The music enjoying on the finish of WandaVision episode 4 is none aside from “Voodoo Baby (Slight Return),” the masterful ending monitor from guitar legend Jimi Hendrix’s basic 1968 album, Electrical Ladyland. The music’s psychedelic, bluesy sound suits extremely effectively within the normal vibe of the episodes, however what actually drives issues dwelling are the lyrics: “Nicely, I rise up subsequent to a mountain, and I chop it down with the sting of my hand / Nicely, I choose up all of the items and make an island, may even increase just a bit sand / ‘Trigger I am a voodoo baby, Lord is aware of I am a voodoo baby.”
Now that it is (at the very least seemingly) clear that no matter’s taking place on WandaVision is Wanda’s doing, these strains may very effectively be about her and her determination to create this unusual, little bubble sitcom world. The music’s character additionally apologizes to the listener for taking over their time, which could possibly be seen as an allusion to the poor individuals Wanda seems to be holding hostage in her fantasy. There’s additionally the road, “If I do not meet you no extra on this world then I am going to meet you within the subsequent one,” which may nearly be Wanda chatting with a lifeless Imaginative and prescient. Oh, and naturally, there’s additionally the matter of Wanda’s “voodoo” seemingly leading to multiple baby.
It positive appears to be like like completely every little thing, together with the soundtrack, is rigorously put collectively and massively necessary on this present. Let’s simply hope they will not play any Slayer anytime quickly.
