Song of the Day (The Chain): Thurston Moore – Speak To The Wild

Day 14. The connection between yesterday’s song (Easy Money by King Crimson) & todays may seem kinda tenuous, I have to admit, but I actually think there’s a hidden logic which connects the two nicely.

The main connection is the lyric in Speak To The Wild which goes “the king has come to join the band”. The idea of king’s playing with bands definitely works for me. In addition to this, the songs are both of similar length, coming in around the 8 minute mark & it may just be me, but I feel that they’re similar compositionally too.

Another reason I wanted to include Speak To The Wild was because of the incredibly creepy video. Whenever the song comes on in the house my partner always asks “is this the song with the creepy video?”

Speak to the wild
Reach the for wire
Protect your child
From empty empire

The king has come to join the band

Remove your wings
And meet us near the fire
Extinguish things
Of earthly desire

The king has come to meet the band
The king has come with no demand

Don’t let the dark get you lost
Your free will has come in fire and frost

Speak to the wild
Reach for the wire
Protect your child
From empty empire

The king has come to join the band

Remove your wings
And meet us near the fire
Extinguish things
Of earthly desire

The king has come to meet the band
The king has come with no demand

Don’t let the dark get you lost
Your free will has come in fire and frost

Speak to the wild
Reach for the wire
Protect your child
From empty empire

The king has come to join the band

Remove your wings
And meet us near the fire
Extinguish things
Of earthly desire

The king has come to meet the band
The king has come with no demand

Don’t let the dark get you lost
Your free will has come in fire and frost
