Soul Music

Rick Brannan finds analogues to Biblical passages in the titles of songs by James Brown, and Ed Cook writes a fascinating and learned note on the connection between a Bob Dylan album and a passage in the book of Genesis.

I can sort of follow the Biblical part of these discussions, but the musical parts go over my head. For me, popular music ends with Bing Crosby or perhaps Mel Tormé. I was a teenager in the 1960s, but when I hear my coevals talk about "our music," I tune out. It was never "my music."
