Well let me be the one to "rekindle" this thread back to life... there could be a link to music thematic with LP's for instance that would ignite a powerfull surge of emotions as well as stimulate the mind. But I would gladly stick to certain LP's that bring existential motifc than whole bands to distinguish from the rest. For instance a couple to begin with from a band I adore..
Pawn Heartshttp://www.gaudela.net/vdgg/covers/pa... This was compiled from a book he wrote for "the humane condition" one might say and turned into music in less than a week. from scribblings they wrote while re-touring Milan and the rest of Italy in an attempt to "cash in" of their unforseen stardom there. But it is really interesting to look upon closely, as he compares humanes to lemmings pushing down the slope (much more actually , but I forgeet and can't bring myself to look upon the lyrics atm)World Record http://eil.com/images/main/Van+Der+Gr... -Refugees Again about the Universal bond of humans.. and how they get strayed <"our apologies to those who will never know the way"> all humanity is described as refugees .. going to the ideal "West" It brings a jolt down my spine every tmre I hear this tune -What would Robert have said out of words for that one. . . But I keep reminding myself that he must be mentioning Opi = Openheimer [ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lb13yn... ] I could as well be mistaken -After the flood Just try out the lyrics, its self explanatory
Well Robert I beg to differ... And let me add, that I dont see any underlying premise, esoteric or otherwise in REM songs. I am sure Feliks has his own songs, to which he listens to, and gains some satisfaction. Now in regards to certain forms of music, if that makes one a snob, that´s a small price to pay , if U are to keep yr taste in a current level. You might want also to recall that we are leaving in weird times, where there is a dropping on all genres, of culture, music included, wouldnt U agree;
In any case although this one might get lost amidst this confusion, and uninterested listeners, here is a song, that I do blv adheres to be tagged as a trully existentialist song.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hKlHYX... I would be really glad if one of you out there would listen to it, and share his POV with the rest of us out there.
