I hardly remembered the last 4 tracks on the album, so they're almost new to me. Live Life A really pleasant rocker. Now that @Fortuleo is saying it, the verse might be stronger than the chorus, but it didn't strike me as much as on other songs (acting the contrarian here). My analysis of the verse lyrics never went much further than "political stuff put in smart sounding words", contrasted with the basic stoician (or epicurean ? I just spent 3 days with philosophers, my perception is altered) idea that in the end we don't give a damn about it all. It reminds me of a comedic fake advertisement that my conational probably remembers, in which a former revolutionary sells a brand of yoghurt named "Don't give a s**t" (litteraly "don't give a wa*k" in French) and says it has cured him from his militant past. Out of the wardrobe I have always thought that the right way to address offensive words was to disarm them, not ban them, but that's not the way society has chosen to handle this problem, and after all society may very well be quite right about this. I say this just to state that the offensiveness of words is not much of an issue for me : I always thought it a sane discipline to force myself to hear the meaning of words behind their appearance. But of course it's easier when you're not in a minority, and I don't use slurs myself. Still, I'm in the "context is everything" team, and since the context of this song is my childhood, I really don't see any problem with it. My main reproach is, I find the narrative a bit too straightforward. I don't hear any hidden meanings, irony or ambiguity, and in a way that's what's bothering me. The point being made is one of tolerance and openness, and that's great, but I wish it would have been made a bit more elaborately. The music's OK. Like a minority of Avids, I'm not so fond of the "princess" hook though. Neither do I enjoy the bridge that much. A pleasant song, not a skipper, quite touching actually, but not a favorite.
