the death metal guys tend appeal to the opposite spectrum.

there's a point where rock moves away from witchcraft into full-on black majick (with the latter being far more taxing on the soul).

now, shall I begin an incantation to get that stain off yr shirt, or would you just like a towel?

Funny how the liberating qualities that I enjoy in some music (rock, punk) are the first things to go.

I chose dancing because I love to dance. I can dance alone or with the ladies or with large, sweaty groups of homosexual men.

I think it's quite interesting how music can be a medium for the different emotions, sometimes even complex emotions and yet, it can also serve as more of a philosophical piece of art, which I believe to have greater significance.
The philosophical aspect of a piece of music is more obvious when it is used in the context of film, where music is played to directly or indirectly represent the action happening in a particular scene.

Slightly off topic, but I found this interesting and kind of clarifies my point a little:
"The other horror music code which has emerged is what I call the sublime, and can also be found in every John Carpenter film. In Halloween (1978), Carpenter uses Laurie's Theme to evoke the chill of Halloween, as Laurie (Jamie Lee Curtis) walks home from school... the autumn leaves are blowing, children are playing in the distance, Michael is waiting behind the hedge. Laurie's Theme is not scary, it is haunting. Why? There is nothing intrinsic to the music which scares us; there is no discordance, no harshness. It is a minor piece, but if one listens to it out of context, it could easily represent a labor leader stoically taking the fifth instead of representing a psycopathic serial killer who cannot be stopped."

Going back to my original point, the psychological and philosophical aspects of music, (not just in film music) fuel my interest, fuels my interest in rock music.

Hence a poll... Music is inherently psychological, both in its enjoyment and appreciation and in its creation. There's just something so jungian about a person fiercely clinging onto a large piece of wood in thier hands, while simultaneously screaming and shoving a longish, cylindrical object into their mouths...

yeah ok, I suppose the thing I most enjoy about rock music is the intensity produced through drums and electric instruments, aggression delivered by subhuman brutality.

Sex, drugs and image is just enough to get you by in the real world...


I chose dance. Which can be very sexual no matter how you look at it.
