The Yeah Yeah Yeah Song
Where do they get them? Once again lovable Uncle Wayne is back with yet another slice of sublime musical weirdness, this time tackling subjects as heavy as global political attitudes and positions of power in the wonderfully abstract and uplifting manner which only The Flaming Lips are capable of. In the vein of ‘Do You Realize’ Coyne questions the listeners' understanding of the mindset of those in power before concluding “You can not know yourself or what you’d really do with all your power”. This all unfolds amid a backdrop of typically weird and eclectic festival friendly sounds making for an infectious, intelligent and very welcome respite to the barrage of Blair bashing and anti-Bush protest songs. On this form Coyne and co just can’t be bettered.
