Re: Female Narrator

That phrase "some things are better left unspoken" just hit the wrong way, is all and I misunderstood it. It sounded like something was hush hushed and I should leave it alone. My apologies. "Just listen, don't think about it" didn't even occur to me. And, actually, for me "...

Re: Female Narrator

Really? The problem with "it" being unspoken is, frankly, I have no idea what you might mean and that may be worse than what you're insinuating. Huh? All I'm suggesting is that these are some of his most wonderful songs and his ability to take that point of view is really interesting and, ...

Female Narrator

Apologies in advance if this is a repeat topic. I'm just thinking about Elvis songs that he has recorded who have a female narrator. Not sure what I have to say except that the utter emotional beauty of some of these is quite amazing. For a long time, Elvis has written long, sometimes rambling melod...

Re: The Complete Armed Forces (Super Deluxe Edition)

For me, it may be that 'the times' make it hard for me to take any more "aggressive provocation." And, I think, those comics are not aggressively provocative. They are very limp and make the aggressive provocations of Armed Forces seem, well, limper. I dare say that I wish he or his design...

I find his own artwork garish and exaggerated and distorted and nightmarish enough to make the "point" about objectification without being objectifying. In fact, it is why I like his own visual work so much -- actually makes me feel queasy [word of the day!] about the male gaze in don't lo...

I think that this is one of his best vocals ever, and a melody to match. And the background vocals near the end -- the melodies they are singing, and the sound...beautiful.
