Sunshine of Your Love and the Explicit Ambiguity of Rock and Roll

“But if I really say it, the radio won’t play it, unless I lay it between the lines.”

Open Shutter Light Werks Montage by the author.

It’s been often noted how certain smells can vividly bring us back to moments in our past, and I think music often does the same. Yesterday “Sunshine of Your Love” by the 60’s super group Cream did this for me.
