I just became the last person in
In honor of the book I have created a Da Vinci Code inspired top 5 list. Here you go:
1) My Mathematical Mind by Spoon: In honor of Robert Langdon, the book’s main charecter
2) Pyramid Song by Radiohead: Inspired by the famous or infamous glass pyramid added to the Louvre. Great tune, great band.
True story: I.M. Peh is the architect who designed the pyramid at the Louve. His sister once stuck her finger up my butt. It’s true… I swear. I was in
3) Venus by Television: Venus is talked about often in the book as the “Sacred Feminine”. Of course this song is about the Venus Di Milo, which is located in the same place as The Mona Lisa (the Louvre). Marquee Moon is one of the all-time great albums, and it’s totally overlooked today.
4) Visions of Johanna by Bob Dylan: From one of the greatest songs ever written:
“Inside the museums, Infinity goes up on trial
Voices echo this is what salvation must be like after a while
But Mona Lisa musta had the highway blues
You can tell by the way she smiles”
5) The Book I Read by The Talking Heads: I think this one is obvious.
