KIM…You “Levitate Me”!

Been listening to a lot of Pixies lately. This past 2 weeks to be exact. It’s just inexplicable of how the urge to dig out your old CDs and start listening to them one by one, all over again. To say that I’m thinking of my past… Nah!…’cause Pixies had never been in my OST* of life. From my opinion, OST of life should be very relevant to one’s life, lyrically. So as of today, The Smiths and Moz are still on top of the list. Please don’t ask why…


Hmmm…why Pixies? Their lyrics are not so relevant (to me) and given me less meaning (this might be due to the eccentricity of Black Francis’ lyrics) but I never in a second, doubt the contagious chorus hook and the brilliance of their songs/music executions. Label them with whatever music genre you might, but I will simply classify it as “The Pixies”. Their sound is their own…

I’m still wondering of the rationale on getting Pixies to my recent playlist. There must be a reason. A good reason. First I played the “Doolittle”, then “Bossanova” followed by “Trompe Le Monde”. Then back to “Doolittle” all over again. I misplaced “Come On Pilgrims” and “Surfer Rosa”. Or maybe someone borrowed them from me and forgot to return back. If it’s true and you happen to read this then you should know what to do… shithead!

I listened to them hard…very hard. And all of a sudden, it’s beginning to make sense. The reason is just so apparent, yet I was late to realize. I was actually missing a VOICE. It was that voice that was so mesmerizing, it sang in my head and reminded me of how much I actually miss HER…

Yes. I miss her dearly. That’s the reason I keep on playing and listening to Pixies these passing weeks. I have no collection of The Amps or Breeders. Pixies is all I got. Eventhough I have to listen to Frank (no offence Frank!) in between her voices, still it has not daunt my determination to patiently wait her turn for the mic.

True! It’s not Mariah or Celine or Siti Nurhaliza kinda voice. But she’s just fine and dazzling in her own way. She need not change even a bit of how she sing it before. It was beautiful and tantalizing and I will always love it. Her voice gives me the courage to walk through this world which is no different than the “Waves Of Mutilation”. It makes me feel “Gigantic” and invincible. It also makes me feel like, every morning and every day, I'll ‘bossanova’ with ya!!!

By the way, Happy Birthday to you! I know that it’s too early** for that but just wanna be the first to wish you.

Go slow on the cigarettes Kim...

Most of the time I cannot differentiate between her voice and Black Francis'. It's like the high pitch of Frank's becomes the voice of Kim. Weird...

Whatever it is, I agree with you. She's an indie rock auntie that really rock my world.
