The Most Philosophical Song You Ever Heard


This may be a little too deeply personal for some, so reader discretion is advised. Don't know the reason, stayed here all season. Nothing to show but this brand new tattoo. But it's a real beauty, a Mexican cutie. How it got here I haven't a clue.
Blew out my flip-flop, stepped on a pop top, cut my heel had to cruise on back home. But there's booze in the blender and soon it will render that frozen concoction that helps me hang on.

(Some people claim that there's a woman to blame. But I know it's my own damn fault.)
Terrible song, and I don't see any philosophical message either. I guess you're just funning us. I guess.
Qne that comes to mind is "Will Never Marry". It's not my way of looking at life, but I think it's a good sample of the way Morrissey sees it. Great song.
If it’s not too late, please, please  can I make it a CHEESE burger
"Wait, don’t turn the page, I'm not finished.
Life, is so uncertain."
Seasick, Yet Still Docked

Blood Sweat & Tears.....and when I die

Tim Croce.....time in a bottle

Just get married already.....or divorced..... 

Ok, I'll zip it
A few examples come to mind:
  • Immortal Technique “Mistakes”.
  • Dylan “Blowing in the Wind”
  • Hilltop Hood, “Stopping All Stations”


If it’s not too late, please, please can I make it a CHEESE burger
No problem.

Sounds more like a spin off from the Crazy Crazy Crazy discussion
Margaritaville is a philosophical examination of the meaning of life. Time in a Bottle is Jim Croce exploring the meaning of eternal love in a temporal world. The Cheesburger is an eclectic discussion on the illusion of choice. Please try and stay on topic dabel. Please. Thank you.
I’m trying miller. I need more clues.....please


Bryan Ferry,
Boys and Girls

it plays and I can almost hear his laugh. 💔
Thank you. Got it.....

The lyrics I knew, but song title and artist had slipped my mind.

Honest forgetful mistake
Bob Dylan (or The Band) / I shall be released
Psychotic Waltz, A Social Grace.....last track Nothing



Nonsense. "Margaritaville" is about an addict coming to terms with his own bullshit. Interesting choice, MC.
If anyone quotes a Doors song, I'm outta here.
Not necessarily the "most" philosophical but "Epitaph" on Crimson’s first album has some echoes in history. That Greg Lake is singing is a bonus. My best copy remains a first Island UK pink label, but it is somewhat noisy compared to other pressings.

This is the end, hilde45?

On a somewhat lighter note:

The Mrs noted that Sarah McLaughlin’s “Arms of the Angels” is viewed by many as a death song, but that she interprets it as a song about drugs.
Just thought of a good one... Nothing to Say by Jethro Tull from the Benefit album.

Bob Dylan — Like A Rolling Stone (“when you ain’t got nothing, you got nothing to lose,” for just one example).

But femoore12’s nomination of Tennessee Ernie Ford’s 16 Tons deserves a +1.

Truer words were never written.

"relating or devoted to the study of the fundamental nature of knowledge, reality, and existence"

That stupid song is definitely NOT. Senor Parrot is all about the money.
He finally relented on doing a private show a few years ago. $1000 per outdoor seat.

Can't think of just one but I'll say Wish You Were Here
Wasted on the Way - Crosby, Stills, & Nash
1. The Who, "I'm One." For a 16-year-old struggling with everything 16-year-olds go through, a perfect song. 
2. Those great lines from "Under Pressure," including the cry from Freddie, "Why can't we give love/One more chance. . ." Such an old fashioned word . . . Dares you to too much.
3. U2, "Until the End of the World." Judas talking to Jesus, challenging his apocalypticism. "So Cruel" from the same album. Heck, "One" has some great lines, and a great premise. And from "The Fly": "They say the sun is sometimes/Eclipsed by the moon/I don't see you/When she walks into the room."

The Bruces’ Philosophers song from Monty Python.

”Immanuel Kant was a real pissant Who was very rarely stable
Heidegger, Heidegger was a boozy beggar Who could think you under the table
David Hume could out-consume Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
And Wittgenstein was a beery swine Who was just as sloshed as Schlegel

There’s nothing Nietzche couldn’t teach ya ’Bout the raising of the wrist Socrates, himself, was permanently pissed

John Stuart Mill, of his own free will On half a pint of shandy was particularly ill
Plato, they say, could stick it away Half a crate of whiskey every day
Aristotle, Aristotle was a bugger for the bottle, Hobbes was fond of his dram
And René Descartes was a drunken fart "I drink, therefore I am"

Yes, Socrates, himself, is particularly missed
A lovely little thinker But a bugger when he’s pissed”

On a different level I’m rather fond of Who Knows Where the Time Goes by Sandy Denny


What's so funny about peace, love and understanding?

If we can throw in album titles, Bodeans - "Love and Hope and Sex and Dreams "covers pretty much every song ever written. 

Cheers,
Spencer
