LET IT BE ~ The Beatles ~ 1970
When I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
And in my hour of darkness

Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.
And when the broken hearted people

William Burroughs, who also was very much into drugs, wrote such novels such as Junky, and “Naked Lunch, which made Burroughs an underground celebrity, and is widely considered his best work.3” Burroughs is in fact though, “the only major beat figure not strongly influenced by Buddhist thought.4” Jack Kerouac, who had wrote the great novel, On The Road, contained great reference to jazz.

... Ben Gillies, and he, were bored. So they decided to start a band.
When they did they made up a song called "Tomorrow." They entered it into a
contest that was held in their city. The judges loved it, so they got to
record a single with the song "Tomorrow." Their first single. Then they
played it on the radio and everybody loved it. Everybody went and bought

them lived about 5 minutes from each other and went to the same school.
They were only 12 and 13 ...
Dave Matthews' "Dancing Nancies"
... new instruments combined with the old ones: acoustic guitars, the electric bass and the drums, the new band created a sound that almost laughed in the face of modern pop rock and quickly rose to the charts. The debut of “Dancing Nancies” on the band's first professional album entitled, Under the Table and Dreaming, was a prime example of what Dave Mathews Band was capable of.
“Dancing Nancies” encompasses life in its theme by raising an important question about it, “Could I have been anyone other then me?” Some people would read this question and see nothing more then a simple sentence. Perhaps focusing on the media exposure, they are often the ones who fail t ...

In 1947, when Jim was four, the Morrison family was driving through a desert in New Mexico when they came upon a car wreck.
“The first time I discovered death,” said Morrison, “me, my mother and father, and grandmother and grandfather, were driving through the desert at dawn. A truckload of Indians had either hit another car or something – there were Indians scattered all over the highway, bleeding to death. So we pulled the car up…I don’t remember ever seeing a movie, and sud ...
History Of Rock And Roll
... The fact that groups were spending months, weeks, or hours in a studio, writing 15- minute songs, and playing elaborate shows with spectacular stage performances in front of thousands of people in large arenas really angered punk bands. Punk songs were generally simple and rather short. The lyrics told the way the members of the band felt. They played small shows and did not put on any elaborate performances.
The Sex Pistols were the epitome of a punk band. They were discovered in an antifashion clothing store in London called Sex by Malcolm McLaren, the store’s owner. Johnny Rotten, the band’s lead singer, was found while singing along to the jukebox. Sid Vicious ...

it!" These rock performers cannot turn down a dare or back away from even the
slightest bit of public notoriety. By listening to one of their
"questionable" albums, it is easily noticeable how they thrive off of it. All
of these performers do have one thing in common, at one time or another,

Paul Simon: I Am A Rock
... says that he "has no need of friendship."
The person in the poem wants to be left alone, like an island, or a rock.
In the second stanza, he says "I've built a wall, a fortress deep and mighty."
He has built a mental block to all outsiders, and he compares this to an
inpenetrable wall. Inpenetrable walls keep unwanted things out: bad feelings,
love, etc. Then, in the third line of this stanza, he says "I have no need of
friendship - friendship causes pain, It's laughter and loving I disdain." He
said that he doesn't want friendship because it just causes pain, and that the
laughter and loving he hates or despises. He wants to be left alone, like it
says in th ...
