Lost Gem: "Outtasite (Outta Mind)" - Wilco (1996)



"...I know you probably hate me...that's O.K. with me."
~ Wilco ~


Wilco is the always experimenting rootsy alt-rock band from Chicago led by Jeff Tweedy.

"Being There" (1996) is the band's 2nd release...a double album that runs a spectrum of musical influences without losing sight of their roots. The record is a confessional, of sorts, from both listener and musician's point of view.

Lost Gem:--> "Outtasite (Outta Mind)"...is a raucous upbeat banger with a terrific 'whatever' attitude. Guitars and piano spark from the speakers. A splendid time is guaranteed for all.

Have you heard this gem?


I know we don't talk much
but you're but you're such a good talker,
oh-whoa
Well I know we should take a walk
but y'er such a fast walker,
oh-whoa,
well alright
I know where I'll be tonight, alright
Outta mind outta site.

Well O.K., I know you don't love me
but you'll still be thinking of me,
oh-whoa
Well alright, I know you probably hate me,
that's O.K. with me.
alright
Outta mind outta site
Outta mind outta site

You don't see me now
You don't want to anyhow

Look out, here I come again
and I'm bringing my friends
Look out, here I come again,
I'm bringing my friends,
ok alright
ok alright
I know where I'll be tonight, alright
Outta mind outta site.


Good stuff!
