So … on Lanyards, there are these four descending piano notes (dah dah da da). I swear that I know it (or at least it’s familiar) from something else. I’m also pretty sure that the piece I’m thinking of repeats the notes two times (dah dah da da, dah dah da da).
Wow guys! I had not picked up on the Stevie Nix resemblance. Thanks for that.
I realized half way through the day what it was. Being a 40-something dude from Minnesota, most of my music listening involves THS, stuff I still love from the 90s, the occasional T-Swift song and Prince. I think, aside from Prince (~100 shows), the Hold Steady are definitely in second place for the number of shows by one act that I’ve seen.
So, it makes sense that the two would have some crossover in my life.
The line I was thinking of was from Prince’s HitNRun Phase One album: This Could Be Us (2015).
