Subject: RE: Do you need to *believe* what you sing?
Do I believe what I sing? Or indeed should I?

Problem is, over the years you have to learn new songs if that is the case. As a young 'un, I was out to blame everyone for everything and sang the usual left wing clap trap that got good applause, and I possibly believed it, as opposed to wanting the applause.

Then my balls slowly dropped.

Music is an abstract. It can be a view delivery system, but when people go out to be entertained, it is chiefly an abstract.

Bugger me, I don't believe half of what I write on this website, so be blessed if I believe some of the waffle I sing, even if I wrote it!

Troubadour and philosopher are not expressions of the same word...
