The term generation can be used as a measure of time, knowledge, and information with reference to past or future ages.
I’m gonna tell ya a clink of time that belongs to Baby Boomers generation.
Baby Boomers, often shortened to boomers, are the demographic cohort following the Silent Generation and preceeding Generation X.
Words of wisdom is the message of learning brought from generation to generation that will change the world to be a better place for mankind to live.
What astounding events that had happened during those days? Here’s a few:
I grew up in the music of the Beatles (John, Paul, Ringo & George). A generation, when a style of bell bottom pants and long hairs in beatles' cuts were trending.
Their songs can be heard regularly over the radio and in many celebrated occassions.
This group of musicians became famous out of failure, when Decca Recording Company (DRC) turned down their music. DRC said, "We don't like their sound."
Finally, at the end of the Beatles band tale, the group was listed in the Hall of Fame.
They never gave up! 🌴
Here’s one big thing.
Who said it is impossible to land on the moon? Until the first man, US astronaught Neil Armstrong, stepped on the moon with Apollo 11.
"That's one small step for man, a giant leap for mankind", Armstrong uttered words that was WRITTEN IN HISTORY for generations to come.
No internet and mobile phones in my college days.
Aji-No-Moto, had started to invade kitchens as food seasoning.
Library was a place for reading tabloids, spreadsheets, books, and research.
No malls around for people to go by and shop.
Shakey’s was famous for a live band shows and draft beer with pizza pies. The emerging Folk House Music Bars in some places for people to unwind and hangout with friends.
With no traffic lights in every major corner of the streets.
Black and white TV for those who can afford. No cableTV. Movies were the only past time in many theatres. And people prefers FM Radio stations for oldies but goodies and latest songs. One will buy songs in casette tapes simply if they wouldn’t get any airplay.
Now, I can link MUSIC with my rhythm in my blog, INSIGHTS INTO THE FUTURE maybe it’s an attention-span thing. Not even a hundred years old yet, one already bears a thousand-year load of worries. So music in one way can lessen loads one is carrying about.
Music is now a backdrop to our lives rather than an event to itself. Boomers generation has its kind of beautiful musics made of rock, pop, love songs, and gospel songs touching many hearts.
I can’t remember the last time I heard of LP album and listened to songs “Bridge Over Troubled Water” by Simon and Garfunkel, and “Skyline Pigeon” by Elton John.
