Christ the New David
Of all the old stuff I have, much of it is pretty hard to listen to. At one point, I though Lamb III was a cool album, but it hasn't held up well across the years. Likewise the Peter Paul and Mary Album 1700. I did not have a big collection of vinyl back in the day, but what I had, I played. That Album 1700 has some deep grooves in me, but I just don't have much juice for it now.
Curiously, but probably not too surprisingly, the music that still holds up is the Beatles. I have Abbey Road, and the 1967-1970 albums, and even though I was not much of a Beatles fan back in the day, this music is fun to listen to. Oh, there is probably some Boomer nostalgia in the mix -- few who went to high school and college in the late 60's and early 70's will be immune to "Hey Jude" -- but if it were *only* nostalgia, then PP&M would have survived the years in better shape.
Good and interesting music, but the Beatles have a druggy guru flavor that finds no happy resonance in me. And so when I listen to "Across the Universe" and Lenon goes into his Hindu mantra, Jai guru deva om, Nothing's gonna change my world, well I need something else as that music rolls around in my head. So for "Jai guru deva" I sing "Christ the new David; No one else can change my world, Nothing else will change the world."
Christianizing lyrics usually comes off pretty lame. But I don't want a Hindu prayer making a groove in my music brain.
Of course, I could just turn off the player.
