"Resuscitation" as written by Sheryl Crow and Jeffrey Trott....
Short circulated
Sleeping through the dopamine
When you've got nothing to fear
Too low to notice

Superman in disco jeans
Having a good time
Just wish I was here
Resuscitation

Bring me around
Resuscitation
Bring me down
So separated

Under watergun ballet
When you've got no map
You've got no place to go
Some sexy killjoy

Bring everybody down
Well I eat confusion
And spit it out slow
Resuscitation

Bring you 'round
Resuscitation
Bring you down
The road is paved with hope and glory

But my shoes are hiding under the bed
I need a little evaluation
Rejuvenation
Of soul and head

So underneath
Hanging on the bathroom rug
Holding it together
With rubber bands and chewing gum

This mansion's crashing
I'm just the butler's maid
What do we care
We just need our own parade

Resuscitation
Bring me down
Resuscitation
Bring me 'round

    General CommentSeems like this song is about drug use, and the bad situations drug use brings you to. "Too low to notice Superman in disco jeans, having a good time, just wish I was here." You're just so down and out you notice wack stuff in your head is all in your head, and you're not "all there." I love the third verse: "Hanging on the bathroom rug/Holding it together/With rubber bands and chewing gum," etc. It just seems so desperate and clingy, juxtaposed with the funkiness and quirkiness of the song's sound: so cool.

    General CommentIt's a shame that more people don't know about this song. The only way I was able to obtain it was through buying the soundtrack to "The Faculty". If anyone remembers it, it's probably from seeing that movie. I thought it was well-placed come to think of it. I can't find it anywhere else, and it must have been made in the mid-90s before the movie (or for the movie) before Crow got really big. That's why I think it's so unknown. It also presents a very different style I haven't heard anywhere else in her career. It's so funky, hard rock. I'd love to hear more of stuff like this from her.
