Post Modern Prayers Quick Links: 1960s 1970s 1980s-1990s

What’s goin on by Marvin Gaye is still tragically relevant today as does the sentiment behind the lyrics for I am woman by Helen Reddy – particularly in light of the million woman protest march in 2017. Other typical activities from the 1970s like teens running wild smoking pot everywhere (Hotel California & White punks on dope), and running cars through the streets and highways (Born to run & Runnin on empty) have become relegated to the fringes and are no longer mainstream group activities becoming pursuits of past history. But these songs were absolutely Post Modern Prayers – they described how the world really was and for many the music informed the world how to think.
