WHY? I assure you it is GODAWFUL stuff. A causative factor in all that has gone wrong.

Its funny what music some people enjoy, that others can't stand. :)

FreeThinke said...

Not funny at all. I take music, which is after all a language, VERY seriously. Sorry.

It might be useful to try to determine WHY anyone would find stuff like this ENJOYABLE? I've never been able to understand it ever since "it" arrived on the scene.

Anyway, let us not quarrel. Perhaps i should have done what I usually do in these cases,, which is simply to ignore it and move on, but in your case, I have to admit, curiosity got the better of me.

Epic vs "lyrical", IMO.

Anger, resentment, disillusionment... how would classical music deal with these themes? Would it be as "effective"?

See thread above this one...

-FJ said...

How many "dissenters" who you know would have the "wherewithall" to communicate using a symphony orchestra? The people must use the instruments at hand... preferably "amplified" and "mass marketed".

"The Proclaimers", the group featured in the video of this thread, are heavily into the Scottish Independence" movement. So they shout, shout, SHOUT!

FreeThinke said...

The SHOUTED, and look where it got them!

MacBupkis!

Try to forgive me. I'm a militant anti-Vulgarian. And a lover of hypocrisy when employed to maintain a decorous atmosphere.

If you caught Downton Abbey Sunday night, the execrable character known as Miss Bunting portrays the quintessence of what I despise most in people who like to pretend they are civilized.
