Sound of Music

Does your car have a radio? That was a common question when teens drove twenty-year-old cars in the 1950s.

So, what does that have to do with today’s title?

Nothing except to help you understand my speaking of the sound of music is from octogenarianism and other syndromes related to having been a teen in the 1950s.

Remember the T-shirt with the saying, “If it is too loud, you are too old?”

I was too old when I was a teenager! I liked music, but I wasn’t a priority in my life at that time, so a radio in any of my many junkers of those days wasn’t all that important.

Radios and cars was not the thought I started with, but you know I get off track.1I don’t mean eight track.

And I’m not taking a poke at “your music” whatever that may be. Everyone has a right to like or dislike.

I thought about this during the Super-Bowl half-time show. I didn’t pick up on more than a few of the words in Rihanna’s presentations. I’m sure she has a pleasing voice, but it doesn’t make sense to me that the instruments were many decibels over her volume.

Rock and Roll was expanding during my teen years, but when a vocal started, the instrument volume went down. Well, that’s the way I remember it – so there!
