"Our Singer" as written by and S. Kannberg S. Malkmus....
I've been waitin'
Anticipatin'
Sun comes up
The skies won't sink my soul

I've dreamt of this
But is never comes
But it never comes
The risin'

The natures dry
Folk!
I've been dreamin'
Traced out but dreamin'

The sun comes up
The blisters burn my soul
I'm dreamin'
Of something now

Of something now
Of the risin'
The natures dry
And all the groovey ones

    General Commentundynamic? its one of the best songs off of the album, and one of the best closing tracks out of all the albums out there. Dont know about a girl lol, but love the lyrics "Ive dreamt of this, but it never comes". The whole S&E album has this theme of futility and corruption...very fucking 90's.

    General Commentmusically this song is a tribute to/complete ripoff of the fall's "hip priest". the title, i believe, refers to a time where malkmus either spoke to or heard a member of the fall, who didn't refer to mark e. smith (the fall singer) by name, but called him "the singer".

    General Commentthis song is amazing. i think it's one of my favorites of any song ever.

    pretty obvious meaning, sm is too worried to ask a girl out

    General Commentalways thought it was 'and all the groovy ones'. it's a great, clanging, downtempo number to end the-greatest-indie-rock-album-of-all-time.

    My InterpretationSM says fuck. Its a dream he has about being with someone and he can't make the next step. The thing is he is faced to look at it allot, so he says FUCK in his head.

    General CommentI always believed that the title "Our Singer" was a reference to the opening line of Franz Kafka's short story "Josephine the Singer, or the Mouse Folk."

    General Commenthaha, S&E is probably my favorite album of the 90s. Although this is true, i never listen to this song. It seems pointless and undynamic. but eh, has a kinda nice melody
