Sonic Youth, inspired lots of what we hear now , love it always will , check out all there music it varies from album to album but always great music and song writing
Wow I feel like an idiot now. I had no idea that this song is by Sonic Youth.
She's washing and drying and fixing her hair... Listen to bull in the heather.. equally amazing
This song is amazing...Fi r s t song ever heard by Sonic Youth.
Such a beautiful song. One of my faves by Sonic Youth
This song is painful...
Yep definitely like dinosaur jr which of course is great
This sounds cool ^__^
lovely!
Sonic youth, your bombardment of noise is always welcome.
Just an amazing song and lyrics ! (:
this song sounds exactly like the New Order song that just played
I like bands that never repeat a word more than once.
cool tune
beautiful:)
absolutely amazing.
Yeah Sonic Youth is great. "Murry Street" and "Sonic Nurse" both very chill albums to chill to.
So good...

The guitar parts in this songs are like magic...You know these's a simple explanation but yet you are still amazed...I love it...
Oh, but I forgot to mention I like ol' Thurston Howell there. I like his reedy frail voice. He's the best part of Gilligan's Sonic Youth Island for sure.
I discovered Sonic Youth when "Goo" came out...loved Cool Thing.

NOW I HATE THAT GIRL'S VOICE. Too many imitators which means we have a load of robot chick singers, programmed to think that singing forever off key and flat with posuer non-chalance is somehow the epitomy of indie, when instead it is now overutilized and fully chiche'. Also, the lyrics of Cool Thing are so psuedo college want-to-be intellectual hipster...gr o s s . Almost as bad as using "copacetic" in a song lyric. LAME.
This is the one that got me into Sonic Youth, special place in my heart.

great track!
I ripped your heart out from your chest.
Replaced it with a grenade blast.

The firefighters hose me down
but I don't care, I'll burn out anyhow.
It's four-alarm girl, nothing to see.
I hear the sirens come for me.

You doused my soul with gasoline.
You flicked a match into my brain.

The firefighters are so nice
but I remember you so cold as ice.
The flames are licking at your feet.
The sirens come to put me out of misery.

You wave your torch into my eyes.
Flamethrower lover burning mind.
Sonic Youth's best song since Teenage Riot.
this is one of fav songs ever!!
just when you think they leave or have nothing left... then they pull a jem out of their a**. love it
kfrye11
