There is so much I could center this blog post around, but let's just narrow it down to music. A lot of what people heard on the popular radio was a representation of cultural sentiments, often antagonistic towards the Establishment. There are links to three songs below--listen to all of them if you'd like, but I want you to look up the lyrics (or in the case of the third, consider the song and the performance) to at least one of them and consider why this song is so monumental toward the times.
We will try to talk music, film, sports, and as much culture as we can in class!
