"The Murder Mystery" by the Velvet Underground screws with you because of two separate voices chanting different lines in separate speakers, and you can't figure the thing out because it seems to be two poetic streams of consciousness speaking.



The Gift > The Murder Mystery

Well, yes.
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

Oh man, the Boiler.  I haven't listened to that song since it was pretty new -- and I'm Scharpling's age, so that means I was entirely too young.  An amazingly powerful, disturbing song.  No joke on the trigger warning -- but it's a serious, important song, and the relation of the vocals to the backing track is powerful stuff.
