“Zero” by Yeah Yeah Yeahs
from the Album, It’s Blitz (2009)
“Shake it like a ladder to the sun.
Makes me feel like a madman on the run.
Find me never,
never far gone.
So get your leather, leather, leather on.”
“Zero” is one of my Favorite Songs by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. I love Karen’s Voice in this. How you can hear her incredible range. I also love that the Track feels like a melding together of late 70’s Blondie with early 80’s Siouxsie And The Banshees, and then shaken up and stirred with a dash of Deee-lite and Goldfrapp. Alternative Dance? Dark Wave Disco? A little of all of that?
All I know is that “Zero” makes me want to dance or go on a cross-country road trip. Both great ways to feel.
