Your Stuck in my Head Song of the Day

Yeah I still have a bit of a revolutionary bug. Anyway I've had this song in my head since this morning when I was trying to formulate my revolution post. It's I Wish I Was A Punk Rocker With Flowers in My Hair by Sandi Thom and it's a song that I can definitely relate- I feel I would have been an awesome revolutionary figure if I was of age in the last 60s.


Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair
In 77 and 69 revolution was in the air
I was born too late and to a world that doesn't care
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair

When the head of state didn't play guitar,
Not everybody drove a car,
When music really mattered and when radio was king,
When accountants didn't have control
And the media couldn't buy your soul
And computers were still scary and we didn’t know everything

When popstars still remained a myth
And ignorance could still be bliss
And when God Saved the Queen she turned a whiter shade of pale
When my mom and dad were in their teens
and anarchy was still a dream
and the only way to stay in touch was a letter in the mail

When record shops were on top
and vinyl was all that they stocked
and the super info highway was still drifting out in space
kids were wearing hand me downs,
and playing games meant kick arounds
and footballers still had long hair and dirt across their face

I was born too late to a world that doesn't care
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair

Yeah, I would have loved to have been alive back then. ::sigh:: Plus, and I was kicking myself this morning when I thought of it, it was such an easy Halloween costume- dress like a punk rocker and maybe arrange a flower in a mohawk and voila. I'm sure most people wouldn't have gotten it, but I don't really ever do things for the "masses" I just wih I had thought of it last week. Anyway here is the official video (that I ripped from youtube because "embedding is disabled") of Your Stuck in My Head Song of the Day- Sandi Thom's "I Wish I Was A Punk Rocker (With Flowers in My Hair)
