For all his braggadocio, Drake has a somber side, too, on songs examining twisted relationships and the insecurities they breed. Drizzy waves another such tale on new cut "Girls Love Beyoncé" – just posted to the October's Very Own SoundCloud page – pining for that special person "that'll help me think of someone but myself." Drake drives the point home with the unforgettable refrain from the Destiny's Child hit "Say My Name," enlisting singer James Fauntleroy for the hook.

Drake Releases New Single, 'Started From the Bottom'

Drake recently appeared on DJ Khaled's latest cut "No New Friends" and has also released two other originals – "Started From the Bottom" and "5AM in Toronto" – which could appear on his upcoming record Nothing Was the Same.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
