Not my stuff

Dirt, dry, bone, sand and stone
barbed wire fence cut me down,
I'd like to be around....

take a spiral staircase,
to the higher ground

(U2, or what I thought I heard them sing, in The Unforgettable Fire)

so 1980s. so much need for release and upliftment.
where's it all gone now? where's the spirit of rock n roll?
why is it all about bling and diamonds?
or the eternal favourite, love?

even the Stones. a bigger bang is testosterone-heavy, like they always are.very cool and hip.
but what i wouldn't give for another anthem, like Satisfaction? or, like Mr Dylan's "Like a rolling Stone"?

that's how this blog is named, after all.
