The streak of blue is there because it is what the artist FELT. If it doesn't feel right to you that is because you're not the artist. THIS song is exactly as it should be. That is what arts is. And I love it.
Yes, of course! nice comparison.
Still, i don’t think that the former critique about the (non-existent) “flaws” was meant in a patronizing way.
I understood some forum members and their comments in the way, that they actually meant that something didn’t feel right - to them, it sounded x ... to them, the streak of blue felt x ... to them. I admit the passage “Please fix this before its release” did make me smile. How can one fix a flaw that doesn't exist?
Fortunately, “the streak of blue” will stay – nothing to be fixed! However, i find it valid, sometimes interesting, to hear about different associations about the blue – and even speculations about (non-existent) streaks of yellow may be allowed, why not?! Generally, a respectful freedom of thought makes life interesting and manifold, even in a forum, doesn’t it? Different people have different sensations at different times...i appreciate a respectful tolerance in a forum, and outside, too.
I am so glad that Leonard is in the position to choose the producer and collaborators himself. Otherwise the streak of blue might be missing indeed. Or even forbidden and punished.
and what to others may seem like “flaws”
to me, it is pure passion and perfection
