Subject: RE: Do you need to *believe* what you sing?
Jerry, I don't remember who said songs shouldn't carry messages. I just said that it wasn't what interested me. There's no need to get rid of any songs in that. You can appreciate a piece without taking it's message to heart, but, you may never really know how much the message it carries might have somehow inspired the very qualities you like in it.
