The Doors: The Crystal Ship
Another masterwork of Morrison’s psychedelic poetry.
Before you slip into unconsciousness
I’d like to have another kiss
Another flashing chance at bliss
Another kiss, another kiss
The days are bright and filled with pain
Enclose me in your gentle rain
The time you ran was too insane
We’ll meet again, we’ll meet again
Oh tell me where your freedom lies
The streets are fields that never die
Deliver me from reasons why
You’d rather cry, I’d rather fly
The crystal ship is being filled
A thousand girls, a thousand thrills
A million ways to spend your time
When we get back, I’ll drop a line
But always keep in mind that even a genius like Morrison wouldn’t have so been much without his band.

If You Wanna
This song, and their debut album ‘What did you expect from the Vaccines?’, was one of the biggest successes of the guitar indie rock in the last year. You remember? No? Refresh your memory…

White Americans, what?
Nothing better to do?
Why don’t you kick yourself out,
you’re an immigrant too.
White Stripes - Icky Thump
Lou Reed / The Velvet Underground: The musical companion piece to pop art. While listening I’m always on the verge of buying Andy Warhol prints.
