Me: It's weird they're playing this song on this station. It doesn't really fit.
Ben: No, I've heard it a few times now.
Me: Well, I like it, though, even though it's depressing.
Ben: Of course you do. All the good songs are about death and depressing things.
Me: No they aren't! There are plenty of good songs that are happy!
Ben: Nope, all depressing.
Me: What about "Amazing Grace"? That's a very inspirational song about finding solace in God. It's not about death.
Ben: Oh yes it is! They find God so they can DIE and go to heaven.
Me: But the whole point is that death isn't true death, and you live eternally content with the Lord.
Ben: But you die.
Me: But it doesn't matter to them, that's the whole point!..oh, never mind. There are lots of other songs that are spiritually uplifting - gospel-like songs.
Ben: Yeah about a guy who DIED!
Me: I said gospel-LIKE! They aren't all about Jesus!
Ben: Then you have the whole Blues genre.
Me: *sigh* ...I am so blogging this conversation.....
