DrugCrazed Singing Songs You Don't Agree With (63* d) RE: Singing Songs You Don't Agree With 21 Oct 11


"Why did you go to see Roy Bailey ? he has been singing left wing and socialist songs for many many years, this is what he is known for, why did you go and see him if you don't like what he sings?"

I saw him do 2 songs when I saw Sam Carter last month, and I liked his method of delivery. Although I don't agree with the message of his songs, he doesn't slap you in the face with it in his introduction (much). I don't agree with the lyrics, but I do still appreciate the song for what it is. Plus Martin Simpson was there, and I enjoy getting angry over the fact he's better than me.

Old Git: It seems to me that it's a song that is calling for a change, and hopes it will happen. I can't write out my thoughts in a coherent fashion, I need more caffeine before I attempt it.

Diva: The problem is that I like a lot of the songs, but the message isn't one I agree with.

I'm not right wing (as I understand the notion of right wing). I'm not miles away from the socialist perspective, but I'm not close either.
