"Creme Brulee" as written by Kim Gordon, Lee M. Ranaldo, Steven Jay Shelley and Thurston Joseph Moore....
Aaaah-oooo!
Whooo!
Ha!
Ha!

Riding down the road it nearly struck me blind
You and me are burning in the summertime
Let's go find some shady ground
Gotta get rid of that king hell frown
You and me burning in the summertime
You and me burning in the summertime

Scrape, scrape, scrapin' melted cheese
Say I love you, later please
You and me burning in the summertime
You and me burning in the summertime

Dark spots floating in front of my eyes
Mum said she turned it on them squattin' flies
You and me burning in the summertime
You and me burning in the summertime

Last night I dreamed I kissed Neil Young
If I was a boy I guess it would be fun
You and me burning in the summertime
You and me burning in the summertime

Don't you know a city where the horses grow?
Green moths hanging, chillin' crows
You and me burning in the summertime
You and me burning in the summertime

I said it before and I'll say it again
"I'm so happy we're just friends"

    General CommentI have a friend with whom I have listened to Sonic Youth for years, and this songs has been theme of conversation a lot of times. We've talked about that disappointing moments in life when one of us had a crush on some girl, and when things were looking good... she came out with that line: "I'm so happy, we're just friends".

    From those years on, we referred to that situation as "She did a Creme Brulee to you!". Argh!

    General CommentThis song is hilarious. I have a good friend whom I often share creme brulee with, and I thought it might be charming to throw this on one of her mixes. Alas, the last line ruins it: I'd like something more than that. Nonetheless, Kim sort of embodies the ambiguity in male / female relationships. While the verses are relatively nonsensical, the repeating line is certainly loaded with meaning, suggesting a couple that is hooking up, perhaps outside of some natural boundaries, in a situation that can't possibly last. There's irony in the last line, then, but it's bitter and, though she delivers it with aplomb, sort of sad.

    General CommentI love how it sounds all sexy, and then she intentionally ruins it.
    The weirder lines are to me the awkward small talk the characters are making.

    General CommentI love the quiet seductive tone Kim sings this in, it's such a dirty sexy song and then at the end... ruins it with the friend thing. It's like a hormonal flare-up at someone who you arent attracted to. :p and I love the Neil Young line xD
