Re: the question about feeling nothing for anything post-'69.

Answer: Absolutely nothing. The 60s is clearly a cultural high water mark.

I can think of absolutely nothing made after '69 that compares to how it had been done before. All those things you listed I can't stand, and don't compare with The Beatles, The Stones, Dylan, Hendrix, Tony Hancock, Steptoe, Python etc.....and since when was little ol' punk a 'Revolution'! - the clash couldn't buy a top 10 hit.

The only exception, which I mentioned before, is the ability (thank the Lord) to access the past, which is far easier than it would have been in 1964.....but then, why would anyone living in 1964 wanted to have accessed the past!

I'll be right on that Jeremy Clarkson story, you see.

Oh agree of the Clarkson thing. It's what all the papers are saying.just don't see following the money as a particularly modern trait.

You hate everything made after 69? Wow.

Your comment in general, and this thread focusing on Rain in particular bring to mind a moment from my college days waaaay back in the mid-'80s.

That's when I was in college too. Sounds like the DJ knew what you were talking about but like you said he couldn't come up with it. I think you guys would enjoy Pandora radio. Once you I got it "trained" it plays some really cool stuff. I've been introduced to a lot of things I'd never heard before but now love.

Definitely sounds like the 80s. You nailed it.

I do appreciate DEVO. They nailed it too. De-evolution is real, and I'm ducking and covering, hoping I'm not around for the very end.

It'll be ugly.

Jeremy Clarkson has finally been sacked from 'Top Gear' (always thought 'Top Gear' was a late 60s Peel show).

Expect within a few weeks news of a Sky contract and a considerably higher wage.
Thatcher's children may be c*** at cinema, television, pop music, theatre, sport etc. etc. but boy can they sniff out a pay cheque. 

Chelsea supporter n'all.....figures.
Yes, I too long for the sixties glory days of the baby boomers, with their homophobia, drug abuse, sexism, racism and abuse. Oh, and thanks to their "I can do what I want" ethos cheers for the legacy of AIDS, rampant consumerism, drug addled one parent families and a decimated environment. Happy days.

I overstate things for effect of course. But do you really feel nothing for modern times (ie post 1969)? Nothing from the Punk Revolution, New Wave, grunge, dance or Britpop? The Clash? New Order? The Smiths? Blur? The Young Ones, Black Adder, The Good Life, Men Behaving Badly etc? (I won't name British movies, as I think they generally suck, whatever the decade)

Could be argued that the sixties as some kind of cultural high water for the UK, but I struggle to accept that other decades were so barren. I hung onto popular culture until about 2000, when it began to confuse and befuddle me. But I'll happily accept that its not it that became boring and irrelevant. It's me.

I agree that volume 1 is the better of the two. However, there are some good moments on the second one and I'm not sorry I bought it.

What are your favourites on volume 2? Interested to see which made most impact. I haven't listened to it for a while.

LOL Using iTunes has been like trying to eat soup with chopsticks in the last few years so I found an alternative program. Apple doesn't want us putting anything on their devices that we didn't buy from their store.

The one thing you can do (at least you could when I tried it around a year ago) is upload CDs. Which for a long time made up the bulk of my iTunes library.

I'm interested in the alternative you found though. I will check it out.
