GUEST,JennyO Why Do We Like Depressing Music? (80* d) RE: Why Do We Like Depressing Music? 17 Jan 04

Looks like I'm a guest here for a few days. My computer had a major problem (possibly a weird new virus, a workmate of my son thinks) which resulted in my having to get a new motherboard. So I'm on John's computer, which seems very old and slow by comparison. But it's only for a few days anyway. And the seat height and setup is all wrong (grumble grumble) - maybe a depressing song about that?

Anyway, I remembered a time a couple of years ago when my then singing partner and I were singing "Past Caring" which is extremely depressing and wrist-slashing, at a friend's BBQ. There were people sitting around a fire. Two people we know, who are famous for dropping off to sleep wherever they go, chose this moment to do this, and as one of them started to tip in her chair, her husband, who was also dropping off, started to tip sideways too. They slid like dominoes, in slow motion, right in front of us. It was so funny we cracked up - right in the middle of the song - and totally destroyed the moment. Probably just as well - you need a little light relief after that song.
