He's So Strange easter egg

I discovered something today while using the track on my music editor. I added some filters and played with the equalizer and was surprised to hear a laugh at the end of the intro (0:11) ! Who do you think is laughing ?

Jane Wiedlin - Fur (album lyrics)


INSIDE A DREAM
(Jane Wiedlin, Gardner Cole)

This is not an easy life
It’s hard to hang on to hope
There’s so many things need to change
Well I wonder how we’ll cope

But I know where to go
Run away run away

And lose myself inside a dream
Opening up a secret door
I lose myself inside a dream
And find a world worth living for

There is way too much to grasp
Am I losing hold
In a world full of many problems
I feel no control

But I know where to go
Run away run away

And lose myself inside a dream
Opening up a secret door
I lose myself inside a dream
And find a world worth living for
I lose myself inside a dream
Opening up a secret door
I lose myself inside my dream
And find a world worth living for

Only the dreamer
Can keep the hope alive
I’ll work and pray and sweat and slave
Until the dream is realized

Yes I know where to go
Run away run away

(Keep dreaming on, keep dreaming on
Find a world worth living for)

RUSH HOUR
(Jane Wiedlin, Peter Rafelson)

Something’s coming over me
I’m so dizzy I can’t see
Can’t make out the forest for the trees

My heart is beating faster now
As the traffic’s slowing down
And suddenly I’m all alone with you

It’s so good
Baby when you’re at the wheel
I can’t believe the way I feel
It’s such a rush
Just being with you

We’re driving in the Rush Hour
(ooh you send me)
You take me to the Rush Hour
(ooh you send me)
You got me in the Rush Hour

Feel it getting hot in here
Feel me getting close to you dear
Slow motion moving you moving me

Now your lips are touching mine
And in your eyes that certain shine
Honey I know just where you’re taking me

ONE HEART ONE WAY
(Jane Wiedlin, Peter Rafelson)

(One heart, one way, together)

When I was young
In all my books love never failed
People kept telling me
Love doesn’t last – life is no fairytale

You and I we were both looking for
The same thing not selfish love but
True love

One heart one way
That’s the way that
We’ll go through this life
Together
You make me dream
Eyes wide open
You make me believe again
In true love

Time is so short
Every memory a gift to treasure
Faith has returned
You brought me dreams – hope beyond measure

You and I we were both looking for
The same thing not empty love but
True love

(One heart, one way, together)

HOMEBOY
(Jane Wiedlin, Lundt, Swirsky)

He’s the finest in the neighbourhood
He’s sweet-talking and he’s looking good

But don’t you be messing with him
Better count your blessings girl
And if you like your pretty face
You'd best stay away from his place

Homeboy, homeboy
Well you’d better get off the street
Of my homeboy
Homeboy (you best behave)
Homeboy (stay out of his way)
Well you better stay off the turf
Of my homeboy

Everybody knows that we’re together
He told me that we’ll be in love forever

So if you don’t give up
I’m gonna gang up on you baby
And if you care about your health
Keep you sticky fingers to yourself

Homeboy (you best behave)
Homeboy (stay out of his way)
Well you’d better get off the street
Of my homeboy
Homeboy (you gotta cool it down)
Homeboy (you don’t fool around)
Well you better stay off the turf
Of my homeboy

Don’t you be messing with him
Better count your blessings girl
And if you care about your health
Keep you sticky fingers to yourself

THE END OF LOVE
(Jane Wiedlin, Stephen Hague)

We still talk
And when I joke
Your eyes still smile at me
We still walk
Like lovers walk
Anyone can see

But deep inside I feel cold
I know you feel it too

Is this the end of love ?
When love like day seems fleeting
What is the end of love ?
Two heart no longer meeting

Though we’re together
You hold yourself apart
Is this the end of love ?
Is it the end ?

Though we’re together
We hold ourselves apart
Is this the end of love ?
Is it the end ?
Is this the end of love ?
Is it the end ?
Is this the end of love ?
Is it the end ?

LOVER'S NIGHT
(Jane Wieldin, Peter Rafelson)

Tonight is lover’s night
Feel the heat in the air
Everybody’s gonna be all right
Leave behind their cares
Look around you boy – the stars are out
The moon is over the sea
There’s a sparkle in the ocean
In everyone you see

On lover’s night
There’s something special
Make a dream come true
On lover’s night
I wish the night would last forever more
Together with you

Tonight we celebrate
Dancing under the sky
Got no more time for hate
We’re singing it good-bye
So we make a vow and we cross our hearts
And we’re sealing it with a kiss
Every single night from this moment on
Will be lover’s night like this

All around the world
It's time for love
And every boy and girl
Is shined on from above, from above

FUR
(Jane Wiedlin, Gardner Cole)

I’ve always said my love
Was a precious thing
Worth a lot more than
The presents you bring
Flowers are fine
And candy is so sweet
But your latest offering will bring you
Back on the street

I don’t wear fur
Won’t do it
Fur’s for fools
I'm too cool
I don’t wear fur
Won’t do it
Don’t wear fur

Diamonds by the yard
I guess they’re okay
When the honeymoon is over
I can pawn ‘em anyway
But this fur coat business
Isn’t very funny
Can’t you find a better way
Of wasting your money ?

I’m not saying money
Can’t buy you love
But you can prove you want me
Without spilling blood
Stop and think a minute baby
And listen to me
Fur coats on people
Are history

I don’t wear fur
Won’t do it
Fur’s for fools
I'm too cool
I don’t wear fur
When will you think it ? Think of it !
I don’t wear fur

I don’t wear fur
Won’t do it
Fur’s not cool
I'm not a fool
I don’t wear fur
Won’t do it
Don’t wear fur

GIVE !
(Jane Wiedlin, Peter Rafelson)

You’re an island I don’t understand
Being so alone doesn’t make a man, make a man
C’mon let it out be a hero
Keep it inside you wind up with zero

Don't analyse or compromise just
Give ! I’ll give you everything you want
Give ! I’ll give you everything you need
Let me let you give yourself to me

All of your life you’ve been really tough
But in these days it just ain’t enough, ain’t enough

I know I can be just as strong as you
Now you’ve gotta learn to be tender too, tender too

Don't analyse or compromise just
Give ! I’ll give you everything you want
Give ! I’ll give you everything you need
Let me let you give yourself to me
Give yourself to me
I’ll give you everything

SONG OF THE FACTORY
(Jane Wiedlin, Wooley, Stephen Hague)

It is cold
But it is warm
It is one
But not alone
There is beauty
In the beast
It is endless
It is home

Listen to the promise calling me
Can you hear the song of the factory
Can you hear the song of the factory

Always moving
Never leaving
It is words
Beyond meaning
You can feel it
If you try
It has rhythm
Without seeming

Listen to the promise calling me
Can you hear the song of the factory
Listen to the promise inside me
Can you hear the song of the factory
Can you hear the song of the factory

WHATEVER IT TAKES
(Jane Wiedlin, Kessler, Simms)

Look up at the stars
And tell me it’s not possible
How can you despair
When around you is a miracle
Love flows through our life
Like blood in our veins

Whatever it takes
I will be there to give you
Whatever it takes
I will be there

Look into my eyes
I could tell your prophecy
Of such strange desire
Of promises and destiny
Now and forever
The unbroken vow

Whatever it takes
I will be there to give it
Whatever it takes
I will be there to live it
Whoever you need
I am the one that knows you
Wherever you go
I will be there
For you always for you
For you always for you

Love flows through our life
Like blood in our veins

Whatever it takes
I will be there to give you
Whatever it takes
I will be there and if you’ve
Forgotten the way
I will be there to show you
Whenever you need me
I will be there
I will be there
I will be there
