I started this 2nd half of the show with a song I thought of because of the weather.
Hint: It was 98 degrees out, lol!
With the always comforting Temperature Humidity Index stat, it was well over 100!
I was so happy I was doing the show from home, and didn't have to go out into that sweltering heat and humidity.
As the song was playing however, I realized just how broad a topic this was- I had picked a YEAR...1967!
Not just ANY year, but one with a massive amount of Music of all types to choose from.
Where would I go next with this, what would I play?
I was almost frozen by the possibilities, lol!
So I grabbed a vinyl album, any album.
After all, I must have brought the albums over near me for a reason, plus that usually means it's something I don't have on CD, and is probably rare or interesting.
Whatever I grabbed, the next song I played would be contained on it somewhere- hey, I was running out of time.
And that's quite simply how I ended up beginning the set of songs I eventually played.
It's that kind of careful planning that makes this Rockollections thing so tightly produced and hailed as hugely educational, LOL!
After that panicky moment, I decided a LONG song was in order- one that would take me to the end of the show, with no more choosing on my part until the next time I return to this series.
So I'll close this chapter out with a song from the FIRST album by a huge, Hall Of Fame Band!
Did you know it was about the Oedipus Complex, and that if you listen to the music you will hear the thrusting sound of sex, complete with climax?
More 1967 as this Summer proceeds.
