Walk On By by Laura Nyro

Things change over time, our minds change, our capabilities change.  Recall that 2,500 years ago some talented people routinely memorized the Iliad.  Try that today, I dare you. 

What has changed over the last thirty or forty years?  I don't know.  But everybody having a complete library in their pockets at all times, and access to the entire history of music at finger-tip level, I don't know, don't you think that it changes the game plan?  How different are these Millenniums anyway?  And in what ways?  

One woman and a piano forte, singing a very commercial pop song that she didn't even write.  I don't know, is it just me?  I'm impressed.
