In the air tonight – song meaning
This is a song meaning review. Phil Collins said, “I wrote the lyrics spontaneously. I’m not quite sure what the song is about, but there’s a lot of anger, a lot of despair and a lot of frustration.” – the emotional content is obvious to most people. The issue andRead More
Pre-determinants – your ignorance is bliss.
For some time I’ve been occupied with things that pre-determine what we think or do. I’ve often referred to patterns and cultures as pre-determinative. Then I looked into attitudes. As I go on, I think more about this. The uneducated and dim will obviously baulk at all this. After all,Read More
