I love the song John Wayne Gacy, Jr. by Sufjan Stevens. It's a very deep song.

And I've been listening to this song a lot lately. I agree that it's deep.

I can't really pinpoint what the song is exactly about, but I have a few ideas.

My interpretation is probably garbage, but whatevs.

 

Basically he's saying, we vilify people like Gacy and don't bother noting that most of the time he was a perfectly decent person outwardly, but if you looked inside he was a demented man full of emotional and psychological issues. Basically he says that we are too concerned with appearances, and if it looks pretty then anything hidden below is something we consider unimportant, when it is the most important thing.

 

tl;dr Stevens' message is "don't judge a book by its cover"

My idea is that Stevens says that Gacy was a normal person. He says "when the swingset his head," and that might be when Gacy became who he was, and that he was twisted. It also sort of gives the message that how he grew up wasn't too great.

 

I also feel like Stevens states that we all have a dark side, and that we should all embrace it when he says "and on my best behavior, I am really just like him."

Was enjoying Saint John by Cold War Kids earlier. Also Over by Johan is quite good (I get the feeling I posted that on the old thread though).

 

My friend sent me Don't Gimme That by Aloha From Hell and it's ok, not always my cup of tea but something I like listening to right now.

Well that would clash pretty severely with his personal philosophies. If you don't really know what I'm getting at, David Crowder (a Christian praise artist) has covered a Sufjan Stevens song (Oh God, Where Are You Now?), which is one of Stevens' explicitly Christian songs. I think what Stevens is saying, now that I've thought about it a bit more, is that we all do wrong, we all commit sins, but we don't realize that we're really no different from the serial killer. Ours are either just not as gruesome or not as obvious.

 

Also, Animals As Leaders pl0x. Take BULB and make him kinda chill and add a li'l pot and you have Animals As Leaders. This shizzle is awesome.

Dayum, kids these days have terrible taste, aka metal.

I'm sorry, I'm just so biased against metal.

It's the indie kyptonite.

 

Regretted post.

Everything about it, I just don't like. I don't get the appeal really.

It's kind of an ignorant thing to say... am I'm sorry. >:

Well, I don't really get the appeal of indie. Everyone likes different music, and everyone looks for different characteristics in a good band that they want to listen to.

Metal doesn't really appeal to me, I haven't really given it a chance either. I prefer slower paced music, and this album (Battle Studies) by John Mayer is just gold.

Not true, me and my friend listen to a lot of indie but there's a bit of metal I quite like. :huh:

I don't see the appeal of indie; I will stick with the required creativity and intellect essential in understanding metal however.

Why do people feel the need to judge other's taste in music? Does it affect you personally?

 

I listen to my music for me. I like what I like. But I'm also very open-minded to other's recommendations. I'm not gonna shoot something down before I even give it a good listen.

It's common knowlege that most of the population doesn't appreciate metal because they cannot understand or interpret the intricate rythms and creativity within the music. Same as classical music and progressive rock for that matter.

 

I don't appreciate people making stereotypes of musical genres without any merits.

 

 

 

Sorry.

 

What are your favorite concept albums, guise?

Pink Floyd's or Dream Theater's.
