Violent Femmes - Blister In The Sun

[Verse:] When I'm walkin' I strut my stuff, man I'm so strung out
I'm high as a kite I just might stop to check you out

(Chorus)Let me go on like I blister in the sun,
Let me go on big hands I know you're the one

(Verse 2)Body and beats I stain my sheets I don't even know why
My girlfriend she's at the end she is starting to cry

(Chorus)Let me go on like I blister in the sun,
Let me go on big hands I know you're the one...

(Verse 1)When I'm walkin' I strut my stuff, man I'm so strung out
I'm high as a kite I just might stop to check you out

[Verse:] When I'm walkin' I strut my stuff, man I'm so strung out
I'm high as a kite I just might stop to check you out

[Verse 2:] Body and beats I stain my sheets I don't even know why
My girlfriend she's at the end she is starting to cry

[Verse:] When I'm out walkin' I strut my stuff man I'm so strung out
I'm high as a kite I just might stop to check you out

[Chorus:] Let me go on like I blister in the sun
Let me go on big hands I know you're the one

"Blister in the Sun" is a song by American rock band Violent Femmes, originally released on their 1983 self-titled debut album. In 2005, it became the first English-language track to ever be allowed on RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta, the Republic of Ireland Irish-language radio station, after having been selected by listeners for the event. In February 2021, the song was covered by drag queen and singer Trixie Mattel. In media The song was also featured prominently in the 1997 film Grosse Pointe Blank. John Cusack had initially requested an updated version of the song, which led to the band recording a new, slower arrangement that featured saxophones, strings and other instruments. This version of the song was dubbed "Blister 2000." However, Cusack eventually decided he wanted to include the original version of the song as well. Because the original master tapes of the band's debut album had long been disposed of, they decided to record a new version of the original 1983 arrangement. Neither of these rerecorded versions appears in the actual film, although a new music video, directed by Evan Bernard, was created for the new recording of the 1983 arrangement. It features Gordon Gano as a deranged assassin trying to kill Socks the cat in puppet form, interspersed with clips from the film. In August 2007, Gordon Gano was the subject of a lawsuit brought by bassist Brian Ritchie. The lawsuit stems partly from Gano's authorization of the use of "Blister" in a Wendy's commercial. In 2008, the song was featured on a Foster's Lager "Stealing Shadows" advertisement.
