He doesn't want to be our waterboy. He's saying farewell, I think, though he doesn't say why. "Obama ain't about foolin around". Maybe something about Robert Bork.

Should there be standards for message songs? :D

Night Krawler Blues

5/4/2009 1:04:25 AM

Yes,it is the key of E minor, and goes down to D then C back D and has bridge too and other cool stuff like a pretty good guitar lead thing and the water boy is relating to being a servant to others and how some people are more inclined to help others with out a need for being acknowledged. Cosmic Mirror I guess refers to some mystical thing how we might be reflecting out our light to others through serving?
Some people need filling some are the fillers of others peoples spirits.
What do you think

I think Steve is reflecting his appreciation to all here via the song. it seems a song of thankfulness and appreciation

5/4/2009 1:04:42 AM

No, I haven't listened to it yet. I thought I'd pull a 'Bluto' and pop in to jack with somebody. However, when I DO check out the song, I don't see that I owe you an explanation of what the piece means to me. The listener will interpret a 'message' according as much to what they bring to it, as what is stated in the lyric. From what I can tell, the main reason you grok nothing from a 'message' song is because you bring very little to the table.

VERY little.

Maybe you should've listened before you made such judgments.

Fake Bluto, he sings that he doesn't want to be waterboy, that sounds resentful to me.

My statement remains valid, regardless of what you think the lyric means, or the music evokes in you.

Do you think it's blasphemy to ask an artist what the point of their song is?

Add Comment


5/4/2009 1:40:11 AM

No. But I believe you'd have a better chance of getting a satisfactory answer if you asked instead of demanded. Personally, I wouldn't tell you the time.

When I was managing a music club in upstate new york, I got a unique (well, unique for me anyway) perspective on the music scene/the music biz.

I met and shook hands with quite a few wellknown artists including john phillips, a lovely guy, richie havens, a lovely guy, dave mason, dave bromberg, maria muldaur, rick danko (who played new years day for free a couple years, to bolster the club), jerry jeff walker, shawn colvin, to name a few.

I like to imagine I could feel their electricity (their passion for their music,their art), and a small part of their electricity passed to me, in a way.

anyway, that was many years ago...

kinda like a circus...acts would come and go...in the limelight for a few hours, only to transform into every day human beings after the show, or the next day...

I loved em all...well tom paxton was alittle iffy...

john phillips, rick danko, richie havens and jerry jeff walker were perhaps my favs.

billy preston was iffy...

oh yeah don cherry, a jazz musician, came up with the new school of jazz on a weekend, was really memorable, played a coronet to the wee hours, a little pocket trumpet...

Hi, Steve - I've derived inspiration and enjoyment from plenty of folks around here too, including you, and am pleased to know the reverse is true. I'm not in a position to listen right now (nasty laptop speakers) but will be back for a listen. Am in a largely offline condition these days, so am glad I encountered this thread in a timely fashion...keep on rockin' everybody...

Silverdood, good to hear from you. You wanna read a far out book, called 'hyperspace' by michio kaku. according to string theory, we live in a 10D (or 11D) universe, 4D is the usual perceived, so 6D out there (or in there) waiting to be explored. string theory says that all matter is basically vibrations from tiny vibrating strings. very musical.

developing an understanding about science is a good balance...for an 'edgy' artistic soul, who depends on inspiration...or so it seems at the moment...
