Flesh Of My Flesh" opens with a bell-like keyboard line over a funky rhythm guitar at a steady, loping pace, an intro that sounds like it was cribbed from an early-'70s Spinners tune or some other Philly soul gem. Then Edwyn Collins' endearingly mannered, wayward-pitched vocals disabuse the listener of that notion right quick. The combination of Collins' post-punk vocal style and the smooth pop-R&B arrangement is the archetype of the late-period Orange Juice sound. Lyrically, it's one of several bitter breakup songs on Rip It Up, with verses composed primarily of pithy, snarky one-liners like "Here's a penny for your thoughts/Incidentally, you may keep the change" that create an interesting friction with the smooth, poppy tune and the chorus, which is understatedly catchy in exactly the same manner as some of Burt Bacharach and Hal David's '60s hits, right down to the trademark muted trumpet interjections.
