Echo & the Bunnymen. I read it in a magazine I don't wanna see it again I threw away the magazine And looked for someone to explain I don't wanna look back I can't look around I don't wanna see it coming round. Listen to the ups and downs Listen to the sound they make Don't be scared when it gets loud When you're skin begins to shake 'Cause you don't wanna look back You gotta look tall You gotta see those creeps crawl. I know you know I know you know.

The Bunnymen mellowed to a degree for their fourth album, the widely acclaimed Ocean Rain, but all it did was cause them to get weirder. The album is stuffed with queasy midtempo tracks and bizarre orchestration, but it's by no means impenetrable. The strangest song, "Yo Yo Man" limps through skewed verses, building to McCulloch's refrain, "I'm the yo yo man/ Always up and down," which triggers a startling interjection by vigorously bowed strings, percussion and Sergeant's spastic guitar.
Echo and the Bunnymen, at least on Crocodiles, display a very interesting mix of psychedelic touches and a harder edged sound that was'nt exactly punk- what was called "new wave" at the time. All the songs are great on Crocodiles, there is no "filler", It has a raw and spontaneous sound that some of their later albums don't.
