    Re: Song Analysis

    The feelings related in the song are common with break ups. He's dealing with loss. Most people recover from them.

    Take the song Too Many Fish in the Sea for example.

    ETA: I doubt this is an actual event. I think it's just a song he came up with. Though i'm sure he'd had his share of lost love. We all have.

    Must have been subliminal, because the writer doesn't recognise it as such.

    I would not know. I have not gone off enquiring. I merely red the words and that's what they say.

    My reactions are outdated, I'll grant you that. I watched University Challenge this week. The announcer said "Asking the questions" and I responded "Bamber Gascoigne" from habit. 1987 he stopped, I just checked.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    When you're happy you feel the Music.
    When you're sad you feel the Lyric.

    Too bad we can't get more participation in this thread, it could be a fun and interesting one.

    Oh those Bee Gees!

    I saw an interview with Barry Gibbs where he said that there was a fierce competition between the brothers and not writting a song within a given time period would cost membership to the band.

    I wouldn't disagree.....entirely.
    But......music evokes an emotional response, most happy lyrics are linked to happy music, and visa versa.
    So....a happy tune can lift you with no words involved, the opposite with a somber melody.
    Some music can even arouse nationalistic pride.......against all logic of the listener.
