From time to time ridiculous things that people have told me tends to bounce around in my head. One of the most ludicrous things was spat out by a 24-year-old boy (I call him a boy because of the way he chose to behave) when he uttered, “that’s before my time”. It was said to make anyone who was older than 24 feel past their expiration date. However it had a different effect on me, it lowered my opinion of him as a person. Perhaps it was said in jest, but it just made him look ignorant. I personally love things that predate me. As a teenager I loved music from the seventies and beyond. I often feel like people are so obsessed with creating something they think is new, when it really isn’t, and/or interesting, again many times missing the mark. When they bypass the foundation of something, that which gives us a leg to stand on.
So I’ve been thinking, if I could remind or in some cases introduce folks to something from our past that they might enjoy that would be a good thing, right? Hopefully I find something that you will find wizard…totally and entirely wizard. I think they’ll mostly be music posts, because that’s easier to present.
One of my favorite songs is from the Allman Brothers, Melissa, it’s has an interesting back story if you care to read. To me there is a very soulful quality to the song. I think that is something that helps make a song great, at least in my opinion. I hope you enjoy.
