The Importance of Context

I’m starting the new year with one of my favourite songs, ‘There She Goes, by the LA’s.

I love it. A perfect pop song about a young woman. 

But someone told me it’s really about cocaine. Listen to it again. It works. 

Or it could be about a young woman having the effect of cocaine on the singer.

Does it matter? Maybe not. But the words and music haven’t changed, it’s your perception that has.

When you read or hear anything it’s worth stopping to think. Who? What? Why?

Context can matter as much as content.

Happy New Year!
