Music To My Heart
As strange and delicious music news goes, this story is takes the cake. Moving on from a giant edible gummy skull made to taste like pot, The Flaming Lips are set to release anatomically correct chocolate hearts, and instead of creamy ganache centers, each heart will contain a USB mix of music called "Songs of Love." One of the included tracks is a cover of The Beatles classic "All You Need Is Love" featuring Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.
Many musicians talk about music and how it part of them, like an extra appendage. The Flaming Lips seem to take that idea one, if not 100, steps further. The band is no stranger to general oddity. As mentioned before they've released music in other edible body forms including skulls, vaginas and fetuses. Wayne Coyne, the bands lead singer, once used a vial of his own blood to screen print band posters.
The chocolate hearts are already sold out but that doesn't mean you still can't enjoy the band's sweet music. Go buy a chocolate bar and have a listen to "All You Need Is Love."
