Christ! this song.

I got over high saturday night with morocco black stuff and 15 years old whyskey because I was alone but really happy after a rehearsal session with a dear friend of mine. And I played a selection of space evil songs to suit my défonce. Amongst too many Marc Almond pieces, Neu and a fine selection of Frank Black songs (Sir Rockaby, followed by Stupid Me, New house of the Pope and Another Velvet Nightmare) I played Havalina. and I realised what the Pixies were all about. Being away and pleased to think you're away.

Gee, I love you all!

I have to wonder why the title isn't "Javalina."



I was all out of luck, like a duck that died. I was all out of juice, like a moose denied.

"Havalina, the album's closing song, was composed after Charles and his girlfriend were chased by a wild pig in Arizona. 'So he decided to write a real pretty love song. I've been thinking about this...I don't think there's anything innately erotic about pigs. But generally they are sweet, shy, mysterious creatures. Especially the little ones. When they get big, they get kinda gross.'" - Kim Deal in Melody Maker

“But Charles sounded great,” Kim smiles. “He sang like a beauty. It was gorgeous. I was so impressed.”

They were chased by a wild pig? That's a very sweet story, and he turned it into a very beautiful song. Apparently, Havalina is the Mexican name for a wild boar.

A way of walking. Quite high above the ground.

Fearless of looking down.

Skywalk!

Well, I'm much smarter than that. I am a fool who wants to kiss your beautiful face.
