This song will obviously improve your quality of life or I wouldn’t have posted it.
I’ve never watched the video, this is best played in the background.
When I was in college, I went to a mewithoutYou concert and the band played this song for, if I remember what they said properly, the first time. That version used to be posted online. Seems to be gone. But it’s a great song
If I had written it back in the days when I wrote a lot of poetry, I’d have probably included some lines about Amnon, Absalom, Joab, Jonathan, and Saul. But it’s not my song. Nevertheless, it is a marvelous work of art. There’s a weird thing with the timeline of David’s life in the song, but that’s okay. It’s worth a listen and then ten more. I hope you enjoy it.
This is a great song.
Of the two, neither is good. But both are entertaining:
The first is somewhat controversial, but it’s essentially a guy giving a ted-talk as a ridiculous caricature of certain segments of the college type. For instance, he voices his (not real) support of euthanasia with this line, “In 2070, there won’t be any old or sick people, cause WE’RE JUST GONNA KILL ‘EM.” It’s definitely worth a listen if you like wry humour.
On the other hand, and I’ve posted it before, there’s Anarchy Road by Carpenter Brut. This vision of 2070 is of a world essentially destroyed by a combination of the managerial state and indiscriminate consumption.
