Description

Unofficial video created for the 1982 single 'Melt!' 

"Melt" / "Il Est Né Le Divin Enfant" is a double A-sided single by British rock band Siouxsie and the Banshees released in 1982. It was released as the second and final single from the band's fifth album A Kiss in the Dreamhouse; "Il Est Né Le Divin Enfant" does not appear on that album.

The sensual lyrics of "Melt!" compare an intense sexual interlude with a lover to dying. Its lyrics can also allude to a S&M encounter ("...Handcuffed in lace and blood and sperm / Swimming in poison / Gasping in the fragrance / Sweat carves a screenplay / of discipline and devotion...").

"The Baudelairean imagery of 'Melt' evokes claustrophobic scents of opium, sex and sickly flowers, and lapses into morbidity with lines like, 'You are the melting man and, as you melt, you are beheaded,'" observed Dave Morrison in a review of Twice Upon a Time: The Singles. "OK, it's a touch ludicrous, but a great pop song nevertheless."
