okay, maybe everyone already figured this out, but i just realized it listening to dirty deluxe vinyl last night. maybe it even says so in the liners, i didn't re-read 'em to see.

"cindy" is definitely more developed, but you can hear the "cindy" riffs in "poet"...

thurston's recycling methods at work

p.s. really digging the 33&1/3 book on daydream so far, but i havn't got to the lyrical misinterpretations though. maybe it's not so bad; T is into some misinterpretation himself (bark haze/barkays)...

To say that any Sonic Youth track is in a key is a stretch. As I see it, anyway.

The first song referencing Cindy Crawford is
Prince Rogers Nelson's "Cindy C." from the (for most part) unreleased lp (the most bootlegged album of all-time), The Black Album, in 1987 (when few had even heard of Cindy Crawford). The bootleg cd appeared in 1994, when Cindy Crawford was at the height of her supermodel fame and perhaps inspired Thurston Moore to write "Cindy (Rotten Tanx)." As notated in this thread, the working title of which was "Poet in the Pit." By 1995, however, Thurston had the new lyrics in place and recorded the song for his first proper solo album, Psychic Hearts.

If you'll notice, Thurston also sings about "drivin' by in my phatmobile"
(as opposed to "batmobile").
Prince, of course, did the Batman soundtrack in 1989.
