Message 28: Paranoid Piggy (God Loves)

The tenth line (approximately) of “Paranoid Android” reads: “Kicking and squealing gucci little piggy.” Gucci sells products and kills animals.

The final line of “Paranoid Android,” “God loves his children, God loves his children, yeah!”, is a phrase from the Book of Mormon, 1 Nephi, Chapter 11, verse 17: “And I said unto him: I know that he loveth his children; nevertheless, I do not know the meaning of all things.” Also, Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs wrote and recorded a song entitled “God Loves His Children” (c. 1948) with Mercury Records.

i once read that thom’s reasoning behind “kicking squealing gucci little piggy” spawned as the result of a time he was in a store. a woman, dressed presumably in gucci or the like, was kicking and screaming about something, whining in the manner that spoiled rich kids would. i dont recall where i heard this, however. it could also have been a man in the store, as the songs states, “that’s it sir, you’re leaving, the crackle of pigskin, the dust and the screaming, the yuppies networking.” all would seem to fit this situation.

of course, …i might be wrong (i could’ve sworn i saw a light coming on)
