my occasional musings on life, love, art, perfume ... what else is there?

Plus Ça Change, Plus C’est La Meme Chose

There's something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware

I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
There's battle lines being drawn
Nobody's right if everybody's wrong

Young people speaking their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind
I think it's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

What a field-day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly say, hooray for our side

It's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
You step out of line, the man come and take you away

We better stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, now, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

lyrics from Buffalo Springfield, circa 1969, when I was young, and long-haired, and torn-jeansed and carried a sign in the streets, and believed in The Revolution.

Now I wonder, what perfume would you wear to The Revolution?

Bal a Versailles - it seems appropriately big enough, heh.

Some loved the smell of napalm in the morning.
The Marijuana smell was more popular with the flower-power crowd.

I am going to wear Bois d'Armenie to vote, but hey, that ain't no revolution, is it?

I have no idea what I would wear, but ever since I read this I've had that song stuck in my head, so thanks!

I don't know what I'd wear, but we definitely need a revolution!
