Song of the day: Robert Fripp – "You Burn Me Up I’m A Cigarette"

If you’ve always wanted to hear King Crimson‘s Robert Fripp channelling Cheap Trick (well, who wouldn’t?), then you’ve come to the right place:

Believe it or not, the singer on “You Burn Me Up…” was Daryl Hall. Yes, that Daryl Hall.

The track appears on Mr. Fripp’s 1979 solo album, Exposure. Now, because I like this album a lot, I’d like to pester you with a couple of other tracks from it. First up, here’s the intense instrumental “Breathless”:

And if that wasn’t heavy enough for you, here’s “Disengage” featuring strangulated vocals by English singer-songwriter Peter Hammill:
