I present two examples of music of their time: one is the smiths "how soon is now" and the other is cabaret Voltaire's "sensoria". Both came out within a year of each other, and both speak to the themes of loneliness, fear, despair and alienation. The context:The cold war, PLO, the troubles, industrialization run amok, the Israel/Lebanon conflict. Both are a product of their time. Paranoid music for paranoid people.
Enjoy. And give thanks that we live in times where Miley is the worst that can happen.http://youtu.be/hnpILIIo9ekhttp://youtu.be/sz5y16UllvA
