The Peter Gabriel/Justin Bieber Musical Let Down Hypothesis

Today’s pop musicians (read: nearly everything written from 1995 – present) have no talent. Gone are the days of imagery-filled, gut wrenching, make-you-go-wow lyrics. Songs about love and relationships and all things that pertain to it have been dumbed down so far, I am convinced that we’ll begin seeing music hitting the top of the pop charts that was originally written as a second grade assignment in some podunk school out in the cornfields of Nebraska (no offense to Nebraskans, but if I chose Detroit or Chicago, we would be more likely to see dumbed down, obscene, rap lyrics written by angry sixth graders). 867 more words

WOMADic adventures

The Book of Love~Peter Gabriel

My latest song that’s been stuck in my head for almost a month is, “The Book of Love,” sung by Peter Gabriel. It all started when he was on television and inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, (finally.) I love Peter Gabriel’s music and he and I were born on the same day, but not the same year. 235 more words


You Can Keep My Things...

I crashed out after a full day of downsizing but laid here unable to sleep. I’ve found that it’s a lot harder to downsize than upsize. 185 more words
