Red face Manuel Noriega

It is interesting to note that rock and roll did in fact assist in the capture of Mr. "Pineapple Face" (and former C.I.A. payroll employee) Manuel Noriega: American forces trapped him in the Vatican consulate where they decided to blast AC/DC music repeatedly and at full volume in order to flush him out. This worked like a charm.

Indeed! And, it gave 7-Eleven owners all across America a great idea - blare the Captain and Tennille outside their stores to keep teenagers from hanging out outside!

They actually did that with the McDonald's at 3rd and Pine in Seattle: play country music to keep the rap-kids away!!

Cool End of the 80's

So the 80's did not end quite the way the 60's or 70's had; there was no massive celebration of youth culture such as Woodstock,
no self-destruction of innocence such as Altamont. No music scene self-imploded like punk, there was no backlash against a trend such as the Death to Disco at Comiskey Park. At the end of the 80's, people couldn't have been happier--Paula Abdul, Milli Vanilli, and Slaughter ruled the charts. And we all had MTV to thank for opening our eyes. And ears?

But while the music scene was blissfully tepid, one radical effect of rock and roll had on people was help bring down the Soviet bloc in Eastern Europe. There was no greater gift from America than to provide music that gave a voice to frustrated, desperate people languishing behind the Iron Curtain. We all remember the beer commercials those happy, jubilant days of young people singing and dancing before the cameras celebrating their liberation from oppression after decades. It was beautiful and encouraging. Rock and roll had triumphed. When Bruce Springsteen later toured Eastern Europe, thousands had sang along with him: "BORN IN THE U.S.A.!!!!!"

Cool Neil Young--Freedom

We have seen Neil Young and his album Freedom previously here, and now it is time to feature one more song from the album, "No More":

No More

Livin' on the edge of night
You know the sun won't go down slow
You don't know which drug is right
Can't decide which way you wanna go
I feel the way you feel
'Cause not so long ago
It had a hold on me
I couldn't let it go
It wouldn't set me free
It wouldn't set me free
No more, no more, no more.

Seemed like the easy thing
To let it go for one more day
Like singin' the same old song
And twistin' the words
In a different way
Where did the magic go
I searched high and low
I can't find it no more
I can't get it back
I can't find it no more
I can't find it no more
No more, no more, no more, no more.

Searchin' for quality
Havin' to have the very best
Now scroungin' for quantity
Never havin' time
To do the test
That's how the story goes
Can't put it down
Till the last page
I can't put it down
I can't put it down
I can't put it down.

Talking The Eighties Are Over!

And so, on December 31, 1989, the ball dropped over Times Square and the year - and the eighties - ended.

Or did they? It seems we've been stuck in the eighties ever since. Madonna, Michael Jackson, and their sycophantic fans think they're still hot. Donald Trump refuses to go quietly. The Simpson sisters learned everything they know from Milli Vanilli, and - guess what! - we even have the same kind of conservative faux-regular-guy tax-cutting Republican in the White House!

But anyway, when the eighties ended, it looked like the United States and the United Kingdom were entering a sedate period. Instead, there would be recession, war, despair, and uncertainty about the future - and all this would happen all at once in 1990!

So without further ado (unless anyone has more ado to unload here), we turn to. . .

THE 90'S!!!

Unhappy The End of the Innocence

And of course, something darker was taking shape in America. Don Henley sang about it in his classic 1989 hit, "The End of the Innocence":

The End of the Innocence

Remember when the days were long
And rolled beneath a deep blue sky
Didn’t have a care in the world
With mommy and daddy standing by
When happily ever after fails
And we’ve been poisoned by these fairy tales
The lawyers dwell on small details
Since daddy had to fly

But I know a place where we can go
That’s still untouched by man
We’ll sit and watch the clouds roll by
And the tall grass wave in the wind
You can lay your head back on the ground
And let your hair fall all around me
Offer up your best defense
But this is the end
This is the end of the innocence

O’ beautiful, for spacious skies
But now those skies are threatening
They’re beating plowshares into swords
For this tired old man that we elected king
Armchair warriors often fail
And we’ve been poisoned by these fairy tales
The lawyers clean up all details
Since daddy had to lie
But I know a place where we can go
And was away this sin
We’ll sit and watch the clouds roll by
And the tall grass wave in the wind
Just lay your head back on the ground
And let your hair spill all around me
Offer up your best defense
But this is the end
This is the end of the innocence

Who knows how long this will last
Now we’ve come so far, so fast
But, somewhere back there in the dust
That same small town in each of us
I need to remember this
So baby give me just one kiss
And let me take a long last look
Before we say good bye
Just lay your head back on the ground
And let your hair fall all around me
Offer up your best defense
But this is the end
This is the end of the innocence

Cool Neil Young

And now as we close the 80's, we are reminded of the words of Neil Young as he contemplated the confusion going on in his side of the globe perpetrated by a former congressman who became head of the C.I.A.: Keep on rockin' in the Free World!!

Rocking in the Free World

There's colors on the street
Red, white and blue
People shufflin' their feet
People sleepin' in their shoes
But there's a warnin' sign
on the road ahead
There's a lot of people sayin'
we'd be better off dead
Don't feel like Satan,
but I am to them
So I try to forget it,
any way I can.

Keep on rockin' in the free world,
Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world,
Keep on rockin' in the free world.

I see a woman in the night
With a baby in her hand
Under an old street light
Near a garbage can
Now she puts the kid away,
and she's gone to get a hit
She hates her life,
and what she's done to it
There's one more kid
that will never go to school
Never get to fall in love,
never get to be cool.

Keep on rockin' in the free world,
Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world,
Keep on rockin' in the free world.

We got a thousand points of light
For the homeless man
We got a kinder, gentler,
Machine gun hand
We got department stores
and toilet paper
Got styrofoam boxes
for the ozone layer
Got a man of the people,
says keep hope alive
Got fuel to burn,
got roads to drive.

Keep on rockin' in the free world,
Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world,
Keep on rockin' in the free world.

Cool A few more things to add here. . .

Tracy Chapman released her followup album Crossroads in 1989. It sold respectably, but because it was not the big smash her debut was, the idea of her or Suzanne Vega's or Shawn Colvin's records portending a female singer-songwriter trend in the nineties could pretty much be ignored.

The relative successes of Donna Summer's single "This Time I Know It's For Real" - her first hit in six years - and the Bee Gees's LP One (the appropriately named title song topped the adult-contemporary singles chart), however, portended a trend that would happen in the nineties. That was. . . the seventies craze! Everything 70's not only would be cool again, a lot of everything 70's that wasn't even cool in the seventies would suddenly be cool!

And so to the nineties. . . .
