Have you ever listened to something time and again and just enjoyed the music, the beat, the singer's voice but yet not really listen????
One day, you listen to the same beloved song, perhaps in another venue.
Allow the following "for instance" ; you download the music to your computer, put on your headphones and get a one on one experience with the song that you've not experienced before.
The words, crisp, clear and undiluted by the world noise around you, are feeding directly into your ear. You focus more than you ever have before and your brain is jerked awake into an awareness.
The song that you knew....or thought you knew, takes you on a mental journey to a different place.
Such is the case with one of my favorite James Bond movie theme songs, THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN.
Do you remember????
Christopher Lee played Scaramanga,
And the theme song was sung by..Lulu. (if memory serves)
Do you remember what Scaramanga liked to do before he shot his mark?
Well, I never had any misconceptions about the movie. It was one of the good ones, worth watching over and over. The theme song was one that I listened to and liked very much. Two weeks ago, I developed a greater appreciation for its lyrics.
It seemed so innocent!!
Well, as innocent as anything could be when it concerns our favorite 007 agent.
Allow me to provide focus for my revelation. It came from two sentences.
"Love is required, whenever he's hired. He comes just before the kill. "
No one can catch him, no hit man can match him for his million dollar skill.
One golden shot means another poor victim,
has come to a glittering end,
for a price he'll erase anyone,
(if you want to get rid of someone), the man with the golden gun will get it done,
he'll shoot anyone.
With his golden gun.
His eye may be on you or me,
who will he bang,
we shall see."
Whoa. It provides a rich innuendo. A sexual feel. And it got past the censors!!!
"He comes just before the kill"? When it is taken and viewed from this new perspective, the phrase just takes my eyebrows on an upward journey of astonishment.
Imagine me making a big "O" with my mouth, as I sat in shock from the ramifications of my new interpretation of the lyrics!!!
Originally, I assumed that "who will he bang" meant, who will be his next assassination target. Now, on this new level, I hear; who will be his next female conquest to get him "in the mood" for completing his mission. "His eye may be on You or Me".....makes you think, doesn't it??? Like I said, "Don't presume innocence"...
Am I the only one who has discovered this????
Am I the only one who this has ever happened to??
I really hope you can make me feel like I'm not alone in this .
