SONG OF THE WEEK #161: Robert Forster - "I've Been Looking For Somebody"

Danger In The Past (1990) cover photo is a brilliant James Joyce stylisation. The original picture was taken in Zurich in 1915 and showed Joyce play some kind of an Em variation.  

The album itself, Forster's first after the Go-Betweens' split-up, is a masterpiece. From the classic opening verse of "Baby Stones" to the elegiac beauty of "Justice" - it's all you should know about charismatic pop songwriting. And "I've Been Looking For Somebody" is where words fail you completely.
