[Thurston]
Look who's come back home again
Loser looking for his lucky break
This time he says he just needs a friend
Ain't on the run he ain't on the take

Can you unlock this door babe
Will you just undo the chain
Will you take yr time before you
Mix up love, his love and pain

Loneliness lays down his head
Wants to get you high, better take it now
A man like that's like an unmade bed
Stained eyes searching for another way out

Do you really even want this
Maybe you just don't care
All I know it takes just one kiss, babe
For you - he's never there

Hey I know it's kinda hard
And maybe this time it will never end
Hit and run lover back in yr heart
All those answered prayers that you never have sent

Cuz now that yr in his arms babe
You know yr just in his way
Suckered by his fatal charm, oh girl
It's time we get away

I'm hoping one day Bill will get a wild hair and play "Pattern Recognition".
Wish I'd appreciated SY back in the 90s when I saw them open for Neil Young, and again at Lollapalooza. I remember thinking then, "What a load of noise." What I'm thinking now is, "What a load of genius!"

Is that Frank Black singing?
Thurston Moore, more likely. Sounds like the usual suspects.

Nice to hear some more of that "unclean" rock here ;) two songs before Modest Mouse, now Sonic Youth - nice set!
I was just thinking about how amazingly, wonderfully dischordant this is -- great stuff.

Great song... but you know, Sonic Youth has been around from 1981; they have an amazing discography. Yet, It seems a couple tracks from 2004's Nurse and one other track from 1995's Washing Machine (which is, quite honestly, one of the band's weaker albums) are all that are played on Radio Paradise! I notice the following are rejected: Candle, Dirty Boots, Disappearer, JC, Teen Age Riot, The Diamond Sea, The Empty Page. These are great songs!
the empty page has since been added, thank you very much. sonic youth is difficult to fit into playlists, though, you've gotta remember.

The song is meh but the singer--he sounds like when the radio suddenly goes off and you hear yourself singing in the car. Off key, thin and expressionless.
I can't take it any more. After hearing three songs from this album in the last 24 hours, I have to buy it. Thanks Bill.
:jump: :jump: :jump: YEAH! thanks guys...love SY! :guitarist:
oddly, this is only the second time our paths have crossed. the first, i was dancing to their countdown to white noise (83? 84?) in the sleaziest club in the naugatuck valley (and that's saying something) and now this wonderful haunting and oddly melodic work. go figure!

What he said.
Reminds of Joe Henry's lyric Tell the bed not to lay Like the mouth of a grave Beds are, of course, metaphorically loaded.
YES! YES! YES! Sonic stuff RULES! (Shut up Beavis...uhhhhh-h-h-h-heh.)
i'm embarassed to say that I don't own any Sonic Youth...Won't be able to say that for too much longer!
:notworthy: :kiss:

Sonic Youth reminds me very much of the SF acid rock scene. After Bathing at Baxters comes to mind.

excellent choice. and high time that some Sonic Youth shows up on RP already. 8) would love to hear some of their earlier stuff as well.
MMMM... this ROCKS...
This is one of my few upload attempts that wasn't a "Bad Upload". It's frustrating, but at least I'm getting some through - so the effort isn't in vain. But I wish I knew what I was doing wrong. There are some other quality tracks from this great album - their latest. I'll try to upload more.
Very interesting and amazing. Different, but likeable. A good couple voice, guitar.
Brand new song on RP? ..Le'ts see what they have to bring..It sounds great so far
