Mandylion = the shroud of Turin, a pice of fabric that would have been by Jesus to dry his face and where a print of his face actually remains

My Electricity: Anneke told during Live in The Living Room it was about a romance she had with the guitar player of I cant remember which US metal band... But well it was about 1.5 year ago and in Dutch so maybe I misunderstood it LOL

I always took My Electricity in a literal sense, a song from a girl lying in a grass field and feeling her humanity, the contact with the world... it sounds more poetic to me. I'm staggered cause not so long ago I (believed I) had realised TG was so much about love and feelings without ever talking about physical love, and I kinda thought this was a wonderful thing (if you understand).

I'm a bit agree with you Burn. I've read (don't remember where) that Anneke wrote this song for her boyfriend who were far away... :wink:

I also thought "My Electricity" was about... touching herself... and what it comes as the result of doing that.

@ tenebris: Yum :wink: .

For me it's more about how when you make love you feel the other's person "electricity."

Anyway, it definitely has a sexual connotation IMO 8) .

hmmm,

I'd have to say that I'd never thought of this song in a sexual way these past 9 years... :o
I suppose it kinda makes sense though to look at it from that angle...
though it kinda ruins the song for me a little, hehe.

No problem, it's my job :D .

@ Coyote: ¡Eres un pervertido!... (you pervert)... Hehe just kidding.

Wait I actually thought the exact same thing... :oops: :lol: (so I guess that makes us both Latino guys perverts hehe :lol: ).

Anneke is really pretty anyhow, both physically and as a person :P .

It could be about self estimulation or about an orgasm... somehow a sexual thing. IMHO.
