Window Seat

Erykah Badu recorded this song about escapism and a longing for a lover’s attention in the shower. “I wanted it to sound like I was in a tunnel,” she told Rolling Stone. Two weeks after that interview‘s publication, her gentle soul tune became controversial when Badu filmed the “guerrilla-style” video, featuring her stripping before a surprised crowd as she walked through Dallas’ Dealey Plaza — the site of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination. “I tied it in a way that compared that assassination to the character assassination one would go through after showing his or herself completely,” she said.
