We get it. I get it. Lived it. But in making a point one must be sure the point is made by pointing out correct…points. She need not be ‘devastated’ by Barbara Streisand’s song “My Man.” Actually? It was sung my Streisand but she is singing it in the film “Funny Girl.” She is Fanny Brice. And? Truth be told? Fanny did a damn better than her love Nicky Arnstein. He was a cad. A crook. And she loved him still. That? Is what the song is about but she finally divorced him and became an iconic performer. When one reads Ray Charles and “misogynist America” it seems a contradiction in terms. Actually, a great deal of the lyrics in his tunes finds him suffering at love. Not the other way around. Thing is, there is much to be said about this topic but look no further than the current hip-hop which has had to take a hard look at itself and leave Dean Martin alone. He was far more fun. And seriously? Don’t take the songs of the past seriously. Andy Helman West Seattle We encourage our readers to comment. No registration is required.
