hope everything is alright hope everything is alright
what's that floating in the water
oh neptune's only daughter
i believe
in mr. grieves
pray for a man in the middle
one that talks like doolittle
i believe
in mr. grieves
do you have another opinion
do you have another opinion
la la la la la la la la
la la la la la la la la
got bombed got frozen
got finally off to a finally dozing
i believe
in mr. grieves
do you have another opinion
opinion
do you have another opinion
do you have another opinion
you can cry you can mope
but can you swing from a good rope
oh i believe
in mr. grieves
hope everything is alright
hope everything is alright

    General CommentSuch a good cover, much more different than the original. Was expecting something completely different, but came out pleased. :)

    General CommentTV on the Radio is the only band I can think of that could pull off a Pixies cover. I like it a lot.

    General CommentThe best covers are the ones that don't try to just do the same thing as the original, but make it their own. To transcend is probably the ultimate goal of a cover song. TVOTR didn't transcend the original, I don't think, but they definitely made it their own.

    One thing is for sure: Pixies couldn't do it like TVOTR just like TVOTR couldn't do it like Pixies.

    General CommentI love the Pixies, however TVOTR are sweetly intelligent. I find this cover quite freaky, I like that. "yo can cry,you can mope;but can you swing from a good rope?" Ah, yes.

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite band's best songs. That guitar riff (the one that sounds like the "la la la la")
    is undefeated. Oh, and everyone needs to shut the fuck up about the stupid cover.
