Thread: Share music, unless really bad. Then don't.

    I just listened to Seger’s “Turn the Page’ and loved it so yes I’m old. ����
    May we be true to both divinely implanted impulses—the yearning for God, and the hunger for knowledge—and know they are the same. John Keats

    I think that song is more of a corporate anthem.

    Beauty is nothing but the beginning of terror which we are barely able to endure, and are awed,
    because it serenely disdains to annihilate us.

    I don't even know what corporate anthem would mean. I hope it's not what I think. Soon workers will be standing to pledge alligence to their company on arrival. They'll insert "under money". Heck, I'm old enough to remember when Eisenhower had us insert "under God". "Under money" would be more accurate. Come back bd, splain it to my Lucy head.

    It's exactly that - a rousing air to stimulate corporate loyalty and commitment to sustained economic growth. In the case of Cardiacs, the "company" is their own record label. I guess it is a bit of a little inside joke with them, but it is, in my view, a pretty good piece of music.

    However what's no joke is when I worked at accountancy firm KPMG and they had a particularly catchy one. Wanna hear it? Here it is.

    But for the love of God please don't listen to the PriceWaterhouseCoopers one.

    bd,

    Thanks, I think, for the enlightenment on the existence of corporate songs. I agree, "they go for the gold".

    So indoctrinating. So, so, so......
