From the movie: ROCK YOU SINNERS 1958
Another clip form what is said to be the first full length British Rock & Roll movie. This all reminds me of when as a teenager I read an abridged version of Winston Churchill’s “A History of the English Speaking Peoples”. Yeah I was a history geek even then. This work described the common history that we in the English speaking countries all evolved from but there’s something beyond that. Though all the English speaking countries have their own unique cultures there is a common culture that runs through all the English speaking world. Whether it”s Shakespeare, democracy or as in this case Rock & Roll there really is a common culture that we all share and I would argue we’re all enriched by.
