It's about whatever the composer wants it to be about.

Some musicians take more pride in lyrics and making statements than they do about music, others write songs to showcase instrumental/vocal talent, and others are equally interested in each facet.

Also, to the fan - it's what the fan wants it to be about. Perception is everything. I find it hard to rattle off song names even on my favourite albums, because I listen to the guitars and don't pay much attention to the lyrics. My mates, not being huge guitar fans, do th eopposite.

There is no such thing as "it's about this, and not about that".

Notice the smiley in the corner? It was a tongue in cheek post.

But your response does raise a talking point.

I find a lot of people bagging heavy music, but when challenged they can't name any examples of when they have heard it. How can anyone say they don't like what they haven't heard?

I'm exposed to a lot of R&B music at work, having certain radio stations forced upon the work floor. An 8 hour intake, probably three days a week for most ofthe last three years, I think is enough qualification for me to state that it's rubbish. Not to mention the fact that I can play guitar, keyboards and bass, and know a little bit about what music requires skill and what music doesn't.
