Um....I did? A page ago. You're late.
Ugh Why are LP such sad fuckers? Write something happy for once.
There's enough happy music out there, especially in the mainstream, it doesn't really achieve the same level of emotion and substance as 'sad' (which is actually more realistic) music.
Why should I care? You know when the article talks about LP, they just think it's only Mike and Chester.
The "same level of emotion"? What does that mean?
I meant that a lot of 'happy' music doesn't have as solid an emotional impact, or harbour as much emotion in it's lyrics, vocals, melody etc as darker music.
I think that that's just you being unable to find a personal emotional connection with certain positive lyrics or songs
i think this is my problem with all this music tbh. I have no connection to it
I can find a connection with positive lyrics, but too many positive songs just feel like the lyrics harbour superficial emotion, for example by using words that make life sound better than it really is.
I hope it's good. I'm not digging ALTNC.
Actually, he got a point. It is proven (can get sources if needed) that sadness is a stronger force than happiness. This is due to the fact that we often take happiness for granted. No matter who you are, sadness is a stronger emotion once it happens.
I'm not, however, saying that you cannot connect with happy music.
Oh, I actually know this! We linger on and hold onto negative emotions in order to try and learn from them.
But I still don't necessarily relate expressions of positive feelings to a "lack" of emotion, nor do I feel that expressions of positive sentiments inherently lack substance.
pmsl....in the same key
