Song of the Day, December 19: Weird Monkeys by Peter Blegvad

BlegvadMonkeysToday’s song is Weird Monkeys from Peter Blegvad’s finest album, 1983’s Naked Shakespeare. It’s a nice snapshot of his work, a smart, offbeat set of observations set to avant-pop music. Blegvad neatly dissects the human condition, taking a whimsical — if somewhat dark — objective look at the creatures that rule our world. He turns in a great vocal, pacing his almost spoken observations for maximum impact.

Distracted
by trivia, trance & trauma
from a possibility
their history
consistently
betrays.

Enjoy this witty song today.
