We certainly do share a lot of similar values, and I also know there are a few differences too
Wow, I was reading those lyrics as the trans angle. That is quite a different intended meaning than how it comes across.
Certainly in art it’s hard to avoid offending people, and IMHO, it shouldn’t be avoided, as music is a way to make a statement or ask a question, whatever that is. I don’t a problem at all with swear words although I know some people do. And I agree we don’t want this place having religious, political or otherwise flame wars. No good can come of that.
Hehehe… i did not get the meaning of this at all Brian
I went down the «transgender» path right away…
But, that is what its all about, in art we see what we see… i like things that can be seen from different angles, and the meaning is up to your self.
That was excellent Brian and I like how people have listened to the song and interpreted it in different ways and I guess that is the key to a good song and humankind as well. I, like others thought transgender stuff until you told us different.
Great work Mr L. and like you told me, inspiration can come from anywhere.
Just stumbled on this post Brian. Ever the thought provoking entertainer. Clever stuff, well played and sung and the lyrics have certainly provoked some discussion.
Analysing song lyrics can be a dangerous game and can lead to many wrong conclusions as is witnessed here.
Much safer tI stick with “ I love her, she loves me, oh how happy we will be”.
I recently had to do the same to be clear on the distinction between a shag and a cormorant.
A typical Brian song again , stirring lyrics, meandering away from the well-trodden paths, creativ and pleasing.
I couldn’t restist, after all that sex/gender talk, to ask Mr. Google. Happy to see, that obviously I’m keeping with the times…
As soon as lyrics start to leave familiar athmospheres, we tend to over interpretation too often. I do remember those times in school, when texts were dissected for hours to come to conclusions the author never meant . So I take it as it is, just leave some flowers to thank you for some alternativ music .
