|Ha ha, dignity in whose eyes? From the point of view of serious music, if you like anything in the pop field, you ain't got no dignity, bro! You might just as well throw dignity to the Four Winds, and pretend to like The W____s!|
I agree with you in one respect, though: I never try to make myself like anything. "Santa Maria" and "Amber Light" had immediate appeal for me, and still do; they're among my top 10 MO pieces!
Oh, I only bother about dignity in my own eyes. I have my own, arbitrarily set of standards and I damn arbitrarily follow them! I reject the right not to follow my standards! Or, better yet, I reject the right not to have the right to follow my standards!
Urgh. I'm talking like the two philosophers from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, now.
Amber Light is actually one of the tracks from that album that I have no problem with. Santa Maria, though, annoys me -- it sorts of wanders around in circles, but very loudly and very pompously. Yeah, I know that Santa Maria, Santa Maria and Santa Maria Santa Maria, and Santa Maria, Santa Maria and Santa Maria. I get the message. I guess.
