In response to Sistersledge's comment:
See? I told you the Democrats are the party of all things death related. They even have a soundtrack.
Touch of Gray... in the top ten hits of the Grateful Dead
catch phrase...." I will get by"
Look at the video. No "death images" skeeter. Listen to the lyrics. Lyrics are a poem paired with music.
And I daresay, more than a few posters here now have a "touch of gray" by now, to say the least. As for my esteemed male posters, maybe no hair to have grey in it by now perhaps. Not that there is anything wrong with that.
The other major GD image was that of Teddy Bears...not the skull and roses. Guess which one I preferred?
<Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good.>
skeeter...I learned to listen to the lyrics of new songs long age. I even looked up the lyrics to read without the music playing. Some singers and groups and their songs I might have dismissed outright were not. I stopped sterotping I hope for good. I am a musician first. You want some of what I studied to perform, you got it, You will get opera and symphonies, etc. as well as classic jazz. [ps permormances usually had to wear a white blouse and long black skirt, except for the jazz :)]
I would have missed out on SO much if I had not done this. Even listen to some country singers and songs.
That sound like your sterotyped idea of a liberal Democrat?
