Joel Sarakula : Bohemian


More crimes against rhymes this week, courtesy of Sydney groover Joel Sarakula: “I am a Bohemian, a modern stone age man/I got the world at my feet now I think that you’re neat/Well I used to get loose now I’m back on the beat.” That’s the spirit, Joel. Just take a bunch of similar sounding words and slap them together against a rhythm. Worked for Bob Dylan, hey? Okay, it did actually work for Bob Dylan. But he took it seriously, Joel, he was trying to change the wind and stuff. You’re just bouncing around words like a lazy, pleasure-cruising beach bum, and bringing your friends along for a big drunken sing-along finale. Stop having so much fun, Joel.
