I bought Sonic Youth's Dirty album not long after it came out (early 1990s) and first listened to it while I started having a nap (I was VERY tired). But then track 6 started and I was awake instantly (really needs to be heard..... some great f'ing around with guitar as only Sonic Youth can do).
And this (short) Pixies' track off of Surfer Rosa (lyrics are close to this):Wish Fulfillment
I see your wishes on the wall, and that's alright with me.
I see you run to make a call, hoping that there's someone free.
Your life and my life, they don't touch at all and that's no way to be. You've never seemed so far.....
What's real? What's true? I ain't turning my back on you.
Where you going? Where you been? Making wishes, watching dreams.
It might be simple, it might be true, I might be overwhelmed by you. You might be empty, the way your eyes just look right through.
It's such a mess now anyway, wish fulfillment every day.
I don't believe you, now I can't hear a word you say.
I see you shaking in the light, reading the headline news.
The others, they're not quite so bright, you want them to choose you.
I could almost see your face tonight, singin' simple rhythm and blues. You'll always be a star.....
Shake it baby! C'mon, scream! Did I see your face in a magazine?
Your doubt, it leaves me sore, I can't stand it anymore.
It's my favorite shot of you, you looked so pretty, your eyes were true.
I'm still on your side in spite of everything you do.
We're only blood on light on life, new pretty pictures every night
Come wish beside me, don't you know you know what's right?
Something against you
Here it comes.
I got something against you. [repeated a bit]
Here we go.
I got something against you. [repeated a bit more]
And I am gonna use it. I am one happy prick.
