No i don't relate to it and the sound is unusual to me. I do not understand the meaning of it. I can only imagine it is about senseless killing and madness around these war vets. Shrug. Not my thing but i totally respect that many xers like it.

You don't understand and I am not surprised.  Consider yourself fortunate.

The GIs stared into the abyss during the Second World War and for many of those who survived there was something to look forward to as history records.  For Generation X that was never true even though many of us stared into the abyss at all to young of an age and knew that it was only a dress rehearsal for what was to come.  No matter what we did there would be no victory and survival was only temporary at best.  No matter what in the end there would be no victory.

Yeah i think we take out of songs what we put in them. This proves I am no xer at all pretty much. I did not see that in this song. Just the literal image as i cannot relate at all to that despair as I always try to solve issues and with it look for a bright side to a problem.

Art often is a reflection of what is already there.  This movie is very much a reflection of the the time and the people who it was targeted for.  One of the reasons that Eric the Obtuse hates third turning music is because it is a reflections of the consequences of their actions.  Something most of them can't face and so they pretend it doesn't exist.  That was never an option for me and most of my contemporaries.

Yes and no because quite often i have created something and people interpret in a way which made me look twice at my work Because even i had no intended it to have a meaning that someone else got out of it. Which always fascinates meas it tells me something about that person. Not sure as to why he hates that music. Maybe he just has certain tastes. Who knows. I also like him like my happier upbeat music...but that was the era i grew up in and it is nostalgic for me. However i have grown to like music that would make his hair fall out too! For me i am a mix of both. Happier music helps me to relax and remember good times and the other helps me to understand the current misery i am going through with my mother's debt and the recession hitting NZ hard as well as the earthquake disaster that is ongoing here.

Xers tended, and often still do, oscillate between the light and dark side of their experience.  This is from the lighter side.

He knows why he doesn't like it but he can't face the reason for its existence.  It would require more exposure to reality than he can ever deal with.

Well I tried to explain to him why it is necessary for it to sound the way that it sounds but he either did not understand or just puts his taste before everything else. He wanted to make it more "beautiful and melodic." I said that would take away the point to the songs. Smdh. It amazes me that he too is an artist like myself but does not understand this. He truly is an idealist. I mean I may not understand the meaning to something an xer would understand like earlier...but at least i understand the sound, image and feel to the song is portraying a message that wants to be heard and understood (as well as what we individually can interpret to mean).

Even the Moody Blues went a bit dark during that time.  They could never manage Blue Oyster Cult levels because they just didn't have it in them.

Remember the demographic they were trying to appeal to at the time.  Happy sixties optimism just wasn't going to work with people dealing with the consequences of what he sees as idealism.  Eric the Obtuse is a tyrant who doesn't have the stones to admit what he is.  People and art are simply objects to be molded to his desires.  As a former Buddhist monk I know is fond of saying, "Desire is the root of all evil."

Perhaps this will give you a bit better feel of the zeitgeist of the time without the rather dark imagery of Blue Oyster Cult.  These guys were somewhat off the wall for the time.

Well I dunno tbh i think he may just be stubborn and think his way is the right way in all things including music. I hate to think of him as a tyrant. I would not go that far but that is just me. But lets just enjoy the music as he will see this and will turn a good thread into a squabble fest.
