Radio XII, side A, track 6: “Crash” by Primitives

Oh, Primitives, this song was a happy surprise for me, because I’d forgotten all about you and ended up falling in love with you twice.  You see, back in college, there were a few CDs that I listened to constantly.  One of them was the soundtrack to “Dumb and Dumber” (which is a really great soundtrack, that’s why I listened to it).  And on that soundtrack was a song called “Crash” that I absolutely adored and loved to sing along to.  I’ve listened to that CD so many times, Primitives, and sang along to the lyrics of this song just as many times.  And then, as I was converting my tapes for this here blog, this song started playing and I realized that I’d fallen in love with you long before college, back when you were shiny and new.  And for whatever reason, your song fell off my radar, but thanks to a movie about two stupid guys, I got to fall in love with you twice.  And don’t worry, Primitives, I won’t forget this time.  And if they end up making that “Dumb and Dumber” sequel, who knows what other treasures I might rediscover?

“Crash”

You go
Way too fast
Don’t slow down, you’re gonna crash
You should watch
Watch your stay here
Don’t look out, gonna break your neck
So shut
Shut your mouth
‘Cause I’m not listening anyhow
I’ve had enough, enough of you
Enough to last a life time through
So what
Do you want of me
Got no words of sympathy

And if
I go
Around with you
You know that I’ll get messed up, too, with you

Na na na na na, na na na na naa-aaa

Na na na na na, na na na na naa-aaa

You go
Way too fast
Don’t slow down you’re gonna crash
You don’t know what’s been goin’ down
You’ve been runnin’ all over town
So shut
Shut your mouth
‘Cause I’m not listenin’ anyhow
I’ve had enough
Enough of you
Enough to last a life time through
So what
Do you want of me
Got no cure for misery
And if
I go
Around with you
Y’know that I’ll get messed up, too, with you

With you
With you

Na na na na na, na na na na naa-aaa
(Slow down) You’re gonna crash
Na na na na na, na na na na naa-aaa
(Slow down) You’re gonna crash
Na na na na na, na na na na naa-aaa
(Slow down) You’re gonna crash
Na na na na na, na na na na naa-aaa
(Slow down) You’re gonna crash
Na na na na na, na na na na naa-aaa
(Slow down) You’re gonna crash
Na na na na na, na na na na naa-aaa
(Slow down) You’re gonna crash
Na na na na na, na na na na naa-aaa
(Slow down) You’re gonna crash
