That’s What The Little Girls Do – The Knack (1979) 2011 Remaster

“That’s What The Little Girls Do” was released on The Knack’s debut album, Get The Knack, in late spring 1979. The Knack were/and remain, an extremely underrated act. When this album was released, they were blasted by some who thought they were trying to mock/imitate/whatever The Beatles….yeah, yeah, yeah…the similarities are there in the grooves, the cover art, and the way the presented themselves as a band….but damn, it was all in great fun, and they had the chops to make some really special music!

I was as huge a Beatles fan as there was, and never could understand why some were so down on this band (From Allmusic.com “critics cried “foul” when millions sold after Capitol’s pre-release hype (it went gold in 13 days and eventually sold five million copies, making it one of the most successful debuts in history”)….the second album in particular was ripped to shreds critically…and I love it every bit as much as the first!). I think that the band never fully recovered from the characterization that they had one great song and/or they were ripping off The Beatles (who wasn’t)….they had so many on every album they ever released….great power pop, rockers, and some gorgeous ballads! Anyway, I’ll get of my soapbox now, but if you didn’t listen to The Knack albums, you missed some seriously great music…it’s not too late! 😉

This is one of my favorite songs from the debut (I like them all, of course none can hold up to that MONSTER hook of “My Sharona”….very very few songs can really?!), wanted to do some The Knack, and it was hard to decide, but the theme for this one was easy.

As usual HUGE THANKS to everyone who’s art made this new art possible…..THANK YOU!!!!

[Lyrics]
That’s what the little girls do
To you, to you
Oh, that’s what the little girls do
To you, to you

When you hold her tight
Whisper in the night
Tell her she’s the one
But you’ll never know
Why she wanna’ go and run

That’s what the little girls do
To you, to you
Oh, that’s what the little girls do
To you, to you

Does she tell you lies
Then apologize
Does she make you crawl
When you’re on your knees
Then you’re really not a man at all

That’s what the little girls do
To you, to you
Oh, that’s what the little girls do
To you, to you

And she says she’s sorry
As she looks into your eyes
But you bite your own sorrow
‘Cause she makes you pay the price

She’s the virgin queen
Dancing in your dreams
Yes she plays her part
If you let her go
She will break your ego
And your heart

That’s what the little girls do
To you, to you
Oh, that’s what the little girls do
To you, to you
Yea, that’s what the little girls do
To you, to you
