I spent hours today listening to and reading the lyrics of the current Billboard Hot 100. Every generation has it’s spokespersons. Musicians are often viewed as spokespersons of their generation. I was looking for insight and wisdom.
What I found were some very common themes.
Today I’ll share these.
Lessons From The Top
Life has no meaning.
Life is short; play and party hard.
Don’t waste time searching for meaning. Life is random and painful; get high or suffer through it.
Payback and revenge make wrongs right.
I can find meaning through fun, fame, cars, jewelry, etc.
Life has meaning if you are having sex; lots of it.
My life had meaning, but my lover left me.
Since I was screwed by others I have to live angry and/or unhappy.
Other people’s lives have meaning, but mine doesn’t, can’t and won’t.
I was looking for signs of life.
I did find some. I’ll share those tomorrow.
