If Only Someone Had Written A Song Describing The Bittersweet, Cyclical Nature Of The Father-Son Relationship
By Emanuel Bray

Over the years, music has covered a wide range of human emotions. But one aspect of the human condition that has never been evoked by a single musician is the complex relationship between father and son. I'm speaking specifically here about the strained bond that forms between the two when the father's neglect for his boy ultimately leads to the son's neglect for his father.


Meanwhile, can someone explain the irony of this one? I must be missing something: Crocodile Bites Off Bush's Arm

You don't see the irony in a broken link?

How tired do I have to be to have put the link text in the HREF attribute and the link itself as the element text?

Did you just make that up, or do you think that's what they were actually going for?

Sounds like the formula for one of those awful Sting touchy-feely songs.

Best line:

I can't tell you how many times I've beat my fists against a Best Music Of The '70s boxed set saying, "Why couldn't you contain a song with a straightforward narrative structure that describes my mournful parental situation and then, as a change-up for the chorus, maybe contains a mishmash of broken nursery rhymes to convey the detrimental effect I've had on my son's innocence? Why?"

I know.. I was going through Cat's in the Cradle in my head as I read that, checking off the parts that fit. lol
