Sonic Youth - Sugar Kane (1992) and Marilyn Monroe

Not only is this one of my all time fave SY songs, but check out Kim Gordon's long dress. I find this fascinating because only as far back as '91 she was wearing a mini-dress.

Ironic for me is the fact that this exceptionally good song from Sonic Youth is about Marilyn Monroe, of whom I have collected pictures of since I was 9 years old. All around my apartment walls I have MM pics, specially curated and chosen as a connoisseur of such things.

So yeah, one of my fave songs by one of my fave bands about one of my fave people to collect pictures of. Doesn't get any better than this:
