In the Water, See it Swimmin’

This song came out when I was in college. I cannot believe it's twenty years old now. What an incredible tune and it's been covered by gobs and gobs of people. Go ahead and hit play. When it's over, feel free to hit play again. And again. No one's going to blame you.

    Wow. I haven't heard this before (or prob any of the Pixies stuff). I heard some familiar bits in the song and I know I've heard "where is my mind" in a song I loved that was more recent. I finally remembered:M.I.A. – $20It's neat (or frightening depending on perspective) to hear influences bubble up (rather obviously) in music. :-p

    yay for pixies!

    I love this song, and these days I always associate it with the ending scene of the movie Fight Club. Fabulous.

  9. CrowSeer says:

    Yep, yep… it's a great song in its own right, but with the Fight Club and MIA connections, it just gets cooler and cooler…

    The fact Placebo does it live (and with Frank Black on stage with them, no less) on their DVD is coolest of all. If you're a Placebo fan, that is. Which I am. Yay for me.

    "It's neat (or frightening depending on perspective) to hear influences bubble up (rather obviously) in music." Yes, it can make you feel even more of a connection if you yourself were also influenced/inspired by the same artists you're hearing come out in the new music you're hearing.

  13. Brown Suga' says:

    HEY!!! Wasn't this the song at the end of Fight Club?

  14. Phaedrus says:

    I have always loved this song too. It's cool too to know that the Pixies were a huge influence on Kurt Cobaine.
