Hemingway, Kerouac, Twain, Dickens, Shakespeare - there are so many great authors in the history of modern literature. But what we want to do is celebrate some of the great wordsmiths in Rock and Roll - Dylan, Springsteen, Lennon, McCartney, Bowie, Billy Joel, Freddy Mercury - the ones who sing rather than write. There's a quote that fits every situation - just make sure you're wearing it.

The source of inspiration for songs since the beginning of time. True love, lost love, unrequited love, we have them all from the life mottos - "Love is all you need" - through the celebrations - "You're so sweet, you're so fine" all the way to the gritty reality - "You scumbag, you maggot, you cheap lousy faggot". Wear your emotions!
Song has always been the chosen weapon of the bard - as the man said, all of human life is here. Feel good? Feel blue? New start? Old regrets? You can be sure someone has put it to music somewhere...
Ever since Robert Johnson sold his soul to the devil down at the crossroads, the Blues have been the root of the musical tree, but more than just a genre, they are a state of mind. Here you'll find some of the greatest cries of love, anguish, joy and pain - "If it wasn't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all" - maybe so, but at least you can go down with a cool shirt..
On the road again? Or just Standing on a Corner? Maybe you're leaving on a Jet Plane or feel like you could Walk 500 miles, at least leave the house looking sharp, and don't forget that perfect luggage tag - after all, your spaceship probably knows which way to go..
Somebody once said "Everything makes sense to somebody" - actually I think it was my mother. Drugs, alcohol or just being high on life have inspired the kind of lyrics that just cry out to be worn.
I see children cry, I watch them grow. Well now they can have their say. How do you know that angelic little bundle isn't screaming "Come on baby, light my fire" on the inside? Just watch out for the one humming "I feel the earth move.."
