I was thinking today about the video for Just Like Heaven and how the drummer had this upside-down cymbal that made a very short crashy sound and I decided every drummer should have a short crashy cymbal because c’mon cymbals last way too long for the most part. No one wants to listen to a cymbal drown out everything for hours on end. Tighten that shit up.
That got me to thinking about the opening drum fill on Inbetween Days and so I listened to just that part like 500 times. My brain couldn’t process what was happening.
It’s like how sometimes I’ll listen to the opening riff of When Doves Cry over and over because scientists to this day still can’t figure out what exactly is happening in that thing.
P.S. That riff was my ringtone for a while until I realized it stressed me out whenever I got a call because like what is Prince even doing I can’t deal and I don’t need that in my life every time the cable company wants to know why I’m such a no-good skinflint layabout.
I never woke up that early. I worked a late shift and followed it with a three-hour computer stretch starting at midnight, so eleven was an appropriate time for me to start the day. But that day, I had to wake up early to drive my dad to a job interview.
His English was pretty rocky (still is)…
That stupid reductive heart at the top of my screen does exactly nothing to represent how much I enjoyed reading this.
