MCMLXXXVIII #thiswasweirdbutcool

An incredible and courteous blogger, our Jim Adams, concocted Song Lyric Sunday perhaps a year ago, to review tunes, both their titles, and verses. For an excellent Valentine’s Day this weekend, Jim’s prompt is the following: Brain/Mind/Think

Inside Our Heads – A Unique Title For Me (wordpress.com)

I likewise surmise that somebody will think this, but the word mind is in both the title and the lyrics of the band the Pixies’ 1988 tune, Where is my Mind?, so both checkmark boxes have been scratched.

Valentine’s Day is a magnificent day. Likewise, Where is my Mind? is a wonderful rock song, that, for example, concludes an excellent feature film, and it is a spoiler to tell you which movie. Notwithstanding, about the topic of taking care of business, it doesn’t hurt us horribly to battle, on the off chance that we have a way before us of self-assurance, and trust.

An anti-hero doesn’t always get the girl.

In 1988, I think the Pixies were already a lovely band. Other Song Lyric Sundays, Jim has pointed out to me, in comments, that he has by now heard of a few new bands by way of me. Song Lyric Sunday’s been teaching me how to go more slowly about what you might call a topic of conversation.

I don’t know right away what the lyrics of Where is my Mind? are about. The phrase of the title is an apologetic expression which means: it’s unfortunate that I have not been paying attention. The word mind is in the title of the Pixies tune, and furthermore provides the ensemble.

The song seems to be about exploring a paradise retreat. The Pixies are regularly talked about, and I agree that a couple of Pixies melodies examine the Caribbean, the extraordinary swimming there. The website urban dictionary, in its entry for Where is my Mind?, refers obliquely to the recording artist Rihanna, and to her native Barbados.

At the point when I was in my first year of school, one friend hailed from Barbados, and he was a pleasant man. Settling the riddle of turning into a grown-up appeared to be an easy decision. It would include music and entertainment and other beloved properties of our combined cultural experience, growing and unfolding.

I’m attempting to say that to get an opportunity to throw about something like nineteen-eighties period hardware and that sort of business, is fun. To tell the truth, our guy in the dorm liked Star Wars, for example. That’s not the film with Where is my Mind? at the end, by the way.

it’s what you say when your head callaspes and there’s nothing in it.

Before that, my sibling Josh had been known to indicate a proud interest in music at school. You might think it was his CD I grabbed for myself, but I usually didn’t do anything as mean to my brother as stealing from his music collection. When he’d been moved out for years, I sometimes sneaked into his bedroom to find a CD to listen to, left behind by him, but only once in a blue moon did I do something facile like that.

The line-up of the Pixies includes singer Black Francis, which is a stage name, and also Kim Deal, playing the bass guitar. Joey Santiago plays lead guitar and David Lovering plays the drums.

Charles Thompson IV is an American vocalist, musician, and guitarist. Come 1988, Thompson (“Frank Black”) had a bunch of great songs to do. He met Kim Deal for the first time when she was looking to join a band, and she answered his newspaper ad.

She was only discovering her talent, and they got a bunch of songs together, and on their combined strengths as musicians, they struck a deal with 4AD. Their first release as a band is the EP Come on Pilgrim. You know, my Come on Pilgrim CD may be as yet kicking around here.

Where is my Mind?

I should clarify for you that I wasn’t listening to the Pixies as far back in time as 1988. It was well after the band split in 1993 that I got a little more interested in the music the Pixies had heretofore done together. The first Pixies EP is from the year 1987, followed by a 1988 LP, on which you will find Where is my Mind?.

Pixies

The cover art of the 1997 Pixies retrospective Death to the Pixies presents 1987 as the band’s first year of making music. Wikipedia says Where is my Mind? is the seventh track on the Pixies’ 1988 introduction Surfer Rosa. The tune was composed by frontman Black Francis while he went to the University of Massachusetts Amherst, recalling scuba in the Caribbean.

I only took a little interest in what my brother was playing on his stereo, but I saw he had Last Splash by the Breeders, since it was on the radio a lot. Nowadays the Breeders’ Kim Deal has long quit the Pixies, opting not to rejoin, when the band synched up again, in the year 2004. That’s a good band, too.

Julie, a girl from Scarborough who I met during a return visit to my college town, when I was twenty-five years old or so, said that a ton of Christian individuals would simply debilitate exciting music. It is difficult for me to oppose getting keen on music. I would never prize an informed outlook over something more articulate, whether unlikely.

You could say there was something about the way in the days the social media network MySpace was hot handling music that kind of got to me. I had the understanding that a periodical like Rolling Stone would be useful, say, to find great music, but it was interesting to see things were swiftly changing in the 2000s, in many different areas of life.

Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day, readers. Thanks to Jim Adams for the blog prompt.

By the way, the word “stop” in the first line of this Pixies song has from time to time got me thinking of why listeners wouldn’t consider stopping the album during play. I think it is a metaphor (though a weird metaphor). By the way, Black Francis sings the word mind nine or ten times during the song.

Pixies

Ooh, stop
Ooh
Ooh
With your feet on the air and your head on the ground
Try this trick and spin it, yeah
Your head will collapse
But there’s nothing in it
And you’ll ask yourself
Where is my mind?
Where is my mind?
Where is my mind?
Way out in the water
See it swimming
I was swimming in the Caribbean
Animals were hiding behind the rock
Except the little fish
Bump into me, swear he’s
Tryin’ a talk to me, say wait wait
Where is my mind?
Where is my mind?
Where is my mind?
Way out in the water
See it swimming
With your feet on the air and your head on the ground
Try this trick and spin it, yeah
Your head will collapse
If there’s nothing in it
And you’ll ask yourself
Where is my mind?
Where is my mind?
Where is my mind?
Way out in the water
See it swimming
Ooh
With your feet on the air and your head on the ground
Try this trick and spin it, yeah
Ooh
Ooh
Ooh
Ooh
Ooh
