Thread Name: Who's Eric Bogle?
Subject: RE: Who´s Eric Bogle?
Thank you so much, Nynia! This is going to help a lot. 'Nobody's Moggy' cannot have been written by a cat lover! It always makes me glad I don't have to worry too much about cars where I and my FSO (feline significant other ...) live.
Dan, I didn't mean to say Eric's songs are shallow or anything - certainly not. His war trilogy and 'My Youngest Son' in particular are deeply felt. However, his style is usually very down-to-earth - concrete images that trigger emotions and speculation on the listeners' part, perhaps, but keep their feet solidly on the ground. 'Reason' seemed very different to me - a dialogue between two worlds, or two layers of our world, thus leaving the solid ground. - Susanne
