Interpretation is so wide between listener and song writer sometimes..
Even between writer and Co- writer believe or not..
The song i was listening to today or what i am making reference to is Bryan Adams
"The summer of 69"
Adams say it's a song about making love in the summer time and has nothing to do with the year 69,according to wiki ... ?
His co- Writer say it's not ð The guy who wrote the lyrics with him and he disagree on it's meaning..Isnt that strange ?
It's funny,two people wrote this song which is not uncommon, but both assumed a different grass route from the lyrics..Jim Valance says it was written in reference to a year.The summer of 69..
But looking at the lyrics youd think it was about a man who reminisced the year 69..Probably agreeing more so with Valance than the guy who sung it and also wrote the lyrics.
so who gives a ð ..although many listeners will disagree to a songs lyrics and meaning,but few writers disagree and have different perceptions which is unusual.
Just interesting thats all.
i thought it was a remembering a good time song.
Your right though about the perception part. Its why we cant agree with anyone else most of the time. Also i think its where that whole "soul mate" dream came from. Someone that thinks like them and can sleep with what a concept. Do i believe in it? Not with my understanding of difference in perception. But it has its good points we never get bored with one another.
