now playing: how does a duck know?

now playing: how does a duck know?

about: okay so this is a really weird song. i don't really recommend it, but if you want to read the lyrics, they're here. the thing is, i don't really love this song as a song per se, but i do like to listen to it because it takes me back to another time in my life. crash test dummies big hit was mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm; perhaps you rememer it. but i got the album (i think it was 1994 or so) and i listened to it a bunch my freshman year at college. i thought i was pretty cool listening to such avant garde stuff with lyrics like, "How come all my body parts so nicely fit together?All my organs doing their jobs, no help from me!"
anyway, when it comes on the ipod shuffle, it takes me back to another time, when i had left high school and was forging a new identity in a new world for me. so these are good memories. and the song if filled with good questions, too. i mean, how does a duck know what direction south is? is all of life instinct?
