I thought I was familiar with all of Elton John's hits in the 1970's so I was surprised to hear Amoreena at the opening of Dog Day Afternoon (which we recently watched, but which I was too young to watch when it came out in 1975):
...Tumbleweed Connection is simpler than
John's last album and next time around I hope he goes all the way and
gets down to nothing but the basics. He is one of the few who is good
enough not to need anything else.
In the summer, I tend to listen to more pop and rock music. 1984's "Rebel Yell" by Billy Idol has been a recent favorite (yes, I end up with current favorites that are often decades old so this is relatively young). I like the music, but never really paid much attention to the words (which often happens with me).
Another post thanks to my daughter. She's up to date on current music; I'm not. When we're driving around, we surf radio stations. If it's an older song, I'll keep it on - except for the ones she doesn't like. Newer songs - she'll tell me this is a good one and we listen. Recently, a number of those have been songs by Pink.
"Who Knew" is, Pink says, a song about the death of friendship (from her album, I'm Not Dead). She lost friends to drug overdoses, which is reflected in the video:
If someone said three years from now
You'd be long gone
I'd stand up and punch them out
Cause they're all wrong
I know better
Cause you said forever
The song of hers that I know the best is Get the Party Started because it's quite popular on aerobics CD's.
