Music Monday

Big. Over the top. Amazing. I love 70's Rock. It was, I believe, the last decade for truly great music. Classic after classic after classic. It was a time when the way you looked was less important than whether or not you were good. You didn't need auto-tuning or any of that other crap. Most of the stuff now just doesn't have that magic. Even the songs I like sound like they came off an assembly line. Talent. Something that's sadly lacking today. I'm starting to sound like a cranky old man. "Back in my day..." But the music was better.

"My heart is black and my lips are cold. Cities on flames with rock and roll. Three thousand guitars they seem to cry, My ears will melt, and then my eyes". A helluva lot better than "It's Friday, Friday, Gotta get down on Friday, Everybody's lookin' forward to the weekend, weekend". Dear God shoot me. Plus that evil guitar.
