Song of the Day, April 30: Mood to Burn Bridges by Neko Case and Her Boyfriends

CaseMoodToday’s song is Mood to Burn Bridges by Neko Case. It appears on her second album, Furnace Room Lullaby, the last to include credit to “Her Boyfriends” on the label. It’s a scathing indictment of snoops, gossips, and busybodies, warning them that Case is perfectly happy leave them all behind.

So if you want moral advice
I suggest you just tuck it all away
‘Cause my mood to burn bridges
Parallels my mood to dig ditches
Don’t cross me on either day

She rips through the vocal in high style as the band rush to keep up with her. The intensity is just right wrapping up in short order and making the point crystal clear.

Enjoy this brilliant kiss-off statement today.
