“The Seventh Seal”Scott Walker

This week, Greg is taking a trip to put a quarter in the desert island jukebox and play a song he can't live without! In March of 2019, the singer and songwriter Scott Walker died at age 76. Recently, Greg spoke with members of the experimental metal band Sunn 0))) who reflected on their unusual collaboration with Walker, who began his career doing blue-eyed soul and somehow towards the end did a song that mentioned both Elvis's twin and 9/11. Greg chose the song "The Seventh Seal" off Walker's 1969 album Scott 4. The song is a reference to the 1957 Ingmar Bergman film of the same name. It deals with a knight who gets in a chess match with Death and unfortunately doesn't come out on top.
