|But the music back then WAS better! Lyrics for the most part were stories...not ramblings of nothing like a lot of the stuff today! And it DID matter whether or not you could sing...it was about so much more than sex appeal!!!! Lord knows this is true....look at Mick Jagger! giggle...guess your last stanza applies to me too, Jerry....giggle

|how we see it as it was or we think it was
or we say it was..so many layers like
peeling an onion (if anyone does that!)
but always worth the exploration for we're
formed by the experiences whether good or
bad or downright nothing at all;
i like where you go here, Jerry

|Trash is trash and always will be. Some young minds can't see the difference. I remember when my dad switched the car radio from big bands to rock 'n roll because he began to like it, or how my nieces hated me for buying them an album of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young rather than that forgotten band that sang, “Saturday Night” and killed Howard Cosell's big variety show. My nieces still love me, and my brother still cherishes that album he picked up from their trash.
I hope I never get old. But if I do, I'll pick out the best from the youngin's, too. Just no piercings and tattoos allowed.

|Difficult for some to relate. Those who may have chosen different sounds, voices, vibrations et al to craft their adolescent emotional foundation may be of a different point to prove. Interesting opinion here.|

|Hey I was there, Woodstock, at 15 years old & my dad used to listen to the Beatles with me and tell me that that music would NEVER last...and it outlasted him...though "his" music is still around too, big band jazz, and of all things, even I listen to it...just goes to show we all mature at a different pace...life is afterall not a race...e|

|I guess it's all down to what suits our needs at the time. Rock for us was rebellion against what was 'Proper Behaviour'. Now the teen music reflects a newer, younger, 'We've moved on from that' attitude.
It seems to be necessary for each generation to appear more forward thinking,outrageous and liberated than the last.
Doesn't mean it's so of course. :o)
