From a Wonderful World to a Beautiful One
A Wonderful World:
Anything from Hotter Than July. That's star material, celestial body, guiding-light kind of stuff. Here forever. Forever a part of us.
You know, those songs that you grew up listening to because they were so hypnotic... easy to listen to, but you maybe never really paid attention to the words. You know, one of those songs?
From Wikipedia... and no, they aren't done either.
Well, there may come a day when you actually reflect on what those words were all about. And discover their weight. That moment when you find yourself singing along and actually getting the meaning, and think, "Same as it ever was".
No, not them either, but we're getting close.
The way they do it, the people who can now be considered 'social architects' - the artists, poets, and musician who aren't quite "Top 40" material... but who seem to know a thing or two about king-makers.

A Beautiful World:
'How did that song go?' he wonders.
It’s a beautiful world we live inA sweet romantic placeBeautiful people everywhere,The way they show they care, makes me want to say,“It’s a beautiful world...For you...For you...”
'Cause he can remember the video. And how it punked him. Got him to think. Starting out with roses, blooming, blossoming, beauty pageants, snow, Diamond Head (Waikiki) in the background. Then it started. How people blow up or burn those bridges (meant to be comic) and then how they burn those crosses - not funny. Not funny at all.
Big business didn't like it.
You see what I mean?
For you, is it beautiful?
Hope this was worth your time. 'Cause somethin' is starting to happen.
If this is indeed going to turn into some kind of divide and conquer, full of battles, a kind of civil war, I'm tempted as hell to say:
Let the profiteering begin!
