What a great idea for a discussion, and I'd love to hear what other people think. Thanks for the kind words and thoughtful topic.
I think music and songs and words can shape our world, but not in the ways that the uptight ear-sniffers targeted by Snider think. They can change the world but they can't make the world, or individuals, do their bidding -- as if songs even have intentions of bidding -- in a vacuum. You are so right that songs spring from our experience in life -- and ultimately, not the other way around.
One of the most wonderful things about being involved with KDHX -- whether as a DJ, Web Editor or just regular listener -- is the constant discovery, not just of new music, but of good music, great songs, sounds and stories that leave an impression. I'm glad that I could share some of that with you this morning.
Hey Mike. That MMJ record is starting to sink in. It took a little while. I love the title track to the Hayes record but for some reason the rest hasn't stuck. But great picks. I think I've underrated the BJL record, for sure.
