I wish I was a punkrocker with flowers in my hair, in ’77 and ’69 when music really mattered
Do you ever feel like you belong in another time period? Like you would want to experience the peace, and free love movement first hand. You want to be able to travel the country like your Aunt Debbie did. Going to JFK rallies, and protesting in the streets for civil rights.
The 60s were where it was at. The whole decade was proof that we can change things through the power of peace, and love. We could stand for what we believed in. Ready to stand up against oppression, and hate. All the while listening to some of the most influential music of the century. Music like Bob Dylan. The Rolling Stones. The Animals. Buffalo Springfield. And the funky James Brown.
But, the fight for civil right didn’t end in the 60s. No, it’s still going on today. There are still things that you can fight for. Put on this Women’s 1960s Groovy Baby Costume, and spread the word about free love, and peace. Don’t forget to pick up some fancy Go Go Boots, because you will be doing a lot of walking as you protest inequality. And you can do it while singing Sandi Thom’s “I wish I Was a Punkrocker” song. Put flowers in your hair, and listen to good old music, and good new music. And try to change the world a little while you do it!
