Leaving on a Jet Plane
The collective horde are off to the husband's homeland for a couple of weeks. So, in the meantime I'll leave you with a topic to discuss while I'm gone. The degeneration of originality in mainstream music of the last fifteen years can be blamed on what exactly? Consider the British invasion of the 60s, the soul and glam/rock explosion of the 70s, THE BIG 80s (that's for you, Marilyn teehee) , the grunge domination of the 90's to the current American Idol/Eurovision-based machinery in your answers.
Have a listen to one of my favorite Kinks songs while the rest is rolling around your brain. This video drags things back to a writing theme because face it, aren't we all tired of waiting for something at some point? Tired of waiting for your muse to come back, tired of waiting to hear about your submission, tired of waiting for the guy working at the coffee shop who asks you everyone morning , 'what you'll have?'
