    Laurie Anderson says that it is about the American military in Iran in the 1980's. Interesting article about it here...

    Superman, Judge, Mom & Dad (God), Mother (Death, the hand that takes). She's calling us with a message (a final War comming). Hold me Mom (our death wish).

    I think it is as some stated the essence of a warning sign. War, AI take over, etc but what ever the threat it will not be bold and obvious, it comes with open arms, in a way to make you vulnerable until it's too late. Like Nazism, like socialism, like AI, like our current social media take over here to help, then used as a spy tool and a freedom of though controller. BTW, i have been writing code since i was 9 and born in 85, so i do see this exact thing happening in technology. Told people years ago we so blindly google things and except top results as reality facts, so if you control that algorithm you can change societies, countries, and history.

    I think it's about the unstoppable progress of technology. It's a work of genius and very hypnotic.

    Nothing wrong with this hit song I'm still enjoying it after all these years. Plus the remix from Matt Pop and David Bowie .I'm a retired D.J and Entertainment manager and radio presenter. So I do know a good song and I have never had any complaints when I have played it and I spent 20 years in the business.

    I think this song is about an upcoming war. The voice on the phone is warning the listener about it. "Here come the planes". Dont listen to the other interpretation... they clearly dont appreciate the work of a genius. Laurie Anderson is pretty much the mother of techno and synth music. She invented so many amazing instruments and techniques. Her music is deep, you have to think about it quite a bit to get a meaning out of it.

    That the so called artist and anyone who likes this honking garbage, stayed too long at a pot party!

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
