Saturday Music Poast: Bubblegummers

 When I got out of school my life was in the wind, typical kid, no idea where he was going or who he was. In truth I could have done anything I wanted. Unbeknownst to me, I wasn’t as dumb as I was led to believe, but I was a dumb enough kid that still had a lot of growing up to do. For my generation it was a funny age: our parents told us we had to find our own way; then they were shocked when some of us lost our way and others were lost altogether. I get how some parents today go to the opposite extreme: they suffocate their kids, not want them fluttering in the breeze made by ill winds. 

Music was a big thing to us then. The Motels played the throw-away toons that went on in the background when stupid things mattered, and important things didn’t.

    1. I thought so too, WV. I hadn’t heard it in ages…

  2. I thought from the video title that is was going to be a remake of Roy Orbison's hit: I used to tease my kids that the lyrics were actually "Only baloney"
