Thursday’s Theme Music

Reading the news yesterday and today, I was shaking my head, partially laughing while crying. You know, it was the same old story.

That led to me streaming Aerosmith.

It’s the same old story
Same old song and dance, my friend
It’s the same old story
Same old story
Same old song and dance

It was an easy song to identify with when I was a teenager and the song was released. When you asked questions, you often heard, “That’s just how it is. That’s how it goes.” It was always the same old song and dance, no matter what you were asked.

It’s a song and dance I’m getting tired of now with politics. It’s always one thing or another. Back in the military world, you tired of hearing you must do more with less — same old song and dance. Hurry up and wait — same old song and dance. In the corporate world, it became doing more with less, and then cut expenses and increase profits, or we can’t give you a bonus or pay raise, little boy, while they spread some B.S. about us being a family, or a team, and how much they care. Same old song and dance.

“Same Old Song and Dance”. Only the voices change.

  1. Insightful comments tagged to a raucous rocker! When we’re young we believe history is linear, forever upward (or downward), but its cyclical, and so if we live long enough we indeed hear the same old story over and over. Thus the old maxim that if we don’t learn from history, we’re doomed to repeat it.

    1. Thanks, mon ami. Yes, unfortunately, too many don’t recall history. Fewer learn from it. More learn a few hard lessons and then refuse to learn anything else, staying mired in another time and place, battling windmills that are no longer there.
