What I Learned from Rock 'n' Roll
With the school year coming to a close we can now reflect on what we've learned - specifically what we've learned from rock 'n' roll. Lyrics are full of life lessons, adages...take-aways.
Paul Simon offers, "One man's ceiling is another man's floor." Tracy Chapman reminds us, "All that you have is your soul." And "You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you get what you need" is from The Stones.
Share a line from a song that has stuck with you as words of wisdom. We'll spin a set after 9 a.m.
Here's what we played:
Brandi Carlile "The Things I Regret"
But when you're wearing on your sleeve,
All the things you regret,
You can only remember what you want to forget
Do Diddley "You Can't Judge a Book by It's Cover"
You can't judge a book by it's cover
The Grateful Dead "Franklin's Tower"
If you plant ice you’re gonna harvest wind
The Staple Singers "Respect Yourself"
If you don't respect yourself
Ain't nobody gonna give a good cahoot
