Song of the Day (The Chain): Dinosaur Jr – Little Fury Things

Day 2. Following on from Teen Age Riot by Sonic Youth, I’ve gone for a fairly obvious link in the chain for the first one. As mentioned yesterday, Teen Age Riot is a song about a parallel world where J Mascis is president. So for day 2, here’s J Mascis himself, with his amazing band, Dinosaur Jr.

Little Fury Things is the opening track from the bands third album (and my personal favourite) You’re Living All Over Me. Regarding that album title, I may be wrong, but I can’t help but think about the scene in 1991: The Year Punk Broke where Murph is telling Thurston Moore that he shaved his hair off because he had headlice & he was sick of them bouncing off the drumskins. Grim.

What is it?
Who is it?
Where is it?

A rabbit falls away from me, I guess I’ll crawl
A rabbit always smashes me, again I’ll crawl
Tried to think what’s over me, it makes me crawl
Then she runs away from me, faster than I crawl

I stopped to call, tried to feel it all
Stuck my hand and pulled real hard, got stretch in miles, not in yards
Then I read about all those who believe all of your lies
Sunlight brings the rage right in your eyes

A rabbit falls away from me, I guess I’ll crawl
A rabbit always smashes me, again I’ll crawl
Tried to think what’s over me, it makes me crawl
Then she runs away from me, faster than I crawl

A rabbit falls away from me, I guess I’ll crawl
A rabbit always smashes me, again I’ll crawl
Tried to think what’s over me, it makes me crawl
Then she runs away from me, faster than I crawl
