When I’m driving for Uber I always play classical music in the car because even if one doesn’t like classical music, one cannot possibly be offended by it. That’s not necessarily the case with rap, hip hop, and even rock and roll. I can immediately think of a song where John Lennon says “f**k” and another where Joan Jett sings “Starf**ker” which is also the name of the song. Not knowing when the offensive language might come up in a song prevents me from listening in the car to songs with words while other people are riding along.
Yesterday, one of my riders commented how nice it was that someone was listening to classical music. That started a long conversation since it was a long ride to his destination, and we agreed that if they brought music (orchestra, band, chorus) back to grade schools, we might have a less angry world.
Following, then, are some songs about music in your day. If you have a favorite that I haven’t included, feel free to leave the name in a comment.
