Prophetic voices from unusual sources: Camper van Beethoven

I am still a fan of Camper Van Beethoven. Their songs often are dark, brooding, quirky, funny, and at times deeper than they appear in their meaning. This song is called Life is Grand.

Life is Grand by Camper Van Beethoven

And life is grand

And I will say this at the risk of falling from favor

With those of you who have appointed yourselves

To expect us to say something darker

And love is real

And though I realize this is not a deep observation

To those of you who find it necessary

To conceal love or obscure it, as is the fashion
