Song of the Day – “O Superman” – Laurie Anderson

And I said, OK, who is this really?

Is there any more unlikely a pop star than performance artist Laurie Anderson? For her magnum opus, United States, she created many gadgets to help her tell her stories: mouthlights (as shown in this video) and tape violins, which held a length of audio tape in the bow that was stroked over a tape pickup head.

‘Cause when love is gone, there’s always justice.
And when justice is gone, there’s always force.
And when force is gone, there’s always Mom.
Hi Mom!
