When I'm at the pearly gates This will be on my videotape, my videotape Mephistopheles is just beneath And he's reaching up to grab me
This is one for the good days And I have it all here In red, blue, green Red, blue, green
You are my center When I spin away Out of control on videotape On videotape On videotape On videotape On videotape On videotape
This is my way of saying goodbye Because I can't do it face to face I'm talking to you after it's too late No matter what happens now You shouldn't be afraid Because I know today has been the most perfect day I've ever seen

Francia from Caracas, --Such an amazing, super song!
Bobby B from North West, United KingdomLive versions better than the album!? Really, joe? To each his own. I found videotape on most of their live performances to be fairly dull, but on record there's an electric atmosphere, like it could explode at any time.
Lovely sentiment to the lyrics, but I spose some might find it too sentimental.
Eren from Ankara, TurkeyMephistopheles (also Mephistophilus, Mephistophilis, Mephostopheles, Mephisto and variants) is a name given to a devil or demon in the Faust legend. (wikipedia)
Joe from Dublinalthough most of the live versions - and the scotch mist version - are better than the album version. (brilliant album though too)
Jimi Hendrix opened for The Monkees on their 1967 tour, and it did not go well. The young, mostly female crowd shouted "Davy" when Hendrix sang the word "Lady" in "Foxy Lady" in honor of who they came to see: Monkees lead singer Davy Jones.
