Joseph LeDoux: Inside the Brain, Behind the Music, Part 5

[ 5 ] July 23, 2010 | Joseph LeDoux

Crime of Passion (J. LeDoux)

(Rosanne Cash vocals in parentheses)

Sentenced to death

For a crime I did commit

I couldn’t stop

I did it in a fit

Of anger and pain

Of sorrow and hate

Of torture and trouble

Of misery and fate

You were to me

(Like nectar to a bee )

My source of life

(Your loving wife)

Saw you with him

(You were hurt and enraged)

I couldn’t  stop

(Once your brain was engaged)

A crime of passion has got me

Locked in this dirty old cell

(A crime of passion has got you

lost in a living hell)

If I could go back I wouldn’t

I wouldn’t kill for you

You’re not worth

What I’m going though

Waiting and waiting 

For my day to come

Time goes so slow

Can’t they just get it done

I thought I could take it

Just the test of a man

Wrong again

Blood’s stuck to my hands

A crime of passion has got me (has got you)

Locked in this dirty old cell

A crime of passion has got me (has got you)

Lost in a living hell

(A crime of passion has got you

Locked in this dirty old cell

A crime of passion has got me

Lost in a living hell)

Lost in a living hell

Lost in a living hell

    I read an interesting point awhile back.

    “But, why do we punish people if they don’t have free will? We don’t punish machines.”

    We, indeed, treat machines just like people. When machines misbehave, we either reprogram or fix them (rehabilitation), or simply turn them off (capital punishment).

    “Your honor, the decision I made to plunge the knife into his chest was actually made below my level of consciousness at least 6 seconds before I was even consciously aware of the decision!” The judge would likely consider that irrelevant.

    Interesting stuff. Be sure to have your CDs available when our March NYAS Conference on Music, Science and Medicine takes place. Maybe could serve as background for lunch, or reception?

    So, when will you start writing about music’s effect on the brain of the neuroscientist??
