“Dream Baby Dream” by Bruce Springsteen
Originally by Suicide
Bye Bye Bayou by LCD Soundsystem
originally by Alan Vega (of Suicide)
I have an unhealthy relationship with the lyrics of James Murphy. I can shamelessly recite the words and declare the impetus of each and every single LCD Soundsystem track and effectively alienate anyone who couldn’t give a shit (basically everyone). I almost wept in joy when Murphy announced that he’s working on his new record, and again when I saw that his first release since the announcement was a cover of a track by one of his biggest influences, Alan Vega of Suicide.
