AT / AA 95

Andy Warhol - Mickey

I have a real love hate with this track for a very specific reason. When I'm riding the train home with my library on shuffle as usual, the last thing I expect is the explosion of drums that kicks off Listen Now, and I bet those cymbals can be heard across the carriage from my headphones. After the initial shock and frantic search for the volume buttons though, it's a shining example of Deep Cuts era The Knife, which Like Rustie's Glass Swords is very upbeat and peppy for the most part. Only with much more pronounced euro influence and some dark lyrics hiding behind the lighthearted exterior.
