Lyrics on animalcollective.org

Are the lyrics in the lyrics section on this site written up by AC themselves, so they're the correct ones?

  • Well, I know that the AC doesn't run this site. Its just some super great guy. So...i'd assume that they didn't write them up themselves. People can put up comments if they find a lyric to be wrong, so i'd say that they are mostly right, at least.
  • It's hard to find correct lyrics sometimes in my opinion, I trust this one the most because I feel rabid AC fans would come and correct if they knew it was wrong.
  • Agreed, and the My Girls debate is HUGE on here. I still think it's adobe slats, not slabs.
  • I read 'somewhere' (that elusive somewhere that all rabid readers find their trivia) (someone should make a magazine and call it "Somewhere") that the band themselves disagree on lyrics or don't know some of their own lyrics.

(i say slabs, you say slats.)

    but when you google adobe slats, you get actual results. when you google adobe slabs, you get all the AC fans debating the lyrics of My Girls. I think somebody made a similar argument on the lyrics.
  • wait, you said slats for each. which one is the legitimate word?! I think its slats.
  • ^^^ fix'd.
  • Allright, thanks! I printed out the Water Curses EP lyrics and here are some examples are some words I think may be wrong: 'Transparent paper [b]dreams[/b] that float above me while I sleep' I read somewhere eles: 'transparent paper wings'.. which still sounds just as good and I think might be it. 'The color after sunset You'd do anything the [b]drink's at[/b]' What I think it might be: 'You'd do anything to jinx it' 'The crush [b]has come[/b] just like a willow' Possibly: It'll crush your skull just like a willow (?) I don't know. Maybe. Theres a few others but that just water curses.
  • sometimes when I'm singing along to AC I'm just mumbling. Not going to lie. slats makes more sense... maybe I'll ask them at the Q&A at ODDSAC. :O i think it's dreams, because he's talking about them floating whilst he is sleeping. I personally like the words jinx it better... And the crush has come sounds nicer, so I like it better. <!-- s:P --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/razz.gif" alt=":P" title="razz" /><!-- s:P -->
  • one of my favorite things to do is to make sound while Avey sings, it's a lot of fun, as for the exactness of the lyrics, i think it is better to not know, that way you can fill in the spaces with words that mean something to you. ultimately changing the song into something a little more personal
  • For a helluva lot of the songs, I make noises too but sometimes you feel a bit dumb when you're making sounds and then it goes to "bleh ba ba! ....err....ERRR..." or maybe I'm so uncreative I can't even make up sounds, hehe. Really do trust this site the most for lyrics.
  • Stephy, I believe the lyrics often ARE "bleh ba ba!....err....ERR..."
  • ba? BA? at this rate you'll turn into a sheep!
