You know what I mean. The stuff that bloody MTV
cranks out all
, every day
Sure, they look pretty
enough but the singing! Oh have mercy on me
, what kind of singing is that!?
It's just wailing
and background dancers shaking their
asses off till the cows come home
. And that's not very suitable music
for todays frail
youth, I think you'll agree.
And they're just kids! They don't know anything about life! What kind
of friggin right have you got to sing about eternal love when
you're what, fifteen? You'd have to be at least 21 to know anything
about that. Now Aretha Franklin, she must be pushing 85 or something
and she knows about life.
They ain't even got proper names. 'Aaliyah', what kind of name is
that? Sounds like bloody Swahili to me.
We used to get proper soul music when I was a lad. Isaac
Hayes. Otis Redding. Marvin Gaye (God bless him!). Even Dusty
Springfield. Sigh. They just don't make 'em as they used to anymore.
