Riff: Spoon – “Let Me Be Mine”

Aug 5, 2014

You’re gonna take another chunk of me with you when you go/Go ahead and take another chunk of me, yeah, just go/Mmhmm, just go

from Let Me Be Mine lyrics by Spoon

If there was any doubt as to what drives the album consider the matter closed. At this point it seems like for Spoon all that they saw at one point were hands of all sizes, colors and shapes, reaching for them. A bit self-involved but what would an album be without a bit of narcissism. They’ve earned it.
