Theme De Yoyo

August 21, 2009

Les Stances a Sophie cover

Your head is like a yoyo
Your neck is like a string
Your body’s like Camembert
Oozing from its skin
Your fanny’s like two sperm whales
Floating down the sand
Your voice is like a long fuck
That’s music to your brain

One of the greatest songs I’ve heard recently is by the group The Art Ensemble of Chicago. Theme De Yoyo is the first song off their album Les Stances a Sophie which was made in 1970 as a soundtrack album for a film, but the whole album is great. As I understand it, I don’t think the music was actually ever used in the film. I’ve bought several other Art Ensemble of Chicago albums and they have all been a little too noise/experimental for me. I think they strike the perfect balance here between chaos and melody (at least for my taste).

Download and listen to at least the first four minutes of this mp3 from the RadioLab podcast (or listen to it directly on their page). It is a segment that illustrates the musicality of language in a most remarkable way. The rest of the program is interesting too, especially the Musical DNA segment.
