Radio XLVIII, side A, track 3: “Pictures Of Matchstick Men” by Camper Van Beethoven

Camper Van Beethoven - Pictures of Matchstick MenOh, Camper Van Beethoven, I had no idea that this was a remake when I heard this on the “Hot New Music Hour”.  Alls I knew was that I’d never heard a violin sound so cool.  Honestly, that’s about all I have to say about this song.  I have no idea what it’s about.  All I know is that it’s still as awesome now as it was when I first heard it all those Sundays ago.  Also, my friends are big fans of you, and they’re really hip and cool, so that means I am as well, right?  Right?

Hello?

“Pictures Of Matchstick Men”

<awesome Camper Van Beethoven jam>

When I look up to the sky
I see yo eyes
A funny kind of yellow

Rush home to bed
I soak my head
I see yo face
Underneath my pillow

I woke next morning
Tired, still yawning
See yo face
Looking through my window

<awesome Camper Van Beethoven jam>

Pic-tures of matchstick men and yoo-oo

Images of matchstick men and yoo-oo

Alls I ever see is them and you

<awesome Camper Van Beethoven jam>

Windows echo yo reflection
When I look in
Their direction now

There ya face is haunting me
Yo face just won’t
Leave
Me
Alone

Pic-tures of matchstick men and yoo-oo
Images of matchstick men and you

All I ever see is them and you
Yo in the sky
Yo with the sky
You make men cry
You are
Yoou’re in the sky
You’re with the sky
You make men cry

<awesome Camper Van Beethoven jam>

Pic-tures of matchstick men
Pic-tures of matchstick men
Pic-tures of matchstick men
Pic-tures of matchstick men
Pic-tures of matchstick men
Pic-tures of matchstick men
Pic-tures of matchstick men
Pic-tures of matchstick men

  3. […]  Seriously, Eric Clapton, we’ve already had crazy good new music by The Cure, Tom Petty, Camper Van Beethoven, and Janet Jackson, and now here you were with a brand new song, too!  Not only that, but […]
