Living Colour (D -3): Flying

Musically speaking, Flying is maybe the most simple song featured in the 4th Living Colour‘s album Collideoscope. The tune is based on a classic ballad chords progression: simple and predictable. Yet it is a powerful song because of the double meaning lyrics. As it is obvious that the song is about 9/11 events, it can be understood on several different levels. To be honest, it took me several rounds on the stereo to understand that it was not a song about suicide…
