Where Is My Mind?
by Pixies
(316 plays) | (1 fan)

Frank Black on "Where is My Mind?", October 1997: "That came from me snorkeling in the Caribbean and having this very small fish trying to chase me. I don't know why - I don't know too much about fish behavior."

Place To Be
by Nick Drake
(12 plays) | (0 fans)

Drake's lyrics often had a painterly quality, and what makes his third album, Pink Moon, so unique is not simply that it dealt with depression, but that it did so in pastel colours rather than the blacks and greys you'd typically expect. Recorded alone over two nights, on acoustic guitar with almost none of the accompaniments that adorned Bryter Layter, it could be stark and unrelenting in places. But for an album written in a state of crippling despair it was often astonishingly pretty. Place to Be, which documents a darkening outlook with the passage of time, is one such moment. Indeed, Drake's vocals sound like they might not quite summon the strength to deliver the final line: "Now I'm weaker than the palest blue / Oh so weak in this need for you."

This Is The Sea
by The Waterboys
(153 plays) | (0 fans)

Looking back on the song in 2017, lead singler Mike Scott isn't impressed. "Melodically, I think it's a very limiting song. My abilities with melodies have improved a lot, have developed a lot since those days, and that song doesn't really make it for me."
