"Mouth" is a 1996 song by British band Bush from their second album Razorblade Suitcase. Though not released as a single, it was remixed by Bush under the pseudonym Stingray for the 1997 remix album Deconstructed and was released as a single on 7 October 1997, due largely in part to it being featured prominently in both the trailer and the 1997 film An American Werewolf in Paris, the Stingray remix was the version that made the song popular and received airplay on radio peaking number 5 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart.[1]

Music video[edit]

Directed by John Hillcoat, who also directed the music video for the song "Personal Holloway", the music video for the Stingray Mix served as a tie-in for An American Werewolf in Paris that featured an appearance from Julie Delpy. It mainly shows the band performing at a carnival in the desert while clips from the film intervene.[2]
