Headhunter (Acapella)

by Parralox



One, you lock the target...

Headhunter is a 1988 song by the Belgian EBM band Front 242. The song was a major hit in the electronic and industrial music scenes, and Front By Front subsequently became the top selling album in the history of Wax Trax! Records.

Parralox covered the song on their Recovery album, released way back in 2013.

Headhunter also appears as a mashup with "We Believe In Electric Love" on the Eye In The Sky EP, titled "We Believe In Electric Headhunters"

As we inch closer to the completion of our massive Travelogue project, we are releasing some teaser acapellas.

Please enjoy this acapella version of Headhunter.

Verse 1
Today he has no means
He's alone and anonymous
I'm looking for this man
To sell him to other men
I'm looking for this man
To sell him to other men
At ten times his price at least

One you lock the target,
Two you bait the line,
Three you slowly spread the net
And four you catch the man!

Verse 2
I'm looking for a man
Who knows the rules of the game
Who's able to forget them
To realize my aim

Repeat Chorus

Verse 3
I'm looking for this man
To make us rich and famous
But written in his cells
He's got the marks of a genius
I'm looking for this man
To sell him to other men
To sell him to other men
At ten times his price at least

If ever there was a new electronic pop band to encapsulate and emulate the legendary stylings of Depeche Mode, The Human League, Erasure, New Order, Pet Shop Boys and the spirit of Madonna in her 80s day-glo era, then Australia’s Parralox are that modern-day reincarnation. ... more
