- A song for each of the following decades beginning with A
- A lyric snippet from at least one of those songs to set you thinking... and commenting!
‘...the half-time air was sweet perfume...’ that'll be the drugs!
Or was it not like that where you grew up?
Phil Collins wrote this song after seeing homeless people sleeping on the streets in cardboard boxes.
'She calls out to the man in the street,
Sir, can you help me?
It's cold and I've nowhere to sleep...'
...He walks on, doesn't look back.
He pretends he can't hear her...'
I'd like to say that I've never done that but I have, when I visit London, rushing off to the theatre, expensive tickets in my bag. I'm embarrassed, scared, not sure what is the best way to help.
What do you do when you see homeless people begging on the streets?
Will money given just be spent on drugs?
And I could have added:
'What's it all about, Alfie...' I never did find an answer to that question, and as for '...through it all she offers me protection...' yes, I do believe that we have Guardian Angels but that's for a whole different blog post.
If you have a favourite song from one of these decades that says something to you, something more than just ‘moons and Junes’, then let me know, along with your blog link if you have one, and I’ll include it if I can.
