It's probably been subsequently noted, but a week or so ago I said there were no classic rock era lyrical references on BB, but I was wrong. 'Comfortably numb' of course is a direct Pink Floyd 'The Wall' reference, one I should have picked up on when the 3 singles were released. This is how to do it right. Have it genuinely mean something within the context of the song and not just be a throw-away line.

also ‘Lithium’ while referring to the drug, could also be a reference to the Nirvana song..not sure if you classify Nirvana as classic rock though

Thanks, Niko. Another member also pointed out 'Mr. Brightside' in 'Thunder,' but I'd consider both bands 'alternative,' and not from the so-called classic rock era, which I guess would span from 1962 through 1979 or 1980. Determining that is difficult, with the rise of Punk in America and England about 1975-1976, which eventually morphed briefly into New Wave, which was a short but exciting time in popular music. 

 

We do know Lana is a Nirvana fan, so we can start looking for post-classic rock era references as well. 

 

And since she's covering the 'American songbook,' we may start to see references to songs from the 1920s-1960s.

i cant believe dealer was nearly track eight on chemtrails 

that means if the tracklist was the same as the final one, it would be between NAWWAL and Yosemite…

she is such a troll :willcut:

As much as I love Dealer, it really didn’t belong on Chemtrails. It would have overshadowed the whole thing. On BB, it’s just perfect to shake things up a bit, midalbum (plus it’s the culmination of the heartbreak that is going to inevitably happen  with If You Lie Down With me and the songs after. 
Chemtrails isn’t perfect although it’s almost there, and it could have been if she had included one or two sexy songs like TJF.
