I had a listen to it on YouTube.
As you say, “The song does ‘hit the nail on the head’ lyrically about a condition
of human emotional feeling.” And that’s the point where you thought “Why Not”
OK … can you think of a use of words in a song which Does ‘hit the nail on the head’, yet you’d say ‘no’ to letting it be used? Ie … is that a necessary AND sufficient criterion? Is it ‘anything goes’ as long as it ‘hits the nail on the head’? Just interested.
In my Own soul, When I ask the question ‘Why not’ - the answers I get sound like the unthinking negative judgements my parents used to make. I swear quite a lot, and therefore I like it when the whys and the why nots get asked, in order to more finely tune their use rather than apply blanket interdictions.
I thought ‘F you’ comes under the umbrella of ‘flaming language’ … inciting etc. The kind of language which would not be approved of on a forum, for example.
I also remember “I hate You So Much [right now]” - imo a great song, and another which hit the nail on the head. Again, it is ‘angry AT someone’ Couple of hundred years ago, it would have been “Deciever vile! Avaunt!” - feelings would be the same. Is people having to be ‘nice’ to each other such a good thing?
I noticed with interest that the ‘K you’ song was in the style of the ‘happy-nice’ soul which used to be around in the 60s … so there is the ‘intensification through juxtaposition of opposites’ … cf, this is not using the Multi-Fs we put in when we write rap songs. In that vein, Torchwood and Blood and Sand felt powerful to me too. Anyone followed those? A strong director’s theme in both was use of F–k as an oft used linguistic condiment. I did not follow Torchwood, but I did follow Blood and Sand. those noble Romans effin’ and blindin’ made me feel ODD, though I have to swear a lot in my job.
All the best
