earworm of the day: where is my mind

Where Is My Mind? (A Tribute to The Pixies)
i have never been a pixies fan but i must concede, they write a catchy song.

where is my mind on glue factory records was one of the first commercially successful emo compilations as far as i am aware. it was a strange mix of artists but had a good solid core with bands like braid, get up kids and the promise ring.

the stand out favourites for me were the nada surf cover of where is my mind followed closely by the siren six's cover of holiday song. absolute magic on both counts.

even if you're not a pixies fan you might want to check this album out. there are enough curves thrown at the original material to suit most tastes and several straight covers for purists.
