The one fact about popular music which can be stated with authority and no serious risk of contradiction is that it travels in circles. The circles may be wide in circumference and it may take decades for pop music to return to the initial point of departure, but it inevitably does just that in the end. Those old enough to remember what was going on before the circular journey began usually scoff derisively at younger generations who enthuse about the ‘new’ trend or sound. The youngsters in turn tend to view these deprecating assertions with suspicion, often to the extent of actually checking up on whether Grandpa really did serenade Grandma in their courting days with the current No. 1 hit now recorded in a somewhat different manner by Willie Precipice.
