Toujours en vacances, j’adresse un petit clin d’oeil musical à la perfide Albyon en ces temps de Jeux Olympiques, et ainsi je suis heureuse d’évoquer en son le Swinging London des années 60, qui fut une grande référence en matière de musique, constituant la base de ma discothèque.
Ready? Steady! Go!!
A Youth movement that struck London during the 60s. Where fashion, music art and culture took over the city, changing the world completely. It’s where it all happened.. Cultural Revolutions, British fashion, Rock and Roll, Dance crazes, The Carnaby Cavem, The mods, The beatniks, The Rockers, The Beatles, The mini skirt, Twiggy, Bell Bottoms, Rebellion, Optimism, experimental music, Biba, Drugs and millions of other things, swarmed London making a crazed, unique and hallucinogenic atmosphere, that centred around flower-power-free-love-lifestyle, Groovy colors, fashion, cars and music.
The hair got longer, the skirts got shorter, the music got louder and the drugs got better.
Words cannot describe how amazing this time was, reading up on it, several people describe it a daydream, something that cannot be put into words and something which is simply revolutionary. My heart aches knowing it will be something i can never experience.. But it won’t be something i forget about, i will attend London 60s week, and keep reading books, finding artists and focusing my life on the things that era did, i will get as damn close as i can to reliving it (even if my groupie days have subsided for a while) i WILL.
Ne vivez jamais sans musique
