It’s from the ‘Take a run at the sun’ single (1997):
Take A Run at the Sun
Don’t you Think it’s Time?

thank you so much. that’s one of the few officially released dino release i haven’t heard. i downloaded "the pickle song" and just cracked up. wondered what use it could be.
take a run at the sun was just a single? was that song for a soundrack or something? was it before or after ‘hand it over’? if it was after, i guess it was the last official release with the dino name, huh.February 19, 2003 at 1:02 pm #91605
"Take a run…." is from the "Grace of my Heart" soundtrack (and listed as a J. Mascis track, just as it is on the ‘Ear Bleeding Country’ compilation), the single was release under the Dinosaur Jr. name.
….don’t know if the single was release before or after ‘Hand it over’, but I am sure that there are freaks out there who do know…..February 19, 2003 at 1:29 pm #91606

the european warner release of "hand it over" had an additonal disc 2 "take a run at the sun" plus two bonus songs. "don’t you think it’s time" and "the pickle song". as well as a booklet with some review written by Byron Coley.
As far as I can remember the "grace of my heart"- soundtrack cd doesn’t have the "pickle song", but it is played at some point in the movie.February 20, 2003 at 4:26 pm #91608

Yeah, "The Pickle Song", if I remember correctly, is quite a crucial song in the film, as it marks the point, where the main character, a Brian-Wilson-type played by Matt Dillon finally cracks up. He plays this song to his bandmates, and everybody thinks he’s nuts…everybody, (hope my recollection is right) except the sound engineer, played by…J Mascis! He says something like "It’s great and you know it…". Hope I didn’t mix that up w/ "Don’t you think it’s time", been some time since I last saw the film, but either way: it’s really nice! Also the booklet for the "Grace of my Heart" soundtrack has the lyrics toi every song on it, including "Take a run…" & "Don’t you think…" So, there…
