Sunday Baroque

Music, at its essence, is what gives us memories. And the longer a song has existed in our lives, the more memories we have of it. – Stevie Wonder

  1. So THAT is what has happened to civilization.

    In the past a concerto may last a near ten minutes or longer.

    Today’s music lasts 2 to 3 minutes for radio play.

    So music sped up for advertisements during radio play
    and our experience ends in buying, buying, buying.

    Which ends in a three minute hit leading us to buy a toaster
    on sale and if this persists we end up buying multiply toasters
    ending becoming a “toaster hoarder”!

    Because of that we are chastised by our community and looked down
    upon just because instead of a calm life of a concerto we end up with
    a “do-wa, do-wa” life of radio play.

    The shame of it all.

    And as Stevie says, “. . . the more memories we have of it.”

    Cheers for your Sunday!
