It is not the music on its own: it's the music and the social state that interacts. What happens is very dialectic. Nothing occurs on its own, nothing: neither love nor hate. Everything that passes through the senses interacts. People were exhausted by the violence put forth by the terror campaign of the Pinochet dictatorship.

Probably that same song would have been ridiculous during the period of the Popular Unity government [of Salvador Allende].
