if i was a “big data” guy, i think i could prove that the psychedelic furs employed the word “stupid” in their lyrics at a disproportionately higher rate than any other band of it’s era.
after someone asked me today if i was going to the upcoming de la soul/nas/wu-tang clan show, i appeared uninterested. when asked, i determined:
“in the first 10 years of hip hop they couldn’t make a record that sounded as good as the party, and in the last 30 years of hip hop, they can’t make a party that sounds as good as the record”
if music is like flavors, then bjork is like horseradish. delicious at the right time, but i wouldn’t make a meal out of it. and i certainly can’t eat it every day.
