listen to On Fire and pretend someone could love you listen to Lady Day and dream they knew the half of it listen to Birthday and pretend someone could love you listen to Nick Drake and dream they knew the half of it
I'm assuming the "On Fire" being referenced is the Galaxie 500 album, but is "Lady Day" the Billie Holiday album, or the Lou Reed song? And what is "Birthday"? The Beatles song? Thoughts?
Funny, the first time I heard Xiu Xiu they immediately reminded me [glow=red,2,300]a lot[/glow] of The Birthday Party but with more unconventional rock instruments. When I read that lyric I just assumed it was a reference to The Birthday Party.
