Every time we go to a Reds game and Jay Bruce steps up to bat, I get SO PSYCHED because I think The Pixies are his at-bat music.
And then this kid comes in singing “I been workin’ all night, man…” and as my glee subsides and I realize it’s just a Pixies sample, I just feel very, very old. Because this kid who’s singing about working so hard over Kim Deal’s “whooooooo”s was born in 1987, the year before “Where Is My Mind” came out.
Which makes that song to him the equivalent of “Hotel California” to me.
(And “Hotel California” to Sammy Adams is the equivalent of “Strawberry Fields Forever” to me.)
