    In my day, we knew how to be tawdry, and respectable!

    I have to explain it to my kid like this- "You're encountering this music, these rhythms, and these pop culture ideas about music for the first time.  I have gone through a couple cycles of this.   So it's not that the music is awful or anything.  It's just that I've heard that same chord progression and rhythm, coupled with that rhyme scheme and song structure about a hundred thousand times already."

      I've seen this thing before, over and over again. It gets a little more blunt each cycle, but its basically the same stuff.

      I remember how crazy the black community went over Janet Jackson, another child-hood star, making sexy videos and songs about 'anytime, anyplace.'

        I guess nobody has ever listened to any old blues!  

        ahem. There are some really dirty blues songs out there.

        How you do this morning’?

        Well, please, ma’am, make me just a lovin’ spoonful

        I’ve  done got crazy ‘bout my lovin’

        Well I just got to have my lovin’

        I’ll kill the policeman

        Knock down the sheriff

        It’s all about my lovin’

        My lovin’ spoonful

        Well I just got to have my lovin’…

        Well the womens in Greenwood
