One of many musical lessons I learned in 1967 was that songs could be Poetry.
They could bring an economical use of words to paint pictures in your mind.
So to open this chapter, a listen to only a few of those more literate offerings (with more to come as we move along in the series).
After that, I’ll play a LONG song that I venture most people haven’t heard, as it never gets played today.
In fact, it never got played much back then- Scott Muni on WNEW-FM was the ONLY DJ I ever heard play it!
If you have heard it before, it will undoubtedly bring back a memory…hopefully a fun one.
But you may have forgotten all about it- its very existence!
It is a song with a very strange story about a Nightmare Train Ride, complete with a surprise ending that has always amused me.
It was very much a product of its time, that burgeoning Brave New World Of Music coming at us from all angles in 1967!
