Thoughts On The Dead

Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

I’m A Queen Bee

I have no opinion on Beyoncé other than I’d respect her more as an artist if she wrote her own songs, like Sinatra or Elvis. I mean: does she even write her own lyrics? The Dead came up with their own words; they didn’t just let random poets or ranchers or Star Trek actors do it for them.

  1. Obligatory random Dead connection:
    Track 5 of Lemonade (“6 Inch”) uses a sample of Animal Collective’s “My Girls” from their excellent Merriweather Post Pavilion album which was named for the legendary Columbia Maryland venue where the Deads and many others played over the years. Bonus: an outtake from MPP, “What Would I Want Sky,” contained the first legally cleared sample of a GD song, Unbroken Chain.
