BobP Folk History: The Scare Revisited (32) RE: BS: Folkhistory: The Scare Revisited 01 Jun 01


Well, folk gone pop, stuff that had, or seemed to have, an effect on the culture. Stuff that would one day lead to viewpoints expressed through music as strong as The Times They Are Achanging or Amerian Pie (condemnation of the Rolling Stones/Hell's Angels behavior at Altamont).

The ones that eventually destroyed the great musical literature of the day, such as "catch a falling star and put it in your pocket, never let it fade away" followed by the brilliantly insightful "catch a falling star put it in your pocket, never let it fade away".

But wait, it gets better . . .

"Love may come and tap you on the shoulder some starless night, and just in case you feel you want to hold her, you'll have a pocket full of starlight."

Kinda gets you right here. . .

I could run you through the one about the doggie in the window which always left me wondering if it turned out to be too expensive to take her place. Of course, that waggilly tail, you know, was probably a ruse to imply more sinister thoughts only her lover would appreciate.
