Lazy Weekend Music: Just Stop

Posted on: December 13, 2014

Good late Saturday afternoon, y’all.  After this week, we need to all just stop.  Stop what we’re doing, stop what we’re worried about, stop the noises around us and in us.

So, let’s pay tribute to songs with the word “stop”.  “Stop” in the title, “stop” in the lyrics, “stopped”. “Stopping”, even “quit” or “quitting”.  Just as long as the implication is clear – screeching halt.  That’s what we need for the next thirty-six hours or so.  A full “stop” to anything that isn’t helpful, fun, or both.

Otherwise, this is an open thread.

(1) Stop Dragging My Heart Around – Stevie Nicks

(2) Don’t Stop Believing – Journey

(3) Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow – Fleetwood Mac

(4) Who’ll Stop the Rain –  Creedence Clearwater Revival

(5) Stop In the Name of Love – The Supremes


So, stop what you are doing and get into this with us.

Probably the flip side of a single or something but…

Good song picks! We all need reminders to stop and focus on whats good in life!

I’m gonna stop for awhile now.

Yay for Marcus Mariota. Sorry Amari but it’s anyone but Bama for anything.

Well here’s what I want to do about this little announcement:

@15, I rewrote lil’ Bobby’s second paragraph and I thank him for the inspiration:

These are historic and defining times just as any time a self-serving politician begins a campaign to once again pander and vilify anyone outside the ever-dwindling ultra-right conservative base. A renewed world order of xenophobia is being driven by U.S. militaristic interests seeking to arm any sect in any civil war including arming our country’s police forces as if they were occupying militias. Our nation is faced with a soul-less 1%, an epidemic of concentrated wealth and burgeoning crime on Wall Street, a saturation of intolerance in our communities, a deficit of hope in our homes, a growing percentage of our children who go to bed hungry, more citizens held in prisons than any other country on the planet and 50% of them with mental health issues, an insurgent class working to limit the voting franchise, a growing nihilist class who decry all science as voodoo, exploding intolerance, celebratory ignorance, and the denial of ever-growing racism.

@16: I love it! 🙂

Poor lil booby never had an original thought in his life. Obviously an attempt to imitate Perry’s thing from the last time around and I hope it has the same end result.

@Prolix: Too bad I can’t fit that into a tweet. 😆
