Being born in the late 60's, I grew up listening to songs of the 70's like Stairway to Heaven, Free Bird, Sweet Home Alabama and Highway to Hell. And then there were the big hair bands of the 80's, like Def Leppard, Van Halen and Bon Jovi. And let's not forget the music of the 90's - Love Shack by the B-52's, I will Always Love You by Whitney Houston and Gettin Jiggy Wit It by Will Smith. I have always admired and have a true appreciation for wide variety of music. Even today with raising my two teen girls, I am getting an education in today's pop music. Most of the time, I cannot bare to listen to their rap music and silly songs about
cheese sticks G-6's and not to mention the lyrics of some of these songs! Have you listened to Rihanna's S&M lyrics? DJ's play her song continuously on the pop music radio stations. Here are a few lines of the main chorus:
Cause I may be bad, but I'm perfectly good at it
Sex in the air, I don't care, I love the smell of it
Sticks and stones may break my bones
But chains and whips excite me
I know. I find it vulgar and gross too. I cringe when I hear it.
There is one song I so love right now by the Irish pop rock band The Script. Now this I can handle and my girls - well they love it too! Sit back and take a listen. It is a beautiful song. Happy Wednesday, my friends!
