Stop, Look & Listen – No.4

Morning everybody

Interesting subject this week and one that brings us back to music and lyrics.

I want us to revisit the song ‘I Am The Resurrection’ by The Stone Roses.

As usual, I am not going to say too much other than it is a strange and, I suspect, rather knowing and deliberate use of the line ‘I am the resurrection and I am the life’.

A use, for which I am grateful. Remember, one of the core ‘ideas’ at work on this site is that you can take something rather well known and place it next to something also known but wildly different and by doing that you can be encouraged to think of both subjects afresh. A task we term Imaginative Reidentification.

If nothing else, it is a great record and one that I suspect will have you happily humming the tune for days.
