Then and Now A Look at Sexual Tension from the 70's

I propose a question- Is it right to hold people to the standards of a new erra? Conversation please...  

OKay. Those who know me will say this is just another "Pam" moment - but I had to write.  this is a crone moment for me for sure, I really was very innocent when I was as a kid.  Even tho I was barefoot walking down the street smoken cigarettes and weed. 

My favorite band at the time was STYX and Crystall Ball. Not for the witchy obvious reasons, but if My father hadn't gotten involved and stopped me from going to the Holiday Inn that night room 611 -  Ian would be named Tommy and the song I'm about to refer to would be names Pamela. Styx was playing most nights in my room with my full voice added to the sounds of Tommy Shaw, JY, Chuck and John Panozzo  behind Dennis DeYoung. I think the only reason I got away with it was my mother is partially deaf! Last year my son Ian talked me into getting a Spotify account and it just occurred to me I could play the vinyl my son has so conveniently confiscated on my Alexa. COMPUTER Play Styx Crystal Ball.  I was so excited - the second I heard the first note I remembered at the concert how they opened with that little bit of guitar. I was sitting right no the stage.  It was amazing.  Then Jennifer song two came on and I remembered every word... and as I sang a red flush came over me, the shock of the words so easily coming out of my mouth. 

Times really were different then.  I propose a question- Is it right to hold people to the standards of a new erra? Conversation please...  I of course am referring to people like Senator Franken. a do goodeer - taken out by a few bad jokes Which is to me much different from a bare-ass producer flashing his tiny shtick.  I understand the women feel badly about the situation but not all of this is rape. It seems to be swinging too far to one side - What do you think? I was 14 when this song was popular on the radio...

Lyrics

Jennifer
She drinks her sherry wine
She keeps her lady's love for me all the time
She's seventeen, barely old enough to cry
A child in her father's eyes
A woman every night

Her love,
Gives me the power
Her dreams carry me on
Jennifer, so inviting
That I sing

Jennifer
She took me by surprise
She told me that she's much too young to keep me satisfied
Jennifer, ah so delicate and shy
A child in her mother's eyes but
A woman every night

Her love,
Gives me the power
Her dreams carry me on
Jennifer, so inviting
That I sing
