“So as to give them courage we must teach people to be shocked by themselves.”

Contrast (HUM415/HUM425)

Why not. By way of contrast. Lo-fi sound. Minimalist lyrics with a bit of political rhetoric. No well-produced visual narrative. Spacemen 3’s “Revolution”:

One response to “Contrast (HUM415/HUM425)

    VEry boring. Can’t understand the lyrics. I had to go on line to get them. Why did you not post them like you did for the other song? The song is monotonous, with only about 3 chords played over and over in various degrees of loudness or quietness. It does give a strong feeling of alienation, lack of emotion. The lyrics are interesting and do give a strong message but the message looses its power in the way it is delivered and the whole feel of the video. If I were listening to this as a young person, I would not be inspired to start a revolution.
