When the Beatles came out with their mega hit “She Loves You”, the “yeah, yeah, yeah” lyric was scoffed at by parents everywhere. “You call that music?!” they sneered. A lot of good that did. Beatlemania raged on and anyone over 30 was looked upon with disdain… until rock stars and their fans had a few more birthdays.
It’s 2012. Welcome to the new generation gap. With that, here is today’s L.A. Times letter from the editor, because our voices matter, and because I couldn’t resist:
Tony Bennett: “The loveliness of Paris seems somehow sadly gay/ The glory that was Rome is of another day/ I’ve been terribly alone and forgotten in Manhattan/ I’m going home to my city by the bay.”
Justin Bieber: “And I was like/ Baby, baby, baby, oh/ Like/ Baby, baby, baby, no.”
