Britney's got the intellectuals shook. Check up this write up on "Heaven on Earth" by music writer/intellectual Marcello Carlin which was published in his 2011 book "The Blue in the Air".

For those who don't know, "Low" is David Bowie's 11th album.

Bio of the author

Quote

Ex-child prodigy Marcello Carlin personal life was demolished when his first wife died abruptly of cancer in August 2001. Looking for a way back into the world, he began to publish his music writing in the blog The Church Of Me which quickly found much acclaim and applause for its innovative approach and unavoidable candour. He has subsequently written extensively about music in numerous publications and on numerous websites and is an occasional broadcaster on Resonance 104.4 FM. He married fellow music blogger Lena Friesen in November 2007 and they live happily in London.

Book synopsis

Quote

The Blue in the Air is a gesture of defiance from a tiny but meaningful tugboat of resistance. At a time when we are repeatedly encouraged for reasons of demographic convenience to believe that music can change nothing and mean nothing, this writer demonstrates comprehensively that for those who stay awake, alert and alive, music still retains the power to change the fabric of the air we choose to breathe.

I don't think that link really showed much. I saw perfect lover and Britney and some nice words but nothing really made sense

It seems like a very personal take on the emotional aspects that the song brings to the author... I am just glad Britney album tracks find their way into intellectual writings.

This is what people with PhDs in philosophy etc write.

Useless academic work about music... like who even cares? :queenriri:

I love how every academic work is like 'Christina shows her struggle through the lyrics of Reflection, whereby she questions whether or not the girl she portrays on the stage is the real her.'  Do they not realize songwriters actually write music? It's not like Xtina was like 'omg I feel like **** I need to wear a mask to fool the world' and the writer is like 'THAT'S BRILLIANT. WE'LL USE THAT' :giggleney:

many people feel that way on a daily basis, I think that almost every human felt that at least once in a lifetime with Xtina included :snapney:

 

That wasn't my point though :queenriri:

But i agree :plzexplain:
