What do you want from life?

From guest writer Rob Moore. Thank you Rob for sharing a good word!

Back in the mid-1980s, during my college years, I was introduced to the rock band The Tubes by my roommate Rick from Cleveland.  Everything about The Tubes screamed controversial, from the risqué back cover of their self-titled first album (an actual LP album) to the somewhat salacious lyrics.  As a young man in college, I ate it up.  One of their more interesting songs was entitled “What do you want from life?”  As with many of The Tubes selections, it is probably best summed up as a satirical view of American culture.  In this case, the songwriters parody our affluent, materialistic society and its endless search for meaning and fulfillment.  A society that, by the way, hasn’t improved since the mid-1970s, when the album came out.  Many would argue that it’s gotten far worse.
