Don't worry about it. The simple answer is Yes.

The more extended answer is: it's a song. Form your own opinion and interpretation. If you think he's singing about discarded twentieth-century philosopy, fine. If you think it's about having a bloody good night on some bloody expensive nasal pastry, fine. If you think it's something in the background whilst you get you're rocks off, you can stay the hell away from me, pal.

as a general rule i learned somewhere

freedom of enterpretation is a load of hippie s**t

the author had a purpose in writing something; enterpretation is figuring that out what the purpose was.

but whatever makes you feel good.... hippies

... being a bit of an 'old hippie' I take exception to your second 'sentence' ... Also couldn't find "enterpretation" in any dictionary,
but I understand the concept of 'freedom' - 'oldies' like me and Mr Blast for example, know what this used to mean and are I suppose, a bit 'nostalgic' for it ... Not sure about these days though.

Anyway, in my usual contrary way I have decided to pick up on this thread, and even 'revive' it - if that is possible? Wink

Like the Grand Master himself (AE) and some other Heartlanders, I was born in 1959 - it was a very special year, and has a multiplicity of significancies - The Chinese Year of The Boar (Bore? - Wink to name just one ... It was also a very fine year for Champagne, Cadillacs too ...
Perhaps of more obvious interest would be the end of a reputedly rather dull decade (in Blighty anyway), before the 'dawn' of the 'Age of Aquarias' in the 1960s. One might obscurely view the lyrics as an obscure lament for times lost ... Certainly it was the end of real Style and Haute Couture - just check your fashion books ...

My real motive here, if you haven't already sussed it, is to re-open this thread - As a lapsed Art Historian, I am especially interested in 50's Music, Culture, Art, Literature, Philosophy etc ... It is much neglected decade, and just maybe this is what Mr E is hinting at?

Your thoughts pretty please? (Especially from the Raven Queen - if you will Sinnie? Wink - I reckon there might be some existentialism in here somewhere ... Wink

Thread necro! Laughing Razz

I wouldn't worry about ol' Rabbit, reactiv8 - I don't think he/she comes around here very much, anyway... Rolling Eyes Laughing


ETA: Wow, that was incredibly rude of me! I posted the above blather without having fully read your post!

Hmmm...I'm not too keen on anything from the '50s, so I dunno how much I can contribute to your discussion. Maybe a few guidelines or specifics might help..? Mr. Green

Wow, an 'apology' from The Sinful Queen? Wink Laughing ... I'm stunned - only for a moment, you understand? Wink

No, I'm not at all 'bothered' by 'ol' Rabbit' - just using that as an excuse to pursue my own twisted thread (as usual - you know me by now surely?!)

Rude? - Not at all Laughing - Just showing that you are thankfully 'still alive' (unlike some ...) - Yes, please do read my post (it took me quite a while on a very slow dial up ...)

Give the Fifties another chance (pretty please?) - I reckon you might even be the re-incarnation of a certain Vampira?! - I'm sure you know her well? Wink Laughing Cool ... Guidelines/Specifics not necessary my dear - feel free to wax lyrical as you always do, and more power to you! You know your literature & philosophy, and that is only part of what I hope might be a very interesting thread ... OK, I couldn't resist it - I'm presently reading Barney Hoskyns' 'Waiting for the Sun' - an enjoyably twisted history of LA music - I KNOW you'd enjoy it (if only you would give books a chance!!!)
This (i.e. the book) started me off ...

So over to you, you Raven Minx ...

Why, reactiv8? I always apologize when I'm in the wrong - sometimes, it needs pointing out, though... Wink It wasn't me... Neutral

The only thing I really enjoy about the '50s is tiki kitsch, unfortunately... Neutral

Shame ... reactivating (?) what I have already mentioned, I still think this decade had a lot of style, which has been oft copied & usually badly too ...
Ultimately, just about everything is kitsch, surely? Wink

Yes, because the New Critics of the 1920s, and the Russian Formalists of the 1930s, were picking daisies and smoking weed when they denied the author any authority in shaping a reader's literary interpretation. Wink

The 50's didn't just have style Cool Style emerged from the era and the fragments of formality, ettiquete and a phenomenon we call elegance. fleeting in glimpses, head rushes

todays style seems to be about breaking with tradition, last week that was all part of a growing difference Rolling Eyes

I don't know about 1959 and all that, I like the depth of reference but does it mention how the lyrics have a rounded, ballad-like quality?

maybe that's what I mostly like about them...
