Laurie Anderson-O Superman

You will probably have come across Laurie Anderson at some point and one of her many creative outputs. This 1981 release got to number 2 in the UK, which was a bit of a shock to most of the industry, still us Brits seem to like a bit of doom and grit in music. The backing track is as minimal as they get; Anderson's voice saying 'ah' looped over and little else. It's weird how this song made me feel different things the first few times I listened to it, at first I was laughing because it seems almost ridiculous, then I was amazed because its a really clever, fresh piece of music, and then it made me a bit frightened and it all got a little apocalyptic. The journalist Garry Mulholland has written a fantastic and spot on commentary of it in his brilliant book This Is Uncool: The 500 Greatest Singles Since Punk and Disco which, if you haven't already picked up a copy is a must, just read the reader views on Amazon.

Laurie Anderson-Night in Baghdad

Laurie's style has developed and changed a little over the years and this is from her 1994 release 'Big Red'. This song kind of has me mesmerised, again there's a touch of the silly but also an eerie darkness that hints at mortality and human conflict. Anderson once performed by playing her violin (I don't think either of these songs contain violin) and standing on a block of ice in ice skates, she played until the ice melted. You can buy lots more of her music from Amazon. Read a Wired interview with Laurie here.
