"Devil Like Me" will be familiar to KOTCB readers from The Devil's Triangle post concerning the Brett Kavanaugh witch trial. Dito for "Sleepytime in the Western World" which showed up in the I could really use a wish right now post concerning Barack Obama's theme song. "3 Bless" and "Boss" are rap songs from two degenerates names Ace Hood and Lil Pump respectively and my boy love them - he only listens to rap music and considers all other genres to be something he calls "country music" which "sucks" in his opinion. "Unicorn Farm" is an instrumental and ties in nicely with KOTCB Pestilence Rides a White Unicorn. "You Can't Stop This Motherfucker" is another pick from the 7 year old but I really like it and think the Trump 2020 campaign should consider it as a replacement for "You Can't Always Get What You Want" to wrap mass rallies and public appearances by The Elvis from Queens. "Dark Horse" is a long time favorite of mine written as an answer and jab at George Harrison's many critics who simply couldn't believe that he, the quiet one, was the most visionary and artistic member of the Fab Four. This reality became self evident with the release of various solo albums by the Liverpool lads once the band had officially broken up and, though the cognitive dissidence caused significant discombobulation at the time (early '70's), it is crystal clear now that "All Things Must Pass", "The Concert for Bangladesh", "Living in the Material World" and "Dark Horse" simply outclass anything produced by John, Paul or Ringo. It raises the question as to what beneficent and quiet influence George imparted on The Beatles in the creation of their music and has me thinking that they might have been just another Herman's Hermits without him.
I'm a dark horse
Running on a dark race course
I'm a blue moon
Since I stepped out of the womb
I've been a cool jerk
Who's looking for the source
I'm a dark horse
You thought that you had got me in your grip
Baby looks like you was not so smart
And I became too slippery for you
Let me tell you that was nothing new
No, I'm at a loss as to who the dark horse might be in this collection of misfits but I feel confident one will emerge. Former Vice President Joe Biden is currently polling top dog and he might win if it were a dog race but this is a horse race. And the 40% of Democrats want someone who is not even listed a possible candidate so the opportunity is there for a creative thinker with guts. After all, you never know who's going to win.
"Sea of Air" is a great song from the second best thing to ever come out of Wasilla, Alaska.
