The Widdershins

Archive for May 19th, 2013

Good Sunday, Widdershins.

Hasn’t this just been one helluva week in Washington?  The Republicans may finally turn loose of Benghazi now that they have the IRS debacle whereupon the applications for 501(c)(4) applications were actively (gasp!) scrutinized for actual tax-exempt sorts of activities and the DOJ (oh, nos!) subpoenaed reporters phone records.  Activity of this sort has never, ever happened before, excepting for those times when the precious administration was keeping us “safe from terrorism” by auditing the NAACP, Greenpeace, and other such nefarious groups. That was completely different – just ask the Republicans. they’ll set you straight in two shakes of a politician’s conscience.

At any rate, I propose that we dedicate today to songs that are about disasters, whether personal heartbreak or nuclear holocaust.   ,The usual rules of title/artist/lyrics apply.  Here are my five selections in no particular order.  I look forward to y’alls in this otherwise open thread.  This should add some dimension to Washington’s terrible, awful, no-good week.

(1) Life Goes On – The Kinks, 1977

(2) Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald – Gordon Lightfoot, 1976

(3) The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down – The Band, 1969

(4) Trying to Reason with  Hurricane Season – Jimmy Buffet, 1974

(5) Louisiana, 1927 – Aaron Neville, 1974

In honor of the awful, horrible, terrible, no-good week, I propose that we honor songs written about disasters.  Any kind will do, from personal heartbreaks to full-on nuclear holocaust. There’s a bunch to choose from, and it may just be cathartic.  Mine are listed below, in no particular order, and as always, both title and artist count.
