When I first heard the song off the live bootleg in 2013 I was very excited by the song and the lyrics. As an avid Marijuana smoker and Panda Bear fan, The song resonated perfectly with me. Later in the year another bootleg surfaced. This time the words changed from “marijuana makes my day” to “Don’t you wanna make my day?”
I thought the marijuana reference was only an early version of the song that was to be changed for whatever reason.
However yesterday Sonic Boom (who is mixing the album tentatively called Panda Bear meets the Grim Reaper) released a high quality version of the song, with the title and lyrics “Marijuana makes my day.”
The song is incredible, I love everything about it, and I agree with what it stands for. If the rest of the album stays true to the bootleg then I have some incredibly high hopes. It’s filled with some beautiful songs, and judging by the quality difference from this song Noah is going to really ace it this time.
