YouTube Music Video: Juice Newton – ‘Angel Of The Morning’ (1981)

A few days ago, I came across a rerun of Deadpool (2016) on some cable channel. As many of you, the soundtrack of the opening scene contains a song that sounded familiar. After a bit of searching on intertubes, I realized it was ‘Angel of the Morning’ by Juice Newton from 1981. While her version is a cover of the original version from 1967 or 1968, it is the most famous version- by a long shot. I cannot resist pointing out that most contemporary popular american entertainment (films, music etc) is recycled stuff from the era between 1940 and the early 2000s. Says a lot about the cultural sterility of past two decades, doesn’t it?

Enjoy! Comments?

    Another example of stagnation. There has been little change in “edgy” clothing and presentation in decades. First recording of “Angel of the Morning” in 1967, fifty three years ago. Fifty three years before 1967 was 1914. The cultural gap between 1914 and 1967 was huge. Between 1967 and 2020, not so much.

      The stagnation between the 90s and now is especially extreme. I was in a store with a younger (20s) friend of mine when a song came on he liked. He asked me if it was new, it sounded new but in fact it was from 1993….27 years ago. Can you imagine someone in 1993 wondering if a 1966 song was new? That never would have happened! Plus people pretty much look and dress the same as they did in the 90s. All the decades before then (at least in the 1900s) had their own seperate identities, not anymore.

    AH.. Music ingenuity and creativity. The recent peak was the 1970s. Started in the 40s for sure…. roots back in the 20s and 30s. High water mark across all genres was the 70s. All tides ebb. “financialization” began fucking creativity as profit seekers sought to capture creativity itself to ensure profit for themselves. It began immediately. Radio signaled the driveling greed by mass presentation. “Opportunity” Then everything became slowly duller and dumber and more contrived than created. Think. This is where “capitalism” and “communism” shake hands. Name one communist regime that wasn’t or isn’t comprised of a very few extremely wealthy and powerful people oppressing and screwing the shit out of the masses. Communist dictators and “leaders” CAPITALIZE on mass human resources. What, honestly and realistically is communism other than distilled capitalism on steroids?
