‘I love NY more than ever’, why a a variation of the icon?
The only subtlety is the wound, which is located on the lower ‘west side’ of the heart. The shaded portion represented the very area in lower manhattan where the once proud world trade center twin towers stood until a pair of hijacked passenger jets slammed into them. Showing a wounded heart is important. To attain healing, the first thing one must do is to acknowledge that there’s pain. Unfortunately the department of commerce seemed tepid to adopt this creation. That’s why I sent the new logo to the ‘New York Daily News’, which lost no time reproducing it and using it to wrap the newspaper. Close to a million copies of the logo circulated around the city, turning up on windows, lampposts and subway walls.
That riff makes me feel like I’ve been strapped to a conveyor belt on one of those industrial machine factory assembly lines, and the lick after "Wanna Whole Lotta Love" is when the buffing apparatus comes down and just rips the top layer of skin right off my body.
I have a Classic Riffs playlist of my own.
And of course the Brits had The Smiths in the Top 10.
