Le1f strutted to the front ranks of New York's emerging queer-rap scene thanks to his wit, liquid flow and delectably imperious 'tude. There's plenty of smutty, funny sex on this mixtape, but mostly it's a showcase for hazy beats and Le1f 's goofy repertoire of air-travel-themed rhymes: "Turbulence, we hit the clouds/Time to recline you down/Cumulus or stratonimbus/What the fuck? Just get up in this."

    “Love Is the Answer”

    Utopia | 1977

    The message of the Beatles' "All You Need Is Love" proved to be a universal and long-lasting one, which Utopia revisited 10 years later on this ballad. "From a lyrical standpoint, it's part of a whole class of songs that I write, which are about filial love," Todd Rundgren explained. "I'm not a Christian, but it's called Christian love, the love that people are supposed to naturally feel because we are all of the same species. That may be mythical, but it's still a subject." Though "Love Is the Answer" wasn't a hit, a cover version two years later by England Dan & John Ford Coley peaked at Number Ten on the Billboard singles chart.
