This is heartbreaking but definitely NOT in bad way, only in good way. The song fits to the atmosphere of the pic perfectly; it gives me the idea Popeye really misses Olive and wants her to be there with him but she can't.
Defiantly plays to my biggest fear, being old and alone. Whats the point of living anymore when you don't have your mind, your senses, your mobility, your memory, or companionship? The old are forgotten because they remind us of where we will all be someday.
How sad, he has finally reached the point in his life where the once mighty sailor is but an old shell of his former glory, and it seems that with Olive Oyl no longer in his life he seems to lost the will to fight on in this world. To carry one without her at this point in his life seems too much for the old warrior to bear.
This becomes even more poignant to me. My Father was a submarine sailor and survived my Mother by 13 months. He was heartbroken and sat by the window gazing at the pictures of his lost love and best friend.
