Guided By One Minute Songs.

Last night, I purchased 25 dollars worth of Guided By Voices cds in search of one song I haven’t heard in about 6 or 7 years. I really want it. I can’t even hum it to the clerk (something done quite frequently to me while working in the music shop back in college) because I don’t even remember the tune. I just remember loving it so. I got Alien Lanes and Mag Earwhig!

Neither, of which, have the song I am looking for.

25 bucks ain’t so bad, really. The thing is, most of their songs as many of you may know are like 30 seconds to a minute long. I should have gotten another cd because the total number of minutes don’t add up to what I would have gotten if I had purchased, say, a Sonic Youth c.d. or a live recording of Phish.

Damn, I want that song.

  1. Can you give me any idea of the song? I’ll look on some of my cds.

  2. It’s VERY VERY melodic and poppy. All I know about it is this, I used to listen to it at Supon Design Group with Michael. That means it was out about 6 years ago. Also, it was on a compilation. That doesn’t mean it’s not on one of their cds as well, as I know it was/is. But I only know that the reason I heard it was Michael had some compilation featuring a number of “hip” bands.

    That’s all I know, not very good, eh? And well, it sounds like them. :] Heh.

    PS Rob, every time I hear them, I think of you. Cool, eh?
