That word you're using, it does not mean what I think you think it means.
Right, because you know more about what I'm thinking, than I do.
So you mean to tell me that a song about the "parallel between looking in the eyes of [his] (deceased) son, and the eyes of the father that [he] never met, through the chain of [their] blood" makes you feel discouraged, demoralized, makes you lose confidence and determination? Not that it's, say, heartbreaking?Fippmam wrote:Right, because you know more about what I'm thinking, than I do.Phytotron wrote:That word you're using, it does not mean what I think you think it means.

And as one of the current top comments says, "It's pretty sad that the highest voted comment on a video solely about musical talent is one that reduces a highly skilled woman down to her ability to sexually please a man. You've really broke the mould for originality there."Tadd wrote:Under this video stood once: "Gabriela once gave Chuck Norris a h*ndj*b. He died."
Could be true...
WU-TANG's GZA raps and rhymes on StarTalk with Neil deGrasse Tyson. Kinda odd the part where Tyson is astounded by the idea that musical lyrics could influence a person's thought processes and subsequent direction in life, particularly on an intellectual level, like that's a novel concept to him. "I don't know anyone who has listened to any other performer, who can make that claim." Really, Neil? I mean, even in pop music, especially being of his generation—since it's nearly non-existent these days—this is a cat who grew up in the 60's and 70's. And of course meaningful, consciousness-raising lyrics in popular music go back decades before that period, too. But I digress.Clutch wrote:Guillotine - Raekwon

To paraphrase Rossini, Wagner has its moments but it also has its hours.sinewav wrote:Been listening to this every day for the past week:
Richard Wagner - The Ring Without Words
Man, does it ever. For those of you reading this who don't know, Wagner's operas are some of the longest and most demanding of all musical endeavors. The link I posted above is 75 minute medley of music from The Ring Cycle, an opera that takes 4 days to complete, roughly 15 hours of music. Wagner wrote it over a 25 year period. He has several other epic works, but some of his stuff is rather flat. Even still, he may be my favorite composer, or at least in the top 5.Phytotron wrote:To paraphrase Rossini, Wagner has its moments but it also has its hours.
As I was reading sinewav's post, I was just about to reply that the likes of Shostakovich and Schoenberg are among my favorites (to the extent I have favorites of anything).Word wrote:Regarding classical music, perhaps some of you like...Shostakovich....
