I was talking on the phone last night to Jimmy pondering things in life…
Things like, why my cat is sleeping in the bag I take lunch to work in… why people watch “dancing with the stars”… Shannen Doherty as a large nearly philosophical topic….
and people who bust the music in their car so fully that I can feel their beats up in my car.
Yesterday this happened to me, and being equipped with a car that can make your ears bleed with its bumping potential I bumped “Hello Mary Lou” by Ricky Nelson.
The boy in the next car was shocked… I think by the beauty of Mary Lou, or my rad sound system.
Either way I thought about the difference in music from the 1950-60s and found that it isn’t too different from today. It’s just we say things differently now…
I enclose the following examples:
1950s version: Ricky Nelson’s “Travelin’ Man”
2000’s version: Ludacris “Area Codes”
1950’s version: Dusty Springfield “Wishin’ and Hopin'”
2000’s version: Britney Spears “Slave 4U”
Not so different are they?
