What I’m Listening To: “Machinehead” by Bush

“Breathe In, Breathe Out”

It is time we went grunge on this blog.

The gnarly and tactile guitar chords followed by the earthy vocals of Rossdale set this song up for success.

“Got a machinehead, it’s better than the rest
Green to red machinehead
Got a machinehead, it’s better than the rest
Green to red

And I walk from my machine
I walk from my machine”

When I hear this song I think of big engines or cyborgs. Things that we would consider to be powerful machinery.

I also think about someone who could think differently than other people, an example of a non-neurotypical individual who can have proficiency in certain subject matters. They could be a subject matter expert in a number of things or one, a math whiz, or an economics savant. I use the term ‘savant’ with no pejorative intentions.

“Got a machinehead, it’s better than the rest.”
