessories
I’m a victim of fashion
Fashion and accessories
Fashion, fashion and accessories
You hate my avant-garde friends
They understand and appreciate me
We’re all victims of fashion and accessories
I’m always true to you in my fashion
In my fashion
I’m always true to you in my fashion
In my fashion, in my fashion
Yes I’m always true to you in my fashion
In my fashion, in my fashion
