Madonna, “Die Another Day”
Madonna, paragon of nuance and subtlety, gives a shout-out to the good doctor in this well-whiskey version of a James Bond theme song. “Analyze this,” she sassily entreats, and even a 7-year-old in glasses holding a notepad pretending to be a psychiatrist is like “Easily done.”
The Doors, “The End”
Speaking of nuance and subtlety, here’s 14 minutes of song comprised of lyrics from a teenage boy’s journal that Jim Morrison done stole’d off a windowsill. “I think it's sufficiently complex and universal in its imagery that it could be almost anything you want it to be,” said Morrison in 1969 because of course he fucking did.
Also, yesterday was Bob Seger’s birthday. Here’s “Night Moves.”
Bob Seger rules.
