Another Opening, Another...Opening
What Dan Hicks and Neil Young have in common are two of the most brilliant and hilarious introductions to one of their songs. It's to the point where I don't even listen to the music anymore. Just once in awhile, I'll dial these two tunes up and enjoy the first 30 seconds of each.
Power Pop reminded me after the Radiohead biltzkrieg and again yesterday at his place, there's an astonishing lack of humor and realism in contemporary pop music. Although, a Google Alert led me to this other piece comic brilliance, found on Street Couch dot com's review of the new Radiohead album:
SHORTY FALLS IN LOVE
DON'T LET IT BRING YOU DOWN
If you have any other suggestions for brilliant openings, let me know. I feel a mix coming on.
