Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.

This was the first song the Pixies released when they got back in 2004, and I really like it. It’s unusual for a Pixies song in that it has the now-departed Kim Deal on lead vocals. It’s got this nice manic, bonkers energy I find appealing.

Plus, I heard a lot of the lyrics came from some kid’s notebook they found. I think they wrote more, because “bosses in offices on automatic drip” is too good for some kid’s notebook.

Enjoy, fellow kooks!
