Sunday Music: Beastie Boys

The Spike Jonze documentary… beautiful. It’s a piece of history, if you’re interested, don’t miss it. Paul’s Boutique will always be one of my top albums. “Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego” is an outright anthem. The smartness, the humor, the technical brilliance, it’s all here. And they even made a hand-painted video. All hail.

Riddle me this, my brother — can you handle it?
Your style to my style, you can’t hold a candle to it
Equinox symmetry and the balance is right
Smokin’ and drinkin’ on a Tuesday night
It’s not how you play the game, it’s how you win it
I cheat and steal and sin, and I’m a cynic
For those about to rock, we salute you
The dirty thoughts for dirty minds we contribute to
I once was lost but now I’m found
The music washes over and you’re one with the sound
Well, who shall inherit the earth? The meek shall
And, yo, I think I’m starting to peak now, Al
And the man upstairs, I hope that he cares
If I had a penny for my thoughts, I’d be a millionaire
We’re just three emcees and we’re on the go
Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego!
