- Needle in the Hay
"Needle in the Hay" Single by Elliott Smith from the album Elliott Smith Released July 21, 1995 Recorded September 1994 Genre Indie Length 4:16 Label Kill Rock Stars Writer(s) Elliott Smith Producer Elliott Smith
"Needle in the Hay" is a song written by Elliott Smith first released as the opening track on his self-titled second release, Elliott Smith, then released on 7" vinyl. It later appeared in Wes Anderson's 2001 film, The Royal Tenenbaums, and can be found on the movie's soundtrack.
Trumpet and harmonica were recorded for the song but were omitted from the final mix. A mix featuring the extra instrumentation has not been released in any form.
During later shows with a full band, the song was given more of a "rock" arrangement and would feature drums and bass, with Smith also singing the vocals an octave higher.
During some live performances Smith would alter the lyrics "...head down to toes a reaction to you..." to "...everyone knows he's a reaction to you..."
The song has also been covered by punk band Bad Astronaut for their 2001 album Acrophobe, Nadja in their covers album "When I See the Sun Always Shines on T.V." and by Muppet parody Sad Kermit. This song was also covered by Mélissa Laveaux.
