Pixies – Where is My Mind?

A blimmin’ awesome song from a blimmin’ awesome band, and highly appropriate to my recent posts.

If you don’t listen to Pixies (and it seems an alarming number of people in my life don’t) then seriously, you’re missing out. As well as being superb in their own right I find that every time I listen to them I can hear so many of the bands that came after (I can hear Eels in this one, and Nirvana in most of them). Their impact continues to be huge.

Where Is My Mind?

Pixies

Whooo-ooh
Stop

Whoo-oooh, whoo-oooh
Whoo-oooh, whoo-oooh

With your feet on the air and your head on the ground (whoo-oooh)
Try this trick and spin it, (yeah) yeah (whoo-oooh)
Your head will collapse (whoo-oooh)
If there’s nothing in it and you’ll ask yourself

Where is my mind? Where is my mind? Whhere is my mind?
(Where is my mind? Where is my mind? Where is my mind?)

Wayy out in the water, see it swimmin’

I was swimmin’ in the Caribbean (whoo-oooh)
Animals were hidin’ behind the rock (whoo-oooh)
Except for little fish (whoo-oooh)
Bumped into me, swear he was trying to talk to me coy koi

Where is my mind? (Where is my mind?)
Where is my mind? (Where is my mind?)
Where is my mind? (Where is my mind? Where is my mind? Where is my mind?)
Way out in the water, see it swimmin’

With your feet on the air and your head on the ground (whoo-oooh)
Try this trick and spin it, yeah (whoo-oooh)
Your head will collapse (whoo-oooh)
If there’s nothing in it and you’ll ask yourself

Where is my mind? (Where is my mind?)
Where is my mind? Where is my mind?

(Where is my mind? Where is my mind? Where is my mind?)
Way out in the water, I see it swimmin’

(Whoo-oooh)

Yeah, our feet on the air and our heads on the ground (whoo-oooh)
Try this trick and spin it, yeah (whoo-oooh)
Our heads will collapse (whoo-oooh)

If there’s nothing in it and we’ll ask ourselves (whoo-oooh)

(Whoo-oooh)
