Our song for today is "Drag the River" from the deluxe edition of World Peace Is None of Your Business.
What do we think of this one?
You feel the ebb and flow of the water in the music, and sense the drama of being swept away by the current.
From my perspective, the collaboration with Joe C. has made the music more vivid and cinematographic., augmenting the listening experience (when it is well done).
And the words provide a beautiful reflection on death, one of his obsessions.
I also find the photo on top of the page very appropriately chosen.
Not really. Apart from my profound objection to all the flack Kiss Me A Lot gets (which I realise is entirely subjective), it just fits the album much better than Drag The River...Simply put, one of the best songs recorded in that session - should never have been relegated to a bonus track. How this didn't make the proper album, and 'Kiss Me a Lot' did is mind-blowing.
