I have a body and a brain, but I turn them off again and again

From 1990, here's the Blake Babies' third single, Out There, as featured on their second album, Sunburn. It's a perfect sub-three-minute burst of melodic jangle-pop boasting a memorable double-tracked Juliana Hatfield chorus, backed up with a deft but all-too-short guitar solo. I first heard this on the 1993 Blake Babies compilation, the William Blake-referencing Innocence and Experience, released after the band's demise - an ideal entry-point for anyone intrigued by the band that spawned Hatfield's successful solo career.
