Let’s See What The Future Brings
I suppose you could take “Your Favorite Thing” as being a kinda dark song about romantic obsession, but I never want to. Bob Mould’s melody and vocals signal pure intentions, and if there is any negative side to this unrequited passion, it is entirely in the possibility that this love will only be real in the singer’s mind. There are some lines that suggest that he knows he’s being a little crazy, but he’s too overwhelmed with the very thought of the object of his affection to care. Mould’s guitar tone in this period is amazing – basic alt-rock in some ways, but overpowering in its weight and attack. It’s perfect for a song like this, conveying a touch of lightness in the lead parts while blasting your head off with volume.
