Watched a PBS program – fifty years with Peter, Paul, & Mary. They defintely would not have been successful in today’s music scene.
Their lyrics were intelligible.
Their lyrics had meaning.
They sang in tune.
Their songs were purposeful.
They were modestly dressed. Noone pulled on his dick during a performance.
Noone’s underwear was visible.
They were not foul mouthed.
They advocated for what would better humanity.
None of their lyrics were degrading of females or gays.
None of their lyrics were racist.
They were anti-war.
How were they able to be so popular for fifty years?
What has changed?
When was the last time you heard a love song from this era in pop music? By love I mean actual love not sex, or sexting, or hooking up, of FWB.
