“I can’t help my foolish Pride; the day you left I up and died…”

 

It may seem, to many, an inconsistency why men that write/perform weepy love songs of loss and pain get more kitty than the SPCA.

Well, to my few loyal readers, I’m going to tell you why that is.

1} Preselection = The musicians are stating clearly, sans braggadocio, that they can get – and have gotten – women. The self–effacing delivery actually bolsters credibility in certain circumstances and art is one of them.

 

2} Every woman sees herself in every other. They are built that way. Therefore, she sees that if one woman won the artist’s heart so deeply and powerfully, she could, too.

 

3} The song and its message demonstrate the capability and willingness of the artist to heavily invest emotionally in a woman while not professing such obsequiously and directly to the female listener. This indirect method is the very way women communicate, thus it is immediately understood.

 

In short, wise musicians know that the songs of unrequited love they pen and perform are never Truly for the woman that inspired them.

The enchanting [I choose that word very carefully]  melodies are, in reality, for the next beautiful, young woman to come along.

  1. The women all want to be that next love song, that next poem, that next inspiration (muse?).

  2. Every woman sees herself in every other. They are built that way. Therefore, she sees that if one woman won the artist’s heart so deeply and powerfully, she could, too.

    Yes, this is true, but more than that. We do not want to see ourselves in every other. We want to be better. So, it motivates us to win his heart even more deeply than the woman who won it before us.

    I’ve wondered the very same thing and this is the answer right here.

  4. Musicians are hard to resist. Music somehow reaches into a part of our psyche and connects us in a deep way to people and ideas.

  5. Ever since the red pill I get music much better now. I used to listen to the lyrics and think superficially about them…now I take the lyrics on a wild journey into my mind and create a whole new story about them.

    And once men start thinking this way…you communicate and listen to women very effectively.

  6. You overlooked talent.

    Takes big brass ones to get on a stage in front of a bunch of people you don’t know and sing a song.

    It also takes natural gifting, knowhow, and years of practice.

    Most people are simply completely unable to do this.

    • Deti,

      When you put it that way, I have never given myself enough credit.

      I’ve performed countless times, both in bands and doing stand–up comedy.

      Thanks, sincerely, for pointing that out.

      While I’ve always given myself credit for my intellect/investigative abilities, I have always felt my other accomplishments were things any man could do.

      • I imagine you don’t give yourself enough credit as you should for fear of being seen as a braggart giving too much credit.

        Giving yourself as much credit as due is not bragging, though there are ways to go about it and ways not to. Defaulting to knowing it without having to share that you know, is always a good way to start.
