mandoleer Songs We're Too Cool To Sing (84* d) RE: Songs We're Too Cool To Sing 22 Jun 05


Saints was regarded as cool by a bunch of young Liverpool girls playing it on recorders (two playing tambourines at the same time!) and a snare drum when they brought the house down at St George's Hall in a BBC Music Live concert. The other schools taking part didn't know you could SWING with recorders... (Another fond memory of that concert is asking the bus driver for 'One and eleven halves' on the way down...). Apart from which, I regularly join in with Athenry and don't care. In my opinion (very far from humble), those who worry about being cool aren't. Those that just don't care what people think are far cooler. Cool is what you can get away with. Cool is being a leader not a follower. Cool is doing what seems cool to you at the time - and not worrying about it. (My bike has been described as 'cool' by kids with very modern shiny machines - it's of uncertain age, is lime green and day-glo orange and has a grey and purple luggage compartment at the rear - which amuses me somewhat.)
