Subject: RE: LYR ADD: Society's Child
Roger, again, thanks. In the mid 60's, I sang in a lounge in Cocoa Beach, FL. They gave me a list of songs they thought I should sing. I distinctly remember Bye, Bye Blackbird being one of the songs. At that time, I was a quiet rebel, as opposed to the vociferous rebel I am now, but I would sing Society's Child every night, because I loved the song. It went right over everyone's head, except my folks who had to chaperone me because I wasn't 21. Lounge singing was pretty good money, but it reinforced my thoughts about the type of mentality of those who manage them, and, unfortunately, many of those who sat in them. Oh, well ... I was simply having a "nostalgia" moment. jenny
