And now, Instance No. 537 of A Song That Was Personally Meaningful to Me, That Was All Mixed Up With Adolescence and Coming of Age and First Love and All the Joy and Heartbreak of Youth, That Stupid Fuckheads Have Now Turned Into A Commercial:
Chet Powers' Get Together:
Love is but a song we sing and fear's the way we die, You can make the mountains ring or make the angels cry, Though the bird is on the wing and you may not know why.
C'mon people, now smile on your brother, everybody get together, try to love one another right now.
It was on the first Jefferson Airplane album. Now it's a Red Lobster commercial.
WHAT KIND OF VICIOUS CRAZED GIANT LIZARD WOULD THINK THIS SONG HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH SEAFOOD?!?!?!
Okay, I'm calmer now. Yeah, I know, these lyrics give new meaning to the word 'sappy'. But dammit, they meant something to me.
== eien == eternity
|This character was originally a pictograph of the confluence of a tributary and a larger river. It apparently meant 'long' with reference to a large river system. Henshall suggests remembering it by association with 'water' (水) and 'ice' (氷) and as a mnemonic: 'Water looks icy for a long time.'|
