In ‘Little Sister’, on 18 Monkeys Thomas manages to say, or to sing, the word “Yeah” for by my count something approaching 40 times in a row; we hear it – it is repeated, it’s said once and again, where this is done without losing the feel of variation and continuity of thought of the music – it works as a balancing act – and since it comes off – he nails it as a kind of myth: the cliché of the affirmative.
