Classic Music: N*E*R*D – “Brain”

“Brain” plays on a double entendre as the protagonist questions himself to whether he loves his girl’s oral sex or her intellect (that rhymes). The track signifies everything we come to love from the funk-rap band N*E*R*D: melodic guitars, sexually-driven lyrics, and Pharrell‘s angelic voice…not to mention a killer second verse by the lesser-known third member of the crew, Shae.  “Brain” is the third track from the group’s 2002 re-release of In Search of… which featured more rock-tinged instrumentals (thanks to Spymob) than the previous version that debuted in 2001.

“Do I really even love you/Or do I really love your brain/I just love your brains”
