    Default What would you consider "deep"?

    So I was having an argument with myself awhile back over whether some songs could be considered "deep" or not, and I couldn't really come up with a good answer. Is something "deep" if it talks about emotions? Or if it has a layered meaning? Or is it even describable? And the truth is, I don't know. I can't know. At least not in a way that I can argue with someone why *this* is "deep" while *that* isn't. I'm just going to have to be subjective. So, I want your opinion.

    What would you consider to be "deep"?

    EDIT: I'm asking for your opinion in general, not just songs.

    Songs that play on multiple dynamics, whether musically, lyrically, or both. Multi-dimensional.

    Oh, I meant in general, not just songs.

    On a more serious note,(pun intended) to me,a song is "deep"if it evokes a response other than tapping my foot,or singing along in the car. Songs that I want to listen to with headphones on with my eyes closed. For example, The Beatles "Dear Prudence" or Blind Faith's "Can't find my way home". Songs that when they come on the radio I tell people around to be quiet so I can hear them. It is about you and your reaction to the song,and less about the actual song. It's all opinion.

    Same idea applies to most things. I tend to view what is seen in one dimension as superficial because it only is true in one sense and that is as it pertains to that one specific thing at that one specific time.

    Deeper things incorporate more than one dimension. They encompass multiple areas allowing for a deeper association, understanding, more worldly views, experiences, knowledge, or feelings.

    I think "depth" is more of an operational term than one that's really meaningful to me. It's used as the foundation for a hierarchy of aesthetic values; and I resent, in postmodern fashion, all attempts to hierarchy in aesthetic values.

    Are thoughts and emotions the only things can can be deep (in this context). What other things could be deep?

    When I think "deep" I think beyond the surface, not easily observable, greater meaning.
