#137. Clowns & Masks
"The Blimp" by Captain Beefheart


Click the arrow for music


Clowns are a mythical part of our culture. The belief is that clowns present a happy face to the world, while secretly grieving inside. Masks offer people a chance to step out of their normal routine and present a different persona. They're usually reserved for Halloween, Mardi Gras, or costume parties. Here are some albums that use clowns and masks for their cover themes.
