Palomino

Ask Katy

Hi Katy, I am writing to ask about "Palomino" from Big Thing. It sounds a lot like Arcadia to me--I have a strong suspicion it was written mostly by Messrs. Rhodes and LeBon. Am I right? Do they have any comments about this song? Thanks, Austin

"Actually, the song Palomino was mostly John and my baby, but certainly Nick contributed to it. The chorus lyric comes from a quote by Pablo Picasso which Daniel Abrahams one of our co-producers brought to light. It is said that at the height of his 'blue period', the great artist was asked (flippantly, one can only assume) "...but what do you do when you run out of blue?" To which Picasso replied "why, I use red instead." Never lost for words, that one. s"
