"Outtasite (Outta Mind)" as written by and Jeffrey Scott Tweedy....
I know we don't talk much but you're but you're such a good talker,
Well I know we should take a walk but y'er such a fast walker, oh-whoa,
well alright
I know where I'll be tonight, alright
Outta mind outta site
Well O.K., I know you don't love me but you'll still be thinking of me,

Well alright, I know you probably hate me, that's O.K. with me, alright
Outta mind outta site
Outta mind outta site
You don't see me now
You don't want to anyhow
Look out, here I come again and I'm bringing my friends
Look out, here I come again, I'm bringing my friends, o.k. alright o.k.
alright

I know where I'll be tonight, alright
Outta mind outta site
Outta mind outta si-ite
Outta mind outta si-i-i-ite

    General Comment"Out of sight, out of mind" is the cliche - if you're away from something/someone for a while, even something/someone you used to love, it's easy to stop thinking of them. At least that's the theory.

    But Wilco, being Wilco, switches it around. It's easy to not see what's right in front of you if you're not thinking about it, or don't expect it to be there.

    General CommentI love the music video with the skydiving. Everything about it is so 90s.

    General CommentI think this song is about a guy who's relationship with his girlfriend or wife is breaking down. They don't talk much, they don't go on walks much... And then the guy says, "I know where I'll be tonight..." and where will he be? "Outta Mind". Out of his mind (drunk, drugs, etc.) Imagine the guy hiding down in his man-cave boozing it up while his wife is upstairs doing her thing. Then at the end he says, "Here I come again, I'm bringing my friends," like, now he's got his buddies down there too. Whee!

    My InterpretationHah. Yeah, girl rejected him, but is is totally overconfident and doesn't let their lack of a future get in the way of their perfect future.
    He knows she hates him but still has it against her that she'll be thinking of him.
    When he says Outta mind Outta sight, he's pretty much saying yeah suure I'll leave you alone ;D

    MemoryI can relate to this song perfectly. I liked this girl, and I think she liked me back, but nothing ever happened between us. Over winter break I didn't talk to her nor communicate with her. I stopped liking her, and I was at peace, finally! Haha, I wasn't worrying or thinking about this girl.

    Except, now, I feel it again, and, I think she does too. Wish me luck. :]
