If I watch “The Colbert Report” it’s always the following night after the episode aired, there’s just something too potent about Stephen, I can’t watch him “live.” So I missed Stephen Malkmus and Pavement on the show last night performing what Pitchfork called the “Best Song of the 1990’s.”
That bold statement was said of the song “Gold Soundz” off of “Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain” released in 1994. I’m not sure I’d give the title to that song in particular, but the award should indeed go to Pavement. I think you can tell by the boyish grin on Stephen’s face that he agrees. It’s certainly the perfect song for 90’s nostalgia.
Sing along! So drunk in the August sun / And you’re the kind of girl I like / Because you’re empty and I’m empty / And you can never quarantine the past.
