I saw this thread bouncing round recent posts for a couple of days now, and I have 2 songs I would like to add to the thread. Neither are the most
esoteric songs, but they are both different ways of looking at the question.
1. Nick Cave - Into My Arms.
This song is about heroin, but it is beautifully crafted to be delivered as a song about a girl. Most people would have no idea this song is about
heroin, that fact is hidden. Hidden knowledge is esoteric.
2. Sage Francis - Escape Artist.
This is not "esoteric", but it was the first thing that came to mind when seeing this thread topic.
I do like everyone elses answers tho. Zappa's camarillo brillo also sprang to mind.
