Girlie So Groovy

Listen | Buy

NOTES: This is for you-know-who. This, my favorite Pixies' song, is off the CD Doolittle. However, that's not my favorite Pixies' CD. The best Pixies' CD is most definitely Bossanova, due to the inclusion of "Velouria," "Is She Weird?," "Hang Wire," and "Rock Music" (1:52 of reckless screaming of the line "Your mouth's a mile away," which also carries a certain relevance these days).

Got me a movie
I want you to know
Slicing up eyeballs
I want you to know
Girlie so groovy
I want you to know
Don't know about you
But I am un chien Andalusia

I am un chien Andalusia

Wanna grow
Up to be
Be a debaser

Got me a movie
Ah ha ha ho
Slicing up eyeballs
Ah ha ha ho
Girlie so groovy
Ah ha ha ho
Don't know about you
But I am un chien Andalusia

I am un chien Andalusia

I suppose I might be referred to as you-know-who.

Saw the lyrics, thought about throwing something in to break the silence, or more accurately, the gigantic black cat head-butting my leg demanding attention.

Slid my fingers past the line of Pixies CDs..."Trompe le Monde"..."Doolittle"...."Surfer Rosa"..."Veloria" (live -- and _excellent CD), "Come On Pilgrim", yadda yadda yadda. Seems I actually managed to keep them together.

Then I saw The The's "Infected". Don't listen to it often, but it's purely an intoxicating CD.

Odd...just ran across a site with lyrics you can't copy. Bastards.

"Sweet Bird of Truth"

6 oíclock in the morning & Iím the last person in this plane
Still awake
Yíknow I can almost smell the blood washing against the shores,
Of this land that canít forget itís past.
Oh the wind that carries this plane, is the wind of change,
Heaven sent and hell bent!
Over the mountain tops we go, just like all the other gi joes


This is your captain calling--with an urgent warning
Weíre above the gulf of arabia--our altitude is falling
& I canít hold her up--thereís no time for thinking
All hands on deck--this bird is sinking

Across the beaches and cranes, rivers and trains
All the money Iíve made--bodies Iíve maimed.
Time was when I seemed to know,
Just like any other gi joe
Should I cry like a baby, or die like a man
While all the planets like wars start joining hands,
Oh what a heaven--what a hell!!
Yíknow thereís nothing can be done in the whole wide world.

I donít know whatís wrong or right,
Iím just a regular guy, with bottled up insides,
I ainít ever been to church or believed in
Jesus christ
But Iím praying that gods with you when you die!!!


Damn. Eerie lyrics to be sure, 'specially seeing they're from '86.

mmnnn...pinot grigio

Damn, you also like The The's "Infected"? And you also have a big black cat? Hmm...

I also like pinot grigio, and have two black cats.

None of which are infected.

Yeah, pinot grigio is okay, but what about mixing up equal parts Everclear and Mad Dog 20/20?
