A bit of music

I was thinking about duncanr's post involving

"an unusual defence to the charge of downloading child pornography"
Whilst I can see no mitigating circumstances for that guy, this song comes to mind.

Jethro Tull - Aqualung (Live) [7:38]

interesting.. that bit of the song always bothered me. I hate to think of Ian Anderson as a pedophile!

I agree df, the first few lines are dark and creepy, but overall it adds to the pathos we feel (I feel) for the character in the song. A life lost, or taken away, or never had.

I never intended to impugne the character of IA.

You didn't .. it's clear that you're a fan, I recall the other song you posted.. I'm a fan as well.

It's just that thinking about the song after reading Duncan's post had me see the words from another perspective... so I thought about it differently. I find that listening to music with some age and distance means that i hear the lyrics from a new place sometimes...
