John Y’s Musings from the Middle: Bitter Sweet Symphony


Bitter Sweet Symphony

I am a sucker for bitter sweet as a prefix for anything.

I admit that.

I think that much of life, even the most beautiful , brilliant, gratifyjng and elegant parts are still —at best — imbued with a bitter sweet quality. And that isn’t a “sad” quality.

Just a human one.

So being the cutting edge music aficionado that I am, I couldn’t resist the title of this song I stumbled across this morning: And absolutely love this song and sound and video.

Note; I use “cutting edge ” loosely.

Meaning plus or minus 15 years. Apparently this song was released in 1997 and received notable acclaim.

But, hey, that’s more cutting edge than, like, 16 years later.
