I remember driving with my traditional Serbian family in our giant brown Ford conversion van listening to this song. I knew every word as an elementary school student. Oh boy, if my parents only knew what the lyrics meant… If only I knew what the lyrics meant… If only anyone on planet Earth knew what the lyrics meant… I love this song and loved the entire album, Odelay. I give credit to my brother who was a member of the BMG Music Club for buying this for one penny. R.I.P. BMG, another Napster casualty. Here is “Loser”, a perfect song for some pompous Pitchfork reviewer to try and break down the meaning of. Enjoy.
