Thanks Tom for "Sukiyaki (Ue o Muite Arukou) - Kyu Sakamoto".
I like the song and especially like the whistling. I could whistle along and I love to whistle.

Well, I was referring to the title.
Of course, one of us (forget who) has a signature saying it is the most adaptable who survive.
And now back to the music.


Green Fields - Brothers Four
Quote
Green fields are gone now, parched by the sun
Gone from the valleys where rivers used to run
Gone with the cold wind that swept into my heart
Gone with the lovers who let their dreams depart
Where are the green fields that we used to roam

What a great video Neven, thanks.

At the end of the 90s, it was for me the 'bitches', 'hoes', 'gangsta rap', vocoders etc. that ended my connection with and interest in modern music. Glorification of violence and bad behaviour, toxic masculinity. The end of love; the end of trust, kindness and intimacy.

I stopped listening to popular hits, made my own playlists and later started my search for older music. Morality in music sunk to the bottom. What a stark contrast with the 80s and 70s.

1990 - the start of the second Great Accelleration.

The Zombies - Hung Up On A Dream (1968)

(Lyrics below embedded video)



Well, I remember yesterday
Just drifting slowly through a crowded street
With neon darkness shimmering through the haze
A sea of faces rippling in the heat

And from that nameless changing crowd
A sweet vibration seemed to fill the air
I stood astounded staring hard
At men with flowers resting in their hair

A sweet confusion filled my mind
Until I woke up only finding everything was just a dream
A dream unusual of its kind
That gave me peace and blew my mind
And now I'm hung up on a dream

They spoke with soft persuading words
About a living creed of gentle love
And turned the arm to sounds unheard
And showed me strangest clouded sights above

Which gentle touched my aching mind
And soothed the wanderings of my troubled brain
Sometimes I think I'll never find
Such purity and peace of mind again

At the end of the 90s, it was for me the 'bitches', 'hoes', 'gangsta rap', vocoders etc. that ended my connection with and interest in modern music. Glorification of violence and bad behaviour, toxic masculinity. The end of love; the end of trust, kindness and intimacy.

I stopped listening to popular hits, made my own playlists and later started my search for older music. Morality in music sunk to the bottom. What a stark contrast with the 80s and 70s.
I sympathize as I really dislike that type of music/violence. But there is still trust, kindness and intimacy in music even today. There's also sadness and vulnerability. You normally have to look hard for it, but sometimes such music even becomes popular by some miracle.

Billie Eilish - When the Party's Over



Don't you know I'm no good for you?
I've learned to lose you, can't afford to
Tore my shirt to stop you bleedin'
But nothin' ever stops you leavin'
Quiet when I'm coming home and I'm on my own
I could lie, say I like it like that, like it like that

And while on the subject of emotional/vulnerable, here is a gut-wrenching acapella from my favorite artist of the 1990s, Tori Amos, whose fame was a miracle as well.

She was kidnapped and sexually assaulted, and this song (which bubbled up after having watched Thelma and Louise) was the beginning of her healing process.



It was me and a gun
And a man on my back
And I sang "holy holy" as he buttoned down his pants
You can laugh
It's kind of funny things you think
At times like these
Like I haven't seen Barbados
So I must get out of this

Yes I wore a slinky red thing
Does that mean I should spread
For you, your friends, your father, Mr. Ed

Thanks oren. I agree that beautiful kind music can still make it but in general on the radio not so. blumenkraft posted "Happy" which is another example, and I posted "House am see" and they are many others. They are just not 'mainstream' anymore. I can't stand the nasty women-degrading videoclips and the women going happily along with it. And the dumb low morality macho men. Fixated on sex.
Also I don't like most modern sounds and voices. When I hear an unknown song on the radio I can often (almost always) tell immediately whether it is modern or from before the year 2000.
I like Tori Amos though. Great and powerful confronting lyrics, thanks.
