about

Mystery lovers I say again, rest easy. The subconscious world of attraction and love will always be mysterious, even if we understand intellectually how the subconscious works, (and we are still a long, long from such understanding), because ‘in the moment’ our subconscious brain is at work long before our conscious brain begins to understand what is happening.

Oxytocin, ‘the love hormone,’ has, not least, been demonstrated to have a bonding effect between lovers, which may be short-lived, and which thus may need regular repeat experiences to maintain the bond. This possibly makes us mutually ‘addicted’ to loving a particular person, the more we hug them, look into their eyes, and have sex with them, and surely when dancing intimately with them when we are virtually doing all of the above with them in the same moment. 'Oxytocinicity' is actually a made up word, but with regular usage, akin to its hormonal progenitor, it would exist.

Chemistry is an older song, and maybe the first song where I started using scientific imagery for its lyrical beauty. I dug it out of the closet and dusted it off for the prom finale scene in the stage play "Mirificus High" (2014). The initial premise, which I presented in my first ever lesson to my first ever high school class as a drama teacher was "The Breakfast Club meets Alice in Wonderland." I collaborated with students to write a play with songs and we became the Liberty Bell Drama Company. I am still amazed that we actually pulled it off, but we did, and ten weeks on from that first class we opened at The Merc Playhouse in Twisp to an enraptured audience and I was truly converted to the magical art of live theatre. Holly Brielle who sang and acted in the original stage version as a student, sings on this recorded version.

lyrics

DEEP IN THE BELLY OF THE SUN
DEEP IN THE BELLY OF THE SUN
DEEP IN THE BELLY OF THE SUN
ALLTHE ATOMS DANCE

THE PROTON CONNECTED TO THE NEUTRON
THE PROTON CONNECTED TO THE NEUTRON
MAKING EYES AT THE ELECTRONS
EVERYBODY DANCE

I LEARNED MY PERIODIC TABLE, AS BEST AS I WAS ABLE
SOME ATOMS ARE UNSTABLE, EVERYBODY DANCE

THE PLANETS GO AROUND THE SUN
THE PLANETS GO AROUND THE SUN
VENUS CHASING SATURN
EVERYBODY DANCE

BOYS AND GIRLS AND GIRLS AND BOYS
AND BOYS AND BOYS AND GIRLS AND GIRLS
BOYS WILL BE GIRLS, GIRLS WILL BE BOYS
EVERYBODY DANCE

SWIMMING IN YOUR DEEP BLUE EYES
I SMELL MISCHIEF ON YOUR MIND
I’M LIKING WHAT I FIND
IT MAKES MY ATOMS DANCE

WHAT YOU DO TO ME, MAKE ME TURN MY HEAD AND SEE
I LOVE THIS CHEMISTRY, THAT MAKES MY ATOMS DANCE

COME ON, COME ON AND DANCE WITH ME
SHAKE YOUR OXYTOCINICITY
I LOVE THIS CHEMISTRY
THAT MAKES MY ATOMS DANCE
COME ON AND MAKE MY ATOMS DANCE
COME ON AND MAKE MY ATOMS DANCE
