It just goes to show what music is all about; The music. It doesn`t matter what the image is, how many times Madonna "shocks" or what video they make, or how many grammy awards they throw at it, if it isn`t good it won`t last. A good song always lives, a song that is "real" (to quote Stevie Ray Vaughn). There is one song in that school rock that always blew my mind "Figure eight" which I can`t find...The last time I saw it must have been 30 years ago, and it showed a girl skating a figure 8 on ice, and I couldn`t believe how incredible the melody was in that thing. It started out in this Mozart type classical thing then went into this pop groove, just incredible stuff.
Always loved Schoolhouse Rock - so I bought the DVD collection which has all the ones ever made. My personal favorite is The Tale of Mr. Morton. It always struck me as being very clever - who could ever imagine thinking up a song about the predicate of a sentance.
