Todd Rundgren: “Onomatopoeia” (1978)

Love seems to have a variety of effects on Todd Rundgren. On the one hand, it inspired beautiful and timeless ballads like “Hello it’s Me”, “I Saw the Light” and “Can We Still be Friends”.

But it also can, as he puts it, “rearrange¬†my brain in a strange cacophony”. A series of sound effects bring Todd’s dysfunction vividly to life. One suspects the studio wizard had studio time to fill, or needed one more song to fill out the album. Or perhaps he simply wanted to show off his studio wizardry. Whatever–your small children¬†will love it.
