Three of a kind #30

In a society with so much pressure to conform, it's always refreshing to hear a lyric that stresses the importance of individuality, of not running with the pack, of doing your own thing, so to speak. And today we're featuring three fine examples of such songs. (the fact that I've had to go back 30 and 40 years here may or may not be entirely coincidental. Do people even still write songs with lyrics like these?)

Eddie and the Hot Rods - Do Anything You Wanna Do mp3

The Kinks - I'm Not Like Everybody Else mp3

Mama Cass - Make Your Own Kind Of Music mp3

(mp3s available for 7 days)

I love that Kinks track! It hardly ever seems to be mentioned, does it? But for me it's up there with their best stuff. Thanks for posting.

No worries, Pete. Yes, I think it's a brilliant track too. Been having a bit of a Kinks kick this week, and that song's been leaping out at me like a trout on steroids!
