Because we love ‘em all. Here’s your 90’s Video of the Day
The Presidents of the USA - Lump
This trio never intended you to think too hard about them or their lyrics, but we all wracked our brains over what on earth they meant by a girl who is “Lump.” At their core, they just wanted to entertain you and give you a good time so if you think you’re going to find deep profound allegories in any of their songs, well, you’re just wrong.
From a 1996 article in the Sun Sentinel, here is the answer on “Lump” from writer Chris Ballew, ”I just make the stuff up," he says. "That's the magic of writing songs, you don't really have to explain.” Additionally, this quote sums Chris up in a nutshell: “If I were a painter, I would paint pictures of bugs and spiders driving around in cars.”
I’d probably buy that art.
The video here plays off the non-sensical lyrics made up of fun words to say like “buggy marsh,” and puts the band performing in a swamp. It was directed by Elliott Bay and there’s even another version of it that’s a little less quirky if you search for “Lump 2.”
