completely inappropriate lyrics

we listened to Tones on Tail when we were on tour, and talked a lot about how the first side of "Pop" is so amazing but the second side is kind of a drag. Anyway, for me, one of the best parts of the record is the drumming, and maybe even more than that the way that the drums sound? They have this way that they boom but then don't resonate, they sound huge like a kettle drum but the sounds are all succinct, they don't ring out at all. It's a weird state, but really amazing. I kept thinking about it and remembered that this song has a similar drum sound, totally consistent throughout the song, like he plays the same beat regardless of the changes in the rest of the song. So rad! I think sometimes we try similar things in Silk Flowers. Anyway, if he weren't singing about seeing pictures of girls topless, I would totally call this one of my favorite songs ever.
