My Freak Flag

Posted by shanoah on July 23, 2008

Well, I thought we could continue our freak parade here, so I’ll continue with more songs on the subject. First, Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young:

Almost Cut My Hair – Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

This is the classic “Almost Cut My Hair”. I’ve had to cut my hair the last year or so, so I can feel where they are coming from. (My current wait between haircuts is “Until someone at work complains”, incidentally. Bloody dress code…)

I feel like letting my freak flag fly
Cause I feel like I owe it to someone

Non-conformity, and not giving in to the man is what this is all about.

If 6 Was 9 – Jimi Hendrix

This song actually fits into the last rather nicely with these lyrics:

Oh, I don’t mind, I don’t mind
If all the hippies cut off all their hair
Oh, I don’t care, oh I don’t care…

And of course, right along with the last song, he also is waving his freak flag high.

For the last song, I thought I’d diverge a bit, and play something that is just freaky.

Freak – LFO

Chinese girls lock their teacher in a bathroom, and freak out in slow motion to music? This is quite bizarre. Very surreal and discordant. Reminds me of Sean’s last post, in fact…
