Recorded live, this cut is what the formaer Catwoman of TV's Batman is all about . The band is at its psuedo-striphouse best and Miss Kitt purrs through the lyrics with tongue firmly in cheek. "I'll be eating pheasant while you're dining with the peasants, dunking do-nuts in a diner without me!" Guess the poor dude knows he ain't gettin' none tonight.

This song breaks my heart every time I hear it. Musically, it's like "Leader of the Pack", but at a snails pace. the thing is that the lyrics and Julee Cruise's delivery are so full of sadness and desire. The feeling grows as the song progresses, especially when the background wail kicks in. It illuminates dark places in the heart. This song is also included on the Twin Peaks sound track.
from Falling Into the Night (Warner Bros. 4-25859), available on CD
From the godfather of filthfy rap comes this FUNKY,slamming tune. It tells the story of trucker with a CB radio(timewarp) who is, in his mind anyway, the baddest bastard around. On his journey he picks up a transvestite hooker, masterbates, has a fight with the Grand Dragon of the klu klux klan, claims to be related to Mohammed Ali, and drinks a bottle of wine. The killer rhyme is "We got to the room, pulled off her clothes, and the funk from her p***y started f**king with my nose." If you don't mind that sort of talk, you'll love this cut.
The fabulous Ms. Kitt pours out her heart on this track in a way not usually heard in her songs. She puts away the diva and brings out the tender and emotional woman within as she sings of witnessing a budding romance between two people only to reveal at the end that one of them is her man whom she saw with another woman.
15 Mar 03 ·konsu: Alright then... I'll say somethin' ! People who know their "Math Rock" talk about Slint as the first group that really nailed the sound. But pigeonholes aside, this is the best tune from their debut LP, and it has one of the spookiest grooves you'll ever hear. The bass line is dissonant and beguiling in it's girth, one I tried to imitate, but never was successful. These guys used to be in Squirrel Bait I believe(?) Also the drummer played on the kick ass first Breeders LP, "Pod"...Gettin' harder to find too...
