Moby. That's when I reach for my revolver (1996). It's actually a cover from a 1981 Mission of Burma song.

Patti Smith with Frederick.
I seem to recall there's something tragic with this song (as a non-native English speaker, haven't paid much attention to the actual lyrics, weird though that may sound. Non-native English speakers are always first struck by the musical arrangements, then the text). Anyroad, IIRC the Frederick Smith is singing about was her friend or husband who tragically died. I think so. RIP.
