Welcome to Bossy’s Ear Worm, which features songs currently in Bossy’s headphones. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.
Pixies, No. 13 Baby.
This song from the Pixies second studio release, Doolittle, is about comb stripes tear yard shore fire pig chinos and one tattooed tit, in short: Bossy has no idea.
But the raw chaos of the song, that’s what Bossy can appreciate and wants to celebrate this Labor Day weekend.
I’m in a state, I’m in a state, I’m in a state, I’m in a state
And just when you think it can’t get much better than the desperation of this chorus, the lyrics drop out of the chorus altogether, replaced with lots of chunky space and a ring-a-ling-a-ling guitar part. Mmm.

That entire album is flawless. OLD MAN VOICE: They don’t make ’em like that anymore.

Yikes! I sort of love this-I may have to reconsider my Pixies phobia.

at the risk of becoming a hipster poser, I think I love this song.
