Lightbulb Angels Egg

The Rosebud egg ..

With the lost surprises...
"King of the Mountain" was released as a single by EMI Records on 24 October 2005, Bush's first single since "And So Is Love", which had been released 12 years before.. It was first played on BBC Radio 2 on 21 September 2005. Written about 10 years before most of the songs on Aerial, the lyrics enquire whether Elvis Presley might still be alive someplace, "...looking like a happy man..." and playing with "Rosebud"..She's the sweetest little rosebud That Texas ever knew...

Elvis are you out there somewhere
Looking like a happy man?
In the snow with Rosebud
And king of the mountain..

Another Hollywood waitress
Is telling us shes having your baby
And theres a rumour that youre on ice
And you will rise again someday
And that theres a photograph
Where youre dancing on your grave..

The Rosebud egg is a jewelled enameled Easter egg made by Michael Perchin under the supervision of the Russian jeweller Peter Carl Fabergé in 1895, for Nicholas II of Russia, who presented the egg to his wife, Empress Alexandra Feodorovna.. It was the first egg that Nicholas presented to Alexandra..The familiar yellow rose in 1895 was the yellow China tea rose that had been introduced by Parkes from China in 1824..Yellow roses were the most valued ones in the Empress' native Germany..Fabergé charged 3,250 rubles for the egg...Vekselberg purchased some nine Imperial eggs from the collection, for almost $100 million..The egg is now part of the Victor Vekselberg Collection, owned by The Link of Times Foundation...
