Some days you read something that changes your life.
I’ve listened and heard Devo’s “Whip It” my whole life. Practically. It was released in 1980. I used to roller skate to it. It is virtually ubiquitous, and ubiquitous things become things you do not think you can learn anything new about.
Then I stumbled upon this.
As it turns out, “Whip It” rips off Roy Orbison.
It’s like when you see the arrow in the FedEx logo.
You’ll never see or hear that the same way again. Never.
