Warped minds think alike, I guess. That’s exactly the song I was thinking of posting next. There are plenty of Super Furry Animal songs to play, though. Funny thing is I wanted to like this band even before I heard them because of the name. Then I heard Hello Sunshine, and was hooked.

Today I’m actually going to play another song from Dark Days/Light Years. So far that seems like a really good album. I think I’m going to have to buy a copy. This is a song called MT. Check out a few of the lyrics.

I wasn’t looking for a mountain
There was the mountain
It was a big fucking mountain
So I climbed the mountain
It was no ordinary mountain
It was a strange-looking mountain
But when I got to the top it was two foot tall
It was oh so small

Wonderful use of background music to support an already hypnotic tune, too. And there’s a nice surreal flavor I always enjoy. Reminds me of Donovan’s There Is A Mountain in a way, actually.

Rated not worksafe for being about a big fucking mountain.
