Flaming Lips’ “Do You Realize??” is OK’s official state song

March 4, 2009


The Oklahoma State Legislature announced that “Do You Realize??”, by The Flaming Lips, is now the official rock song of the state (they already have a state folk song and a state country song). Democracy in action: over 21,000 people voted online for their favorite from a shortlist of ten, and the Lips got a majority of the votes (a shade over 50%). I think that’s a mandate.
