Classic Rock


LYRICS

Like many other vehicles of popular culture, many rock music lyric-sets will not bowl you over with their profundity and civility, though there is a range. Typical, stereotypical now, rock themes are sex, drugs or alcohol, rock music, itself, touring, and fast cars.

I'm pleased to inform you, however, that there is a plethera of meaningful 1960's rock and folk-rock songs that are extremely meaningful. In fact, one of the key reasons to learn about rock music is that this form of music was the soundtrack to some of the most profound events in American and world history.


RELEASES

CLASSIC

Led Zeppelin - Houses of the Holy


SUPERB, though not necessarily "classic," as such.

Deep Purple, Burn

White Lion, Pride. Another fine and unique 1980's hard rock/light metal release, laced with optimism, though let us remember that a loving world can certainly be built and supported on a basis other than "God."


GENERALLY EXCELLENT

Lou Reed - Rock n Roll Animal
