This is the very first song that Neko Case ever wrote all by herself. I know this because that's what she says on the Austin City Limits performance. She's got a one in a million voice and I don't care what genre of music you're into, her talent is undeniable. I even named my cat after her. Of course, when Neko was a kitten, the vet tech told me he was a girl. I almost named him Lucy (Shakedown on 9th Street by Ryan Adams - check it out). Then at the next visit after he was named, the vet thought he had a very masculine face for a girl and in fact, was a boy. As it turned out, he just had really small testicles. Everything worked out in the end because Neko means cat in Japanese, or so I'm told.
