Hater Rant

Tell me how you really feel.

Dr. Nada Surf

I was listening to the mediocre Pete Yorn play the mediocre free at noon concert on 88.5, when afterwards, a song came on that had the lyrics:

“But Always Love… Hate will get you every time
Always Love… Even when you want to fight”

Which got me thinking. . . why the hell are musicians giving us psychiatric help? The last time I checked, it wasn’t Dr. Nada Surf singing this song. Who are they to tell me what I should be feeling? Are they going to suggest what milligram dosage of Paxil I should be taking too?

I started googling other dogmatic song lyrics, and have found that it is not just forgotten alt bands of the 90s that are spouting out unwarranted advice.

Frou Frou says:

“music is worthless unless it can make a complete stranger, break down and cry”

I don’t think it counts if I’m crying because Natalie Portman is so goddamn annoying in Garden State, because that’s the only time i’ve cried listening to Frou Frou.

Hair style genius himself, Ludwig Van Beethoven, said:

“Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.”

Thanks for the philosophical advice about how philosophy is worse than music.

The Beatles had it right when they asked:

All the lonely people, where do they all come from? / All the lonely people, where do they all belong?

They asked a question, and didn’t even answer it. John was probably like “bloody hell, fuck if i know where all the lonely people come from. Cheerio.”
