I apoligize for obsessive commenting, but for decades with me it’s been “Laura, Laura, Laura!” to the detriment of personal relationships. Lester Bangs apparently could not stop talking about Lou Reed in the same way. Anyway, now I have a place to vent!!
I LOVE this. It’s probably inspired by the Kanye West sample of “Save the Country” from his graduation album. People criticize samples and looping, but I am living evidence that they do, in fact, serve to heighten interest in the original artist. As a former punk kid, I HATED Steely Dan. But when De La Soul sampled “Peg,” it changed my mind and I grudginly bought “Aja.” Now I’m a Dan fanatic.
Here’s hoping Kanye and the like will bring more people to Laura.
