Well, I partially agree with you.
Its not enough to simply dislike something.
We gotta know what we like.
But here you are complaining about complaining.
If you think they should give the solution why don't you just give the solution?
Your doing the exact thing that you say you don't like.
Pretty ironic, isn't?
A few things you might want to consider.
Lets take a look at a fun cool song like say Motley Crue’s ‘Shout at the Devil’
It’s rebellious it’s in your face, it’s spirited, and catchy in a Satanic metal type of way but it leaves
a few important things out of the mix:
Like what are we shouting at the Devil and why?
Does this hurt the Devil’s feelings? Is the Devil a secret closet submissive that will listen to you
if you shout at him?
If he does listen to you when you shout at him what can you expect him to do for you?
Great song, but hardly a road map to a corner office with a key to the executive washroom.
It does though tend to wind you up and make you rebellious which is probably why you will blow that promotion
to the corner office and the key to the executive washroom.
Now I know what you are saying, not everyone wants a corner office and a key to the executive washroom so this is
no major loss for those that don’t.
Yet ultimately we all must have a code we live by that matters to us that give us a sense of identity and mission in life.
Songs are intentionally vague for two purposes, one is commercially it’s better to let people fill in some blanks on their own.
You could be shouting at the Devil to hop in the car because you are on your way to pick up chics and you think having old Nick along for the ride
might give you an edge.
Or you might be shouting at the Devil to stay away from you because you don’t want him to screw up things with your girl.
The song in essence commercially becomes about what you want it to be about based on your own code and what you would shout at the Devil and why, and
this gives it far more commercial appeal than if it painted a more vivid
picture for you but not one to your liking.
Yet at the same time the song has wound you up and left you completely rudderless but supercharged with emotion
and emotional decisions aren’t typically as well thought out or effectual as ones based in stone cold calculating logic, which is why my song would
be let’s have a ‘Business lunch with the Devil’, which kind of sounds boring and because of that won’t have much emotional and commercial
Words though are only part of what gives a song appeal and makes it usable as a tool. The pitch, the vibrations of the note, the tempo, rhythm and
volume all our powerful vibration elements that effect the central nervous system and tell a story all on their own, a very compelling one, that
people who aren’t musicians or understand the power of vibration on humans would never really understand much about.
Beethoven in parlor performances as a soloist on the piano or with a quartet of strings accompanying him was able to reduce some of Europe’s most
Noble blooded and battle hardened warlords to crying and babbling children simply through the phrasing of his chord structures and the tempos and
pitches without putting one word to his music.
The vibration elements of music can effect emotions even more powerfully than words do.
Of course with no one to kill or apologize in the parlor with them, they would just cry like a bunch of babbling idiots trying to shield their
embarrassment at being human while heaping praise and affection on the artist for his mastery.
The Powers that Be love Music in the 1960’s the British Invasion really was a British Invasion and created a 5th column counter culture army that
could be commanded through it’s musical generals and used to blackmail the administration to keep them in line with the London oligarchs.
The Satanic themed Heavy Metal of the eighties coupled with the mindless pop created a generation of lawless and aimless recreants rebelling against
authority but individually to self destructive end to help fill the Prison Industrial Complex with workers, and the pop culture created a more docile
community of emasculated men beholden to an increasingly more dominant and controlling authoritative woman groomed by verse and melody to teach her
how to do this.
Rap Music and Hip Hop helps to make UniCore Prison Industries a huge cash cow for it’s stockholders as it leads to the mind set for an entire
generation of youth that there just aren’t enough jobs at Walmart for.
The Powers that Be love music! They are the illuminists that light up the screens and dials and infect your mind with the messages that their money
and control of the infrastructure and distribution networks, media outlets and retail outlets brings to you.
As far as my code and how I conduct my life, that is neither here nor there, I have a code a very rigid one, and goals and they aren’t for everyone,
especially they timid or those who like playing it safe in life.
The point is my friend is winding someone up without clear directions and goals just leads essentially to counterproductive burnout and that’s why
the Powers that Be love to bring you such music.
By the way amongst many other things I am a heavy metal rock drummer, and have been writing, playing and performing music for 37 years now.
I know a little bit about the subject
