Stuff I like (all)
- John Freeman:I believe 'Rattlesnake' recalls a true story. Just how close did you get to the snake and why were you naked?Annie Clark:It was terrifying. The snake was probably five feet from me. The song is actually very literal – there is no flowery language or embellishment of the story. This is what happened – I was walking along in the Texan desert and decided to take my clothes off because it felt really free and there was no one around for miles and miles, and all of a sudden I heard a rattle and saw the snake out of the corner of my eye. I took off and ran back many miles to the house.
