Recordings

  1. Album version, 4'38.
    Performed by The Dukes of Stratosphear.
    Released on 25 O'Clock.

    Andy: “ ‘Your Gold Dress’ was the first things written for 25 O'Clock. I came up with the stupidest riff in the history of riffs and thought it was spot on.” Dave: “We borrowed Nicky Hopkins sound from ‘She's A Rainbow’.” Andy: “He made Satanic Majesties - The Stones would have fallen apart at that time without Nicky Hopkins. He is ‘We Love You’. One of my favorite ever albums.”

Lyrics

You gold dress is whirling around
Like a fan it's lifting you high
High above the ground
Never coming down

You gold dress is burning alight
Deafens me with the sound of the sun
Setting fire to the night
And everything's all right

Vibrations coming my way
When you're floating on by
In your gold dress
Vibrations coming to play
When you're filling the sky
With your gold ... dress

Your gold dress is shaming the stars
A thousand melting Dali guitars
Make no sound
And dripping slowly down
Your gold dress is all I can see
Blind my eyes but there it will be
Beacon burning bright
And everything's all right

Your gold dress!

A thousand melting Dali Guitars
Make no sound
And dripping slowly down
Your gold dress is all I can see
Blind my eyes but there it will be
Beacon burning bright
And everything's all right

Your gold dress!
