analysis and interpretation
General Analysis
1960’s, bossa-nova arrangement
Gentle rhythm with a somewhat disconcerting undertone
Themes Interpreted
 A life led through the guidance and suggestion of others
Being spoken for and masking of emotions ("if your Nigel says he'shappy, he must be happy")
Having decisions made for you
Ultimately restricted in your life choices (an illusion of choice)
Treated as a puppet, every action you take and every decision youmake is the choice of somebody pulling your strings
