Compare & Contrast

Guys used to write this sort of lyrics:
It is the springtime of my loving-the second season I am to know
You are the sunlight in my growing - so little warmth I've felt before.
It isn't hard to feel me glowing - I watched the fire that grew so low.

It is the summer of my smiles - flee from me Keepers of the Gloom.
Speak to me only with your eyes. It is to you I give this tune.
Ain't so hard to recognize - These things are clear to all from time to time.

Talk Talk Talk Talk - I've felt the coldness of my winter
I never thought it would ever go. I cursed the gloom that set upon us...
But I know that I love you so

These are the seasons of emotion and like the winds they rise and fall

This is the wonder of devotion - I seek the torch we all must hold.
This is the mystery of the quotient - Upon us all, upon us all a little rain must fall...It's just a little rain...
Two decades later (1992), pop lyrics were met with this unrelated song:

What happened? Where did all that rage come from? What harshed the mellow? It couldn't have been Bush II. I blame bad parenting. Have I pointed out how Tom Morello and Barack Obama had nearly the same pedigree?


  1. Maybe it's the drugs?

    "My advice to people today is as must turn on, tune in, and drop out." - Timothy Leary - "There are three side effects of acid: enhanced long-term memory, decreased short-term memory, and I forget the third."

    1992 was a big year for angel dust and methamphetamine.

    "Ends, some people will rob their mother
    For the ends, rats snitch on one another
    For the ends, sometimes kids get murdered
    For the ends, so before we go any further
    I want my ends " - Whitey Ford (Everlast)

  2. Maybe it's the drugs?

    Maybe cannibalism will go mainstream in lyrics and become acceptable.

    Baby, Baby, don't get hooked on me,
    'cause I'll just chew you then I'll set you free...

  3. The gladiatorial games caught on in modern cinema, so why not?

    Did you hear about the cannibal who passed his friend in the jungle????

  4. Did you hear about the cannibal who passed his friend in the jungle????

    I'm through with you, he said.

  5. He wasn't in any condition to receive another ass chewing.

  6. Songs before are written by sensitive guys. They're from the heart but now songs are shallow. You can't even relate to it and feel the meaning behind the songs. Its just so disappointing.
