GUEST,TJ in San Diego The wimpiest song ever? Or is it deep? (127* d) RE: The wimpiest song ever? Or is it deep? 21 Dec 09


Some, of a certain age, will recall the poet/singer Rod McKuen. He was hugely popular in the sixties, many of his verses done by such groups as The Kingston Trio and The Limeliters. At the height of his popularity, he also developed a legion of detractors who loved to label his work as "pap," "vacuous" or "wimpy." I was never an unabashed fan, but I know that the Bee Gees experienced some of the same love/hate stuff in their day. A typical detractor - A musician friend who honed his chops in jazz likes to characterize their music as "rhythm & blues for people who have neither."
