It’s important to have perspective these days. Times are changing, you know, and it can be hard to keep track of how things used to be. In that vein, I found an interesting quote from 1978:
Children who begin school today have probably listened to more music than their great grandparents heard in their entire lives.It’s pretty hard to imagine music as such a treat, since I listen to it pretty much every day.
This also reminds me of the Stravinky’s Rite of Spring, which was so raucous that it caused riots. These days people get offended by rap, punk and video games (oh my!), and claim that they make children into little ne’er-do-wells.
Riots though? I can’t imagine music causing riots ever again.
I love getting feedback and comments. Make my day by making a comment.
