Red Right Hand – by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds 
Lately, I've been watching and loving Netflix's Peaky Blinders. Red Right Hand, by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds is the theme song to the show. Written in 1994, the song was also featured in Guillermo Del Toro's Hellboy (a perfect fit for such a...

Avatar – The Way of Water (dir. by James Cameron) 
James Cameron is still out there, trying to push the envelope. My showing of Avatar: The Way of Water was not only 3D, but in HFR (High Frame Rate), which threw me for a loop. The only other movie I've ever watched on a large...

Today (by Jefferson Airplane) 

With newer audiences suddenly discovering Kate Bush’s “Running Down That Hill”, and everyone who grew up in the 80s enjoying the new found love, it’s interesting how music is lost and found again. The right melody can inspire new remakes and variants.

I can’t say I know much about Jefferson Airplane’s music. The first song that comes to mind will always be White Rabbit, which was remixed as recently as last year for The Matrix Ressurections. From their 1967 album Surrealistic Pillow, we have Today. I find it kind of dark and haunting.

Without it, though, we wouldn’t have one of the best hip hop melodies around. I’ll get to that connection in a bit.

Lyrics:

Today, I feel like pleasing you
More than before
Today, I know what I want to do
But I don’t know what for
To be living for you
Is all I want to do
To be loving you
It’ll all be there
When my dreams come true

Today, you’ll make me say
That I somehow have changed
Today, you’ll look into my eyes
I’m just not the same
To be any more than all I am
Would be a lie
I’m so full of love
I could burst apart
And start to cry

Today, everything you want
I swear it all will come true
Today, I realize how much
I’m in love with you
With you standing here
I could tell the world
What it means to love
To go on from here
I can’t use words
They don’t say enough

Please, please listen to me
It’s taken so long to come true
It’s all for you, all for you
