Back in the 1950s writers and preachers were beside themselves with the appearance of Elvis Presley and the budding stars of Rock n Roll. Warning the public of the danger of contaminating the youth of the nation by listening to and watching the immoral songs replete with sexual innuendos and undertones. As a fan of Rock n Roll and having grown up listening to pop music in my home as a child I can tell you that until I was educated in the affairs of the birds and the bees I never picked up on this sexual undercurrent.
However I must say, although I general keep an open mind and enjoy a wide variety of music genres and styles I find my self aghast at the latest crop of modern pop music. There are no longer sexual undercurrents in hip hop it’s all spelled and acted out in the most crude fashion. Basically music is morphing into a sexual soundtrack set to a writhing beat.
Will people look at me one day as some quaint relic?
I don’t know but in the meantime I’d rather not have my kids listening to...and wondering about handcuffs and moaning girls getting their bootys spanked.
