Well, I've seen everything that there is to see.
And I've heard everything that they've have to say...
And I've done everything that I wanted to do...
I've done that too.

And it ain't that pretty at all.
Ain't that pretty at all.
Gonna to throw myself against the wall
'Cause I'd rather feel bad than not feel anything at all.

I just came back from a short vacation, Jordan,
Goin' down the Erie Love Canal.
Oh, how'd you like it Kimmy?
Well, it ain't that pretty at all.

No it ain't that pretty at all.
It ain't that pretty at all.
So I'm going to throw myself against the wall.
'Cause I'd rather feel bad than not feel anything at all.

Gonna get a good running start, gonna throw myself at the wall, oh here I come! Ahhhhhh!!!

I've been to Paris .
And it ain't that pretty at all .
I've been to Rome.
Hey guess what?
I'm gonna throw myself against the wall down at the Louvre Museum in Paris, France! I'm gonna throw myself against the wall 'cause I'd rather feel bad than not feel anything at all!

'Cause it ain't that pretty at all
It ain't that pretty at all. [x8]

    This is the newest song by the Pixies, though it's not really a remake, Charles really refuses to remake a song. When Frank sings, he makes up the words as he goes, and Kim made up some of her own. When Frank makes up his own lyrics randomly, you can here Kim's chuckles of laughter in the background. The song was "Pixized" and it now has the sound of the Pixies, you shan't be disappointed with this one.

    'Pixized' or Pixilated? Anyway, this song is pretty great.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,
