Hey I said you're godless and
It seems like you're a soulless friend
As spotless as you were back then
I swear that you are godless
Hey I guess you're lonely when
I gave you all it took so then
A stranger there is ever been
I guess, it's what you wanted
Of late, it seems lonely I would be
I begged, I plead
But this is all that I have gotten
Hey as for the day my friend
To hope that you could ever bend
I swear you are, I swear you are
I swear, that you are godless
Hey I said you're godless
Hey and you're a soulless friend
Hey I said you're heartless
And I swear, I swear
Godless
Godless
you're godless

Herb Albert would be proud.... & George too.
Don't forget the 6:08 live version!  Dandy's recorded two shows at the Wonder ballroom in Portland in 2013 that came out in 2014 (Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia Live At The Wonder).  And brought the horn player!  Some tasty trumpet on this cut

Portland IPAs and the DWs.  Best day ever!
Godless is Godlike! Once this is done on to find that +5 minute version!

There is an "extended outro" on the "Capital Years" version which puts it over 5 minutes

I feel that way about the entire song. Another post below mentioned that this is on nearly all of their playlists. Same here. I have been guilty of hitting repeat for this one! If someone puts out a 5 minute long re-mix - I'm in!

 

 
Thank you for this information!

Now that is a funny comeback, Proclivities! 

And even to this day I don't get how George H was found to have unconsciously plagiarized the Chiffons' "He's so Fine"  - unbelievable really.  At least the Dandy Warhols made use of the "My Sweet Lord" sound humorously in giving us "Godless."  It's a 9 from this Sweaty Seattleite (hey it's in the 90s here {#Sunny}




Good call

this song is love at first sight.   Just listening to it by accident, if you wandered into a room where it is playing automatically makes you one of the Kool Kids!  It's that Kool.

F' it, me too! why do I only have this rated as a 9?

Fixed.

Other than the first two chords, it's an entirely different chord progression than that of "My Sweet Lord" and "He's So Fine".  
11!
8 to 9 ...

Love that intro distortion. So much. It could go on for another minute or two and I'd be perfectly fine with it.

Great song, love the melancholy film clip. This is on almost all of my regular playlists.
That horn line sounds just like Ed Kuepper from the late 80's
