"I went to this bar called The Pit and Bob Dylan’s When I Paint My Masterpiece came on the jukebox. The first lines are, ‘Oh, the streets of Rome are filled with rubble,’ and that’s when I thought of line: ‘Oh the streets of Grand Theft Auto San Andreas are filled with smoke,"’ he says with a smile.
When I Write My Master’s Thesis — recently featured as a song of the day on NPR — cleverly riffs on When I Paint My Masterpiece almost line for line; Dylan’s "She promised that she’d be right there with me/When I paint my masterpiece" became Samson’s "She said she’d come back home/When I write my master’s thesis," for one example.
