Talk:Subliminal

From This Might Be A Wiki

Does anyone else think the backward bit sounds like 'play with yourself'? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.50.17.46 (talk) 20:47, September 26, 2004

Song Themes: Death ?[edit]

To me this song is implicitly about death or at least a (potentially) near-death experience. Anyone else think this theme would be appropriate?--Tirranie 13:01, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

I disagree...death is never explicitly mentioned, though it's possible the person didn't survive the windshield he "went through." But we can't assume that. --MisterMe 08:29, 20 December 2012 (EST)

The Boy in the Bubble[edit]

I was recently listening to Paul Simon's 1986 album Graceland and it struck me how similar the opening sequence of this song is to "The Boy in the Bubble"--accordion intro, joined soon thereafter by a deeper instrument. While I realize there was 8 years and an ocean between the songs, it's fun to think about one being influenced by the other. --MisterMe 08:29, 20 December 2012 (EST)

I recall BlueCanary having a similar thought about the intros of those two songs. The similarity isn't much deeper than surface-level, but it's there. And Graceland is a damn awesome album. -CapitalQtalk ♪ 09:37, 20 December 2012 (EST)
Chiming in here unasked, but Kurt Hoffman played on many JH tracks but not this one - but, curiously, check out the opening of his "Crepuscule to Nightfall", it IS Subliminal: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQH6zXcMxI8 123.2.132.137 08:17, 21 September 2013 (EDT)
