grip on reality not too good

The Point of all Songs

FIFTY YEARS OF POPULAR SONGS CONDENSED INTO SINGLE SENTENCES. which include such gems as:

Led Zeppelin, "Whole Lotta Love"

I want to do it with you.

- - - -

James Blunt, "You're Beautiful"

I want to do it with you.


Although I've always preferred folk to popular songs, so I appreciate Folksongs are your friends which tells you everything you need to avoid misfortune, for example:

Avoid oaths, particularly when you’re near navigable waterways or the greenwoodside.

Never let a stranger teach you a new game. No good will come of it.

If you look at the calendar and discover it’s May, stay home.
