How I wrote … Thinking/Not Thinking, 2011, with Martin Creed (voc., git.) and Band, 3:00 min.
Film: The Guardian
Hi, my name is Martin Creed and this is my band, Keiko, Be, Rob, and Genevieve, and this song that we are gonna play now, that we are gonna try to play, is called »Thinking / Not Thinking.«
I was trying to describe what living is like, and I was thinking that living consists of thinking, and not thinking, you know? And that’s just about it. So I tried to put that in a song and it’s got two chords in it: there’s a chord for thinking, and a chord for not thinking, and that’s the way it goes, thinking, and not thinking.
I don’t know if it’s better to think or not to think, but I think it’s probably better not to think.
