Listen to the girl
As she takes on half the world
Moving up and so alive
In her honey dripping beehive
Beehive
It's good, so good, it's so good
So good

Walking back to you
Is the hardest thing that
I can do
That I can do for you
For you

I'll be your plastic toy
I'll be your plastic toy
For you

Eating up the scum
Is the hardest thing for
Me to do

Just like honey
Just like honey
Just like honey
Just like honey
Just like honey
Just like honey
Just like honey
Just like honey
Just like honey
Just like honey
Just like honey
Just like honey
Just like honey
Just like honey
Just like honey
Just like honey
(Just like honey)

    General Commentsay what you will about the movie and/or its accompanying soundtrack, but 'lost in translation' introduced me to a pair of amazing songs, and led me to love the bands they were created by as well. the two killer tracks i'm referring to are: "sometimes" by my bloody valentine and "just like honey" by the jesus and mary chain. don't get me wrong, i love the rest of the soundtrack as well, but to my ears these are clearly the outstanding tracks.

    and just as in the "sometimes" song thread, there are a few people here who are for some reason miffed by the fact that a film introduced other people to a song they like. maybe i'm wrong, but i have always been under the impression that most bands want their music to be heard by as many people as possible. plus, i would be willing to bet that just about everyone who visits this site has come to love a song as a result of being introduced to it from its inclusion in a film.

    enough about this song's pop culture status, though. what ultimately makes most people like "just like honey" is the way it sounds. and what a great sound it is. if i had to characterize it, i would say that it is the aural equivalent of a euphoric haze from a morphine drip. also, the song's title is very appropriate in that it describes the sound fairly accurately: the simplistic, down-tempo drum pattern gives the song a funereal pace, and the feedback treatment on the guitars makes the reverberating notes seem like they are languidly cascading along, causing the song to flow just like honey.

    finally, i won't try to deconstruct this song lyrically, but i will say that, just like most any other artistic endeavor, this song is not simply about one thing. could you convince me that this song has sexual overtones? sure. but i think to say that this song is about oral sex would be totally amiss. true, there are songs out there that are completely one-dimensional, but most songs are abstract and multifaceted--they're meant to be interpreted in a variety of different ways. so just as 'the godfather' is about more than just the mafia, this song is about more than just oral sex.
