    Just listened to this again and was blown away by Britt's vocals. One of his top five performances, IMO. I especially love the part where he sings, "Because I need to/I love to/I'm down/And that's a wet piece of wood for the fire tonight." The guitar "solo" is totally badass as well.

    LOVE love love this song. I have three versions (two by "Drake Tungsten" and the one on A Series of Sneaks) and it's really cool to see the evolution from basically a demo version to a polished song.

    Huh. I don't remember the Drake Tungsten version. I'll have to scour my hard drive for the "Six Pence" EP and check it out. Seriously though, great song.

    Yeah, I'm also quite fond of this song. The song structure always throws me off a little bit too because there's no repetition of parts. Basically, there are two verses that follow completely different patterns, a "chorus" that only happens once, and the sweet instrumental ending.

    One of Spoon's top-five EP cuts for me.

    this track isnt on the canadian version of sos. its been replaced by the laffitte single (also fine tracks). i could be underground is an amazing track tho. i agree about the vocal delivery. hairs up on the back of the neck stuff. sos is an amazing album. try telling that to a major lable who wouldnt know a good thing if it bit them in the ass.

    i could be underground is on the american reissue, as is revenge. miss revolution may be drunk but she is right. i`m a sad anal kind of idiot who has three alternative versions of this album, cos i dont have the 30 gallon tank ep or the laffitte single (sob).

    I think the copy I have is actually listed as Series of Sneaks (Bonus Disc), but whatever. And by the way, love the nickname you gave me! Miss Revolution is a pretty killer forum handle if I do say so myself.

    Look in your media player and see if there are any other tracks on the Series of Sneaks Bonus disc, I'm curious. I've never heard of a SOS bonus disk.

    Even on Pete's discography there isn't anything about a Series of Sneaks bonus disc

    No idea. Googling the lyrics didn't come up with anything.

    Hey, I saw a video for this song on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QP9PuvZYeRI

    Is this the actual video by the band? The person who posted it says it was from the Spoon website a while back.

    Looks like something they would do.

    I thought Shake It Off was on the Anything You Want single. I always thought it was a Girls Can Tell outtake.
