Scrapbook Mix: Oddity


Using my thesis as a theme for music was kind of difficult, so I suppose I put it to a heightened form, which is just that oddity becomes memorable. While this might be a bastardization of the thesis a little, I thought these songs fit well with that - they all matter to me because of their idiosyncrasies. Some are lyrical, like #4 (Blonde on Blonde is Bob Dylan's stream of consciousness album). Some have an idiosyncratic song structure, like #9 or #3 which always gets me. Some are merely strange versions, like the dichotomy of 6 and 7 or, less obvious, 13, which I've known for years because of the cover Dr. Dog did of the song, making the original bizarre.
