sup, week 24?!
i’m a mere two weeks away from my six month “rebirth”!
today’s jam of the day is one that i consider a serious life-changer. there are several artists and songs that fall under this category, and i hope to be able to slowly share them with you over time. some are fairly popular, some are not.
“born, never asked” by laurie anderson is today’s selection. a remastered version of the song, to be specific.
while the lyrics themself are rather simplistic, they subtly beg the listener to dig a little deeper within themself to fully understand their meaning. spiritualized did a pretty stellar cover of this song (will most def feature some spiritualized, spacemen 3, spectrum, etc.) in upcoming jam of the day entries.
if you want an additional eargasm, i highly recommend david bowie’s cover of anderson’s “o superman.” holy shit, is all i have to say.
“It was a large room. Full of people. All kinds.
And they had all arrived at the same buidling
at more or less the same time.
And they were all free. And they were all
asking themselves the same question:
What is behind that curtain?
You were born. And so you’re free. So happy birthday.”
