  • Foxes and Hedgehogs: The Top Thirteen Songs at 3:12

    14 Oct 2009, 2:04 de rockrobster23

    "The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing."

    It's not only true of philosophers and historians, it's true of musicians too. Some bands are hedgehogs: they have one big idea that informs everything they do. Other bands are foxes, who successfully try out a variety of ideas, often (though not always) within the same song. If you need more than one hyphen to describe a band, it's probably a fox: The Velvet Underground, TV on the Radio, David Bowie.

    I suspect most of us would say it's better to be a fox, but it's hard to imagine the world without hedgehogs. Chuck Berry was a hedgehog. The Ramones were quintessential hedgehogs, as are most punk bands. Most pure genre performers are by definition hedgehogs: blues, surf, punk, country, etc. Even The Beatles, who in some ways are the Platonic ideal of the fox, started out as hedgehogs.

    Of course, it's not a classic binary; there's a continuum with hedgehog on one end and fox on the other…
