River will have a Musical Monday. River posted various clips of Jon English but here is mine that has a special meaning to me.
My life could have take a couple of paths. I fell into a very conservative one but I was very tempted by a free living and a hedonistic lifestyle. Maybe conservative types are right and music corrupts youth, although that does seem to be a thing from the past and I think they gave up after they heard the horrid rapper lyrics.
But hey, how good would it be to be in Hollywood and renting a room for $7 a night. One can dream and wonder about what might have been.
Jon English died last week, and he would not deny he was a hedonist who lived life to its full. Hollywood Seven is what I remember him for most. Curiously, the song is totally American in its references. Here is a link to the lyrics, mentioning Hollywood of course, but also Syracuse and Omaha.
