There Was A Time
T. Rex Lyrics

There was a time everything was fine
You could drink all the day
Like it was wine
And All the children
They Put flowers in their hair
And all the grown-ups
They put daggers there instead.

I know it shows my age, but listening to stuff like this and Mott and Bowie and Hawkwind only serves to point up what absolutely soulless shit passes for popular music these days (well, to be fair, the last 20 years isn't anything to write home about)

Brett Hernan

You aren't showing your age, you're showing your taste. Few kids today seem to understand the importance of melody and so few of them are musically talented enough to even compose a song with a millionth of the skill of an artist like Bolan.

Alicia Kenerley

Hawkwind, I haven't heard of them in quite a while.

Paul Fitz
