Sad Songs Are Nature’s Onions (Pt. 7)

(This is part of a long series about sad songs and how they are nature’s onions.)

Jarvis Cocker-”Disney Time”

We suffer through childhoods of watching Disney films, seeing atrocities softened with sweet songs and pastel colors. We see Princesses eating poisoned apples; we gasp in horror as Bambi’s mother dies off-screen. And when we’re adults, we might as well be dead, mindlessly watching “adult films” that amount to nothing more than the butchery of love. Jarvis Cocker’s “Disney Time” compares the two in disturbing and depressing ways.

Bonus! “Disney Time” live in Seattle!
