the last part of this song may well be the best thing he has ever written
of course that is up for debate!

but it is to me , the best expression of love put to music.

My favourite FB song, including The Pixies. Amazing.

The whole romaunt section of the song is superb. Also one of my favourites although the first couple times I listened to Teenager I remember thinking it was two songs (because I really liked the second part / "song" but wasn't a fan of the first). Now of course, I love it all.

Mouth intricate shapes the voice that speaks.."

Pretty chilled tempo. I'm sure there's a Catholic version or two out there somewhere too

Regarding Speedy Marie, vintage Frank Black
I think most if not all of us agree on this

He played it live in a November '98 show at the now-defunct Fabulous Foothill in Long Beach, CA with the Catholics. It was bliss.

All of me does.

A few tracks don't agree with my left elbow, but Speedy isn't one.

Used to like it a lot, less so these days but that's probably because I played the hell out of it back in the day. Still a great song, obviously.

Sir Rockaby and Calistan are probably the two TOTY songs that I'll never ever tire of, not even once in a while.

I love this song for the way he sings the word "juxtaposed." Nobody sings the word "juxtaposed" like Frank Black.
