Exceptional Audio: Post-modern Sleaze – Sneaker Pimps

Well then, this. 

Becoming X is one of the best albums to come out of the 90’s. Go ahead and flame me, I know there was a lot of amazing music in the 90’s. This should be included.

Unfortunately most people were only exposed to Six Underground, the overplayed single off the album. I’m not saying that’s a bad song, it’s not, but the album had many other genius strokes on it, including this. 

The imagery is excellent, so much so that I use it as reference material for some pieces of my book. 

She looks ahead, she paints her toe nails red,
She’s wet and wild, a typical 90’s child,

She makes every move they make,
She takes everything they take,
She must be a thelma or louise,
She must be a post-modern sleaze

Unscrew the wine, she’ll throw a party line,
Stories extreme, she’s such a drama queen,
Cries through the night, she choked on marlboro lites,
Pure charm and grace, she hates her pretty face,

She makes every move they make,
She takes everything they take,
She must be a thelma or louise,
She must be a post-modern sleaze

Straw spun from gold, she craves a tortured soul,
All doom and gloom, she plays an open wound,

She takes every scene they steal,
She takes every pain they feel,
She must be a thelma or louise,
She must be a post-modern sleaze
