This is 1 of 2 songs from their debut album Nothing's Shocking on the playlist. Its the title sequence for the novel, setting the tone with lots of reverb and wailing voices and the repeated word so important in the novel, "Home." The back and forth of the voices from a nursery rhyme utterance to howls sets the tone perfectly. Welcome to Lobstah Cove!
TRACK 2 – Summer by Buffalo Tom
After the "theme" we open with Boston's own Buffalo Tom with their anthem to angst under the sun. It begins, "Sight unseen, fantasies, summer song sung all along, dragged across the seven seas, to the beach, come follow me..." So the first tale of Lobster Cove begins. "wipe it off my hands, write it in the sand" Tyler will soon learn what that means. It has all the elements of the book referenced in the lyrics. The chorus, "Summer's gone, and summers all you wasted everyday" I think in that is the seed of the series, the doldrums of summer when you are a kid, oblivious to the adventures waiting around every corner.
