Talk:Love Songs

From Zappa Wiki Jawaka
Jump to navigation Jump to search

For what it's worth, I agree with Duncan here. Many of the songs listed as having 'no humorous lyrics' do indeed have humorous lyrics. One obvious example, though hardly the only one, is 'No No No': "Gave my Money All to You/You Took My Watch and Pawned it too/Three gold teeth and one glass eye/Didn't have the nerve to say goodbye'.

This page seems to be little more than an individual's interpretations without any independent sourcing. A suitable case for deletion? Duncan 16:48, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

Zappa targeted love songs several times in interviews and his own songs. I only added a few more "serious" songs to prove that not every song he wrote dealt with love in a satirical way. User:Spider of Destiny

Once again you are trying to prove something. That is not the purpose of the Wiki. Feel free to create your own blog and document all you fantasy interpretations there but here we are attempting to record the life, times and music of Frank Zappa. There is nothing to prove we just provide the facts. We should not be explaining, interpreting, or proving anything. Duncan 18:15, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
You (and other users) always ask me for sources or examples to prove claims. Explaining and sourcing information is neccessary to make other users understand the article or to let them know which links exist that provide more information to an article. Whether something is subjective is a matter of interpretation and I try no to write interpretations or theories. But sometimes it's unavoidable, especially when you try to explain how Zappa or another person in his life or career felt about a certain topic. User:Spider of Destiny
