lamarca Learning to dislike a good song (18) RE: Learning to dislike a good song 26 Apr 06

There's a diffrence between a "good" song that's overdone and a popular song that might not be so popular when you really listen to and think about the words. I'm not sure any of these are learning to dislike a "good" song; they're my dislike of popular songs that other folks like because I hear something in the lyrics that I find objectionable.

Ralph McTell's "Streets of London" - Just the sort of advice you want to give a lonely, depressed person who's going through a rough spot "Buck up, kiddo, your probs are all in your head... No matter what problems you have, as long as there's someone out there with worse troubles, yours aren't valid, so quit your whining..."

Willie Nelson's tearjerker, "Always on my Mind" - I treated you like #!%#, but it's OK, babe - you should have realized you were always on my mind, so that makes it all better...

The old Springsteen hit, "Fire", which I refer to as The Date Rape Song - it's every male's fantasy that NO doesn't really mean no...

I'm driving in my car, I turn on the radio
I'm pulling you close, you just say no
You say you don't like it, but girl I know you're a liar
'Cause when we kiss, Fire
