Music Night, July 20, 2012 – Just for Rmoney

My favorite song from CCR and so unbelievably appropriate for today.

  1. Speaking of songs…

    From the NYT:

    “It’s the difference between the songs that they’re singing,” (Romney surrogate) Mrs. Welch said. “Mitt Romney didn’t exactly do a beautiful job on that song, but think about what he’s singing, OK? I mean it’s that patriotic song and he goes all the way through it. Then you’ve got the very cool Barack Obama singing Al Green. That is the two different Americas. Isn’t it?”

    What the WHAT? There’s a knee-grow in the White House!

      • I remember back when I was young how the older folk decried the new music as ‘noise’ because they couldn’t discern the lyrics. Even then I agreed with them. I’ve never been a fan of hard rock and heavy metal for that reason. Now that my hearing is going I find it hard to appreciate what I essentially can’t hear. While I can appreciate the instrumental portions, the lyrics tend to be buried.

        I do miss the story tellers and balladeers. Like Ian and Baez and Chapin. Linda and Emmy Lou. I suppose it is why I appreciate some of the Country singers who still depend on their voices and lyrics though there are too many who have gone ‘patriotic’.

        • Our parents learned to like music that was mainly written for clarinet, trumpet or saxophone leads, and vocals by talented singers. They didn’t enjoy guitar leads with heavy percussion, and vocalists whose lyrics were more important than the way they were sung.
          A lot of what I liked as a kid, I don’t like now.
