Zuhair Murad FW 2013
i was talking to sidonie yesterday abt how there’s no word for the opposite of dropping the bass and all i could come up with was the ‘the part of the song where you see god’ and instead of asking all of you to come up with a term bc i think in the end it depends on your relationship with music (and, like. god.) i’m just going to give you this, which i used as example. you’ll know the bit.

the raven himself is hoarse
that croaks the fatal entrance of duncan
under my battlements. come, you spirits
that tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here,
and fill me from the crown to the toe top-full
of direst cruelty. make thick my blood,
stop up th’access and passage to remorse,
that no compunctious visitings of nature
shake my fell purpose, nor keep peace between
th’ effect and it. come to my woman’s breasts,
and take my milk for gall, you murd’ring ministers,
wherever in your sightless substances
you wait on nature’s mischief. come, thick night,
and pall thee in the dunnest smoke of hell,
that my keen knife see not the wound it makes,
nor heaven peep through the blanket of the dark,
to cry ‘hold, hold!’
