I did not know that Brian May was a Doctor of Astrophysics…

 


I think I'd rather be a guitar player!  :)

anyway, the potential of what Russia is trying to do through the currency situation brought a certain tune to mind:



I'm confused Epitaph...

how does 'anyone' take a very popular song written and performed in honor of the life and death of Buddy Holly...

an all time great American musician...

and somehow 'twist' it into something supposedly about a very modern international political situation?


I'll give you Kudos for posting the song...   an all time favorite of mine as a GI by the way.

It was released late in the fall of 71 while I was in AIT at Ft. McClellan, AL! 

There was a much, much more unpopular political 'unrest' situation at home here in our country at the time and no one (at least that I ever heard of) even thought of attempting to 'twist' the lyrics into something for political gain in our own situation...

and to consider it now is still a travesty in my music luvin' opinion :o :o :o

I do find it 'odd' that someone with a user name of Epitaph (meaning:  a phrase or statement written in memory of a person who has died, esp. as an inscription on a tombstone) would attempt to malign the name and memory of one of our greatest performers of days gone by.

For those unaware of the 'true meaning' of Don McLean's tribute it was for and about the life and death of the legend 'Buddy Holly'!!!

Here's some reading for you and anyone else that has ever tried to manipulate the meaning of this American 'Classic'...

If you have trouble with reading comprehension here's a YouTube for you:

Epitaph...   as much as I support your 'freedom of speech' please take your opinions to the politics board...  I'm sure it will be much better received over there...   this is just not the 'right' place for this type of a post >:( >:( >:(

Tunes and songs can have different meanings to different people of different generations. Depends on the context of a person's thoughts when they hear a certain tune as to what, if anything they relate it to. I happened to hear American Pie on the radio just before the story regarding the Russia / Dollar info and it made me think of how the America would be affected if something like that were to occur, and thought I would share the context.

I'm sure the tunes Painted Black, Fortunate Son, and No Satisfaction bring to mind certain thoughts or memories to others as well. For you to be offended because I associated american Pie with a current political or world situation and presented that as to why I was thinking about the song seems a little petty. Ill try not to chew bbl gum or burp to loud lest I offend in the future.

If I have anything "political" or otherwise to share, I will do so in the proper forum so as not to get anyone's ire in a bundle.

"Epitaph" is a statement regarding someone or something who has died or otherwise passed on. My use it is personal; re: my business.

To forum member "Epitaph" for mentioning the lyrics of this song:

May be what happened to the other libs as well.

I guess disabling the report to admin link only on the lib side was indicative of the slanted games they play.

Edited to add:

This is the only way to answer some of the questions posed:

1) I did nothing to warrant the banishment, it's political.

2) It's the router that's blocked but considering all the nonsense right-wing games being played by those running the site...it's just not worth it to bypass the banishment block.

3) The moron stalkers from MT contemplating a visit will be considered a threat and can expect to have a bad day if they act upon those idiotic thoughts.

Seems I forgot the dedication for this. It goes out to Mr. Obama and the "Yes We Can Crowd"

I'd like to dedicate this to the right-wing conservative liars on this forum. The most deserving are the hypocritical nimrods that were quick to point fingers when BW embellished his personal experiences...which didn't mean a thing to anybody...yet those right-wingers unapologetically parrot the same old conservative lies. So to the sheep that lack the ability to think critically...and even lack the will to check whether or not something is true...this tune was made for you:
