Do you love classic rock? A disproportionate number of my car radio presets are for classic rock stations. I love listening to and introducing my children to classic rock. With the influences of their dad and me, our kids are sure to turn out well-rounded, musically speaking.
I heard two songs the other day, both with notoriously long endings. Not just in terms of minutes and seconds, but also in terms of Na Nas.
How Well Do You Know Your Outros?
When I heard these two songs in near succession, I got to wondering which one had more Nas.
And then with radical curiosity (also known as “I can’t let an idea go once it’s in my head), I used my powers of observation and finger-counting to research the answer.
So without actually counting (for me that’s a blog post; for you that’s cheating) tell me which ending you estimate has more “Nas” in it. Your choices are:
A. Hey Jude by a wide margin
B. Hey Jude by a little
C. The two endings are within 10 Nas of each other
D. Lovin, Touchin, Squeezin by a little
E. Lovin, Touchin, Squeezin by a lot.
After you log your answer in a comment below (show your work! include your reasoning!), you can do your own counting if you absolutely must know — without spoiling it for the others.
But if you don’t want to go to the trouble, tune in here another day and I’ll reveal the answer.
(In researching this post, I discovered I wasn’t the first one to ponder the Na Nas. )
