Put EVE Radio on in the car to help survive a late night commute and the DJ was playing Hazbin's Addict, which led me on to this:

I've started actually actively listening to music again, and have found some new stuff. But this one really crammed its way in there.

I love this song, but oh man, when this video first came out, I got really excited near the end of the video when the horns(?) start coming in, because I had a feeling I knew what was coming. Now I just want a Caravan Palace music videoverse.

Friday mentioned the Just-World fallacy the other day and that sort of talk always reminds me of my own sentiments on the theme (I'm sure I've posted enough times about that to not bother repeating it again here), which in turn sometimes brings this song to mind.

Of course this was originally a Dylan tune, a highly unusual take on the protest song (another thing I'm on about not-infrequently). There's an apocryphal story about the "Hard Rain" being nuclear fallout, because the song was originally released during the Cuban Missile Crisis. But Dylan wrote and recorded the song a month beforehand, and in any case explained in interviews that
No, it's not atomic rain, it's just a hard rain. It isn't the fallout rain. I mean some sort of end that's just gotta happen ... In the last verse, when I say, "the pellets of poison are flooding the waters," that means all the lies that people get told on their radios and in their newspapers.

I'm not one of those people who think "Bob Dylan can't sing". In the case of A Hard Rain, he gets a lot of flak from people who don't recognize that he's using a historical folk style, where his semi-spoken-word singing is perfectly appropriate for a song structurally styled on a classic call-and-response troubador ballad.

That said, sorry Bob, but the Staples Singers cover, which reframes it as a spiritual, including actual call-and-response is, IMO, the definitive version. Maybe it's just because I really love harmonies and group songs, but this version seems so much more powerful.

at some point I'm going to have to deal with the fact that the older I get, the more music I like has anime girl visualizers.

Last week, I heard The Rocketeer theme on the radio, and it was stuck in my head, so yesterday I watched The Rocketeer.



It's a good theme!

Been thinking of this one for days because, am I wrong or is the rhythm of the verse sections the same as the rhythm of the verse sections from Johnny B. Goode?! It certainly has a very Chuck Berry-style cadence.

This isn't a gotcha. I mean, that's actually a great callback tying back to the song's theme if intentional.

You're correct, though it's probably not intentionally referencing Johnny B. Goode. It's a standard blues shuffle, which is used a lot in blues rock, and parts of the vocal melody sound like Chuck Berry's melody. Though both of those things are so fundamental to rock at this point it's hard to think of them as callbacks or references
