No offense, Mike, but bring back ABBA.
Yes, of course I get it! :0)But take a look at this!https://youtu.be/StDpLge_ITM
What??? Not a fan of the Boss??? OMG! Well, I guess I'll forgive ya, Jeff. Have a terrific 4th!
Y'know, as I write this it is 7:30 on a cloudy and cool morning and Laurie is still crashed out with the insidious mutts. I remember when I was in college and people would sing this song at keg parties during the Reagan years when I was at UCONN. I knew at the time that they didn't quite get the lyrics, but this tune became representative of patriotism. And, I gotta tell ya, I think that's fine. I do not think that this tune is anti-American. I think that it incorporates criticism of the US with love of home.
I just never understand what he's saying. Being a musician, people think I'm a snob, but I never tell anyone what they should or shouldn't like, although I can stand death metal. Springsteen's O.K. I wouldn't stand on the boardwalk in Asbury Park, NJ and shout "he sucks!" I want to live.I love Cagney doing Yankee Doodle Boy. Not everyone's cup of apple pie, but I dig it!
Should read can't, as in cannot, stand death metal. That, or rap going on in the car next to me at a red light. b'boom, b'boom.
Years ago I invented a new type of music. It was a cross between Country and Rap. I called it Crap.
Speaking of protest songs, Joan Baez chimes in with her take on "Nasty Man" Trump:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AHQ7N9lEl_EAt about 1:25 in, we hear (and see) this verse:///////////////////////// Fumblin’ and bumblin’ through the halls at nightTurning every light switch on Searching for the room where you used to be the groomBut she’s packed all her jew-ler-ee and gone.Yeah, she’s scooped up all of her jew-ler-ee and gone.///////////////////////// I don't like the look of that. Or am I must being sensitive?
just being sensitive
seeing as this is the one large country in the "global north" which treated Jews nicely, damn proud to be an American! Plus Columbus was a crypto-Jew converso (alleged), hence why I will defend him.
Mr. Patrick Condell has no Jewish ancestors and no religion that might cause him to favor Jews.
