As Wayne Coyne noted, “It’s just an illusion caused by the world spinning round.”
Which is by way of announcing that the Flaming Lips’ “Do You Realize??” has been declared, by popular vote, to be Oklahoma’s state rock song.
Yeah, there were nominees I might have preferred, but you know, there’s something inordinately cool about having a state song included on an album titled Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots.
The rest of the state songs:
- The state song: “Oklahoma!” from the Rodgers/Hammerstein musical
- The state country song: “Faded Love,” Bob Wills
- The state folk song: “Oklahoma Hills,” Jack & Woody Guthrie
You can hear “Do You Realize??” on the Lips’ MySpace page.
