Caught Out of Time


This is partially in response to Lee who has a really good one up today…

M and I have often had conversations about feeling that we weren’t born at quite the right time in history, almost as if we really should have been born at some other time but ended up now by mistake… Well, here’s the theme song for that particular feeling.

  1. I love that song. I wrote a short story based on it, actually. Never got it published,but I’m half inclined to go play with it again.

    Well of course I’ve thought that about myself!

    I’m just old enough and I lived in the right circumstances to experience and fall in love with traditional Anglo-Catholicism and then watch it be destroyed just about everywhere.

    I probably won’t know why until I’m in the hereafter.

    Ending this comment on a slightly happier note I brought this up in my blog on my most recent birthday and ended up quoting the ‘preacher’ part from Stevie Wonder’s ‘As’.

  3. Look, you guys: if you can even UNDERSTAND the words of those yelled lyrics, then you are definitely of THIS historical moment! Definitely!

    I stopped being able to understand contemporary “music” lyrics just after Sergeant Pepper….they might as well all be in Hungarian for all I can tell….

    Give me a chunk of good old degenerate late medieval church Latin any day – and chanted, please, not yelled…(risus!)

  4. We’ve had that conversation as well. Of course, for us, we’d probably pick the 40’s or 50’s. Just think, the emergence of rockabilly AND the height of American Anglo-Catholicism!
