Here's a new series of posts I'm going to do. I've been interested lately in lyrics that explicitly reference other bands (i.e. name them), so thought it'd be fun to dig a few out. Musicians referencing other musicians is something that's interested me for a long time, and I've done a little bit on it before in my Song Titles posts.
I'll kick off with Jay-z and a track from his recent album, Blueprint 3, called Reminder.
Ten number one albums in a row, who better than me?
Only The Beatles, nobody ahead of me.
I crush Elvis in his blue suede shoes,
Make the Rolling Stones seem sweet as Kool Aid too.
Album: Blueprint 3
