Good for you Thomas.  I completely agree with you.  It may just be a 
function of our age.

Ah, the Interlude Period, as in a temporary break in the action. That does 
fit the Doggie In the Window / Mama Will Bark Era. It just doesn't seem to
measure up to the intensity of the big band years or the rockabilly years in
terms of exciting music. Some stuff, sure, but decidedly bland by comparison
with that which surrounded it.The armchair social historian in me wants to 
an explanation for all that by looking st the folks who had just survived a
horrific war and found great comfort in the peacefulness of Dinah Shore 
and the escapist humor of Spike Jones. Has there ever been another act that 
close to the zany sounds of Spike? Ever? And for ten years America loved 
stuff. Gotta ask - why?Sent from my iPod - which explainz any bad typjngOn
