I've been hearing from people since I posted a Tragically Hip hater's analysis of the band. Some agree with him, others know exactly where he's coming from. All of this has got me thinking...
I think you either get it, or you don't. If you get it, you get it large and you're hooked. If you don't, you don't, and that's just the way it is. Somebody has already stolen my thunder and written an essay on this topic that I think is pretty accurate.
I just get it, and there's little in this world that feels as good as being bathed in the poetic ramblings of Gord and being surrounded by those songs I know and love. I used to want Taryn to feel what I felt, and I dragged her to a few shows before I realized that she just doesn't get it, and that's okay.
It's better for us if you don't understand.
