    Haven't read it yet, just saw it... seems to also be about where Dave was at the time, in terms of becoming a celebrity, how his life was changing... and also how Crash REALLY made the band (especially Dave) become famous.

    Of all the “Crash Into Me” memories, though, perhaps the most historically relevant is the one belonging to the album’s producer, Steve Lillywhite, who tells me in a phone conversation from Bali that he was, technically speaking, the first man to bone a gal while a recording of “Crash Into Me” played in the background, though certainly not the last.

    I FEEL SEEN.

    "But the associations that feel even more meaningful are the smaller and more solitary ones: lying in a tent at the base of Maine’s Mt. Katahdin, braces on my teeth and Discman headphones in my ears, playing “Cry Freedom” over and over to drown out the adolescent fumblings of my cooler tentmate and her camp love. Or riding my bike to the Pennington, New Jersey, post office so I could send blank CDs and a self-addressed stamped envelope to a stranger from Usenet who would then mail me back hallowed rips of some old Flood Zone show with a sick version of “Minarets.” Or wishing I were alone as I scrambled to change the dial or at least the subject whenever “Crash Into Me,” that inescapable and voyeuristic and soaring and soothing and sleazy third single from Crash, began imploring the listener—the listener in most cases being tweenaged me sitting in the Volvo passenger seat next to my God-fearing mother, who was also the listener—to “hike up your skirt a little more / and show the world to me.”

    Literally change Maine's Mt Katahdin to Wisconsin's Northwoods, Pennington NJ to Deerfield IL, and mom's Volvo passenger car to living room stereo system and that basically me at 14 years old to perfection.
