    That's interesting. I love that group!
    So what do you think about I Started A Joke?

    Music is often appreciated because of the mood it invites. There's nothing wrong with that. In fact there's nothing wrong with any reason one listens to music. I used to enjoy listening to the Bee Gees as well.

    One moment...




    Annotated song lyric... Smash Flops: Driving Through Mythical America

    - you can hear the song at Pete Atkin sings "Driving Through Mythical America"
    Very localised song, made absolutely no sense to me.

    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.
    Beyond the wire, would be one of those songs. Used in many instances.
    Or evoking high spirit with Dolly Partons' "dumb blonde"
    Or "Johnsons aeroplane" by INXS. Or their song "the voices" which was banned in many countries.

    Ooh ohh! She moved through the fair. ( if you can get the original lyrics.

    I always thought it was about a young woman and man who were forbidden to marry because one of them wasnt right in the head. In the endthe young man is questioned over her death and she haunts him. My guess was she was the one with the mental illness, killed herself in the lake but because she is from a upper class family and they dont want to admit to her suicide. Others ive discussed this song with say otherwise

    That's seems to be as good as any other meaning that might be applied to the lyrics.
