Sad? Yes. Most of J’s songs seem to deal with loneliness, heartbreak and unhappiness. It’s in the lyrics — "there never really is a good time / there’s always nothing much to say" is only one of countless possible examples — in his melancholy guitarsolo’s, in everything.
Depressing? No. As seems to be the case for most of you, his music does not depress me. It makes me feel better when I listen to it. As sad music tends to do.
Why is that? Arthur Schopenhauer had a beatiful theory about this fact… Let me get back to you as soon as I’ve done some studying. [img]images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]
