Song #34 On My MP3 Player - Bird Dream of The Olympus Mons by the Pixies

'Bird Dream of the Olympus Mons' is the ninth track on the Pixies' 1991 album titled Trompe le Monde. This is a song about a bird that dreams of flying to the Olympus Mons, a volcano on Mars that is three times the size of Mt. Everest.

Trompe le Monde is a personal favorite. I first heard the album in 1992 when someone was playing 'Planet of Sound'. I had to know more about that band and grabbed a copy of Trompe le Monde. 'Bird Dream of the Olympus Mons' is a great song, and I wish I could say something really interesting about this song, but it is Friday and I'm thinking about the weekend. Just listen to the song.
