The song "Shooting Star" off Oh Mercy seems to stand out from the rest of the album almost like an afterthought. (Not just because it's last track). I know Bob is on record as saying this album is in the "stream of conciousness" vein but who is the "Shooting Star" to whom he is referring? I have my own theories - which are based on personal experience. Would appreciate any feedback.
