“Lover’s Spit” is featured on the band’s 2002 album You Forgot It in People. It, along with “Anthems for a Seventeen Year-Old Girl” are both fan-favorites. The album features complex and experimental musical techniques and a wide range of different instruments. In 2003, the year the album was reissued, it won the Juno Award for Alternative Album of the Year. Sylus Magazine put it in 7th place on their Top 50 Albums: 2000-2005 list.
I first heard this song by listening to Jim Carrey’s (woo hoo!) iTunes celebrity playlist. The man has excellent taste in music by the way. Anyway, this was a song that I immediately liked. I haven’t quite been able to figure out exactly what the song is about, but I’m sure it’s pretty deep. Mind you, the lyrics are suggestive but the song is a great one nevertheless, without the gimmicky lyrics. Many think the song is about meaningless love. That seems about right. See the lyrics here.
