So Nick and I were talking on IM about Ratatat today:
ydnar: So we’re riding up back from LA, listening to Ratatat
ydnar: and I could have sworn it had lyrics.
ydnar: Tina commented that it didn’t. I swore I’d heard some
ydnar: Guess the song form is trad rock, so I was imagining them.
Nick O’Neill: It has some samples in it.
Nick O’Neill: I definitely would expect it to have lyrics as well.
ydnar: So we started making shit up. Not lyrics per se, but stuff like “this song totally has a brit pop vocalist whining about his ex-girlfriend.”
Nick O’Neill: And I’m sure it would be true if either of those guys could sing.
