Hi everyone I'm back again. I have been reading your submissions and we are getting a little sidetracked and sniping at each other more than is necessary - from the point of view of an observer. I love a heated debate as much as the next man/woman but come on folks! we are not appointed spokespersons for our generations we are just innocent bystanders reflecting on the less than perfect fragments of memory and literary interpretations available to us. The Sixties was a time of change as were the Fifties and every other decade come to think of it.Just because some of the performing fleas were a little more flamboyant and in tune with a counter-culture does not make it any less of a performing flea than those that came before or after. I stated in my first statement that no pop song from the 60s could be justified as a spiritual song and I have yet to be challenged on that; and my assertion that only Sam Cookes "A Change is Gonna Come" comes close, nobody able to comment on this? Let's get back on track!
Happy New Year.
